Samsung has finally unveiled its first Android Oreo Go Edition phone â€“ the Galaxy J2 Core. The handset is built with an affordable price in mind and is meant to appeal to first time smartphone owners.
The Samsung Galaxy J2 sports a 5-inch qHD screen and features LTE connectivity (Cat. 4 150Mbps), which is now a tradition these days. Thereâ€™s also Wi-Fi (2.4GHz) if you want to save your data allowance.
The OS is trimmed down to use up less RAM and memory. Okay, weâ€™ll rip the band-aid off â€“ the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core has only 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. There is a microSD card slot, naturally. And itâ€™s powered by an Exynos 7570 chipset â€“ a 14nm part with four 1.4GHz Cortex-A53 cores and a Mali-T720 MP1.
As far as camera, the phone comes with an 8MP on the back along with a 5MP selfie camera on the front (both have f/2.2 aperture).
It has a 2,600mAh battery that promises all-day use. Go Editionâ€™s Ultra Data Saving feature will make life easier on a low-cost data plan.
