It is already known that Samsung is currently working on an Android Go Edition based device that may be launched soon. The device had already received the FCC approval which indicates an imminent launch. Now, as per sources, the smartphone has been certified by Bluetooth SIG (Special Interests Group) which has revealed that the device will be called Samsung Galaxy J2 Core.
As per a SamMobile report, seven different variants of the Samsung Galaxy J2 have received the Bluetooth SIG certification. The devices carry model numbers SM-J260F, SM-J260M, SM-J260Y, SM-J260F_DS, SM-J260G_DS, SM-J260M_DS, and SM-J260Y_DS. These models could be the new variants of the Android Go Edition based devices from the company.
Regarding the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core, the Bluetooth SIG certification report has not revealed any information about the smartphone except for the name. However, as per earlier reports, the Samsung device will feature a 5-inch Super AMOLED Display. It will be powered by Samsung Exynos 7570 SoC paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of inbuilt storage space.
The smartphone will run on Android Oreo (Go Edition) out of the box with Samsung Experience UI on top. It will feature an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie shooter on the front. The device will pack a 2,600mAh battery under the hood.
Coming to the price of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core, no information is available at the present moment and there is no news about the availability either. However, since the smartphone has already received its FCC and Bluetooth SIG certifications, the device may be launched in the coming weeks. Also since the smartphone is a budget variant, it is likely to be priced much lower than the existing Samsung Galaxy J series of devices.
When the smartphone gets launched, it is going to become the first Android Go based device from the South Korean tech giant. This phone is likely to give stiff competition to leading Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo due to its low price.
