Samsung Galaxy J2 Core, company’s first Android Go device, nears release

Plenty of rumors have been doing rounds in regards to Samsung’s plans to launch its first Android Go smartphone dubbed Samsung Galaxy J2 Core. We already know quite a lot about the phone’s specs and features and not so long ago, hands-on images of the device also found their way to TAS.

The latest development comes from the Wi-Fi Alliance, where the device has now received clearance with model number SM-J250G/DS. Traditionally, this model number is meant for the Indian market, where the phone will also get a dual-SIM variant. However, not so long ago, we also learned that Samsung was trialing the device in multiple markets, with model numbers like SM-J260F and SM-J260M spotted, but these two have not been cleared by the WFA.

Nonetheless, the fact that the Galaxy J2 Core has received certification from the WFA means its launch is imminent, perhaps even this month or maybe early next month. Only time will tell.

Some of the specs touted for Samsung’s first Android Go device include a 5-inch Super AMOLED display screen with an Exynos 7570 and 1GB RAM running the show under the hood. It’s also said to come with an 8MP rear and 5MP front camera alongside a 2600mAh battery unit and support for 4G LTE connectivity.

Of course, the software underneath will be Android 8.1 Oreo, although Samsung’s Experience UX is also expected on top of the slimmed-down Android OS.
