Samsung may never release an Android One phone but it seems to like the Android Go platform. The manufacturer already has two Android Go phones – the Galaxy J2 Core and the Galaxy J4 Core. They may soon be joined by a third member called the Galaxy A2 Core.
Yesterday, an official render of the upcoming phone was shared on the web yesterday. Unfortunately, there are no accompanying specs but we get to see what the phone looks like ahead of its release.
The Galaxy A2 Core has huge bezels surrounding its display just like the Galaxy J2 Core. Save for the position of the sensors and front-facing camera, they could pass for the same phone. However, things are different on the back.
Samsung has put just a single camera on the rear of the Galaxy A2 Core which isn’t a surprise. It is positioned in the top left corner and it shares the same housing with the LED flash. A few millimeters below the camera setup are two slits for the speaker. This design will mean sounds will be muffled when the phone is placed with the screen facing up.
The render shows the Galaxy A2 Core has an audio jack at the bottom to the right of the charging port. The phone will come in blue and black.
The Galaxy A2 Core was spotted on Geekbench last month as the Samsung SM-A260F. The benchmark result revealed it has 1GB of RAM and is powered by an Exynos 7870 processor. Sadly, it will run Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) out of the box and not the newer Android Pie (Go Edition).
