The next Android Go smartphone from Samsung was unveiled by a rendering of a leaked print. The Galaxy A2 Core will be the first Android Go Galaxy A series phone and the device is already present in the support section of the Samsung website. The rendering shows the date of March 22 on the lock screen, so we can expect it to become official on that date.
From the front, the Galaxy A2 Core looks very similar to the Galaxy J2 Core, large frames with the Samsung logo included. The back is a bit different, with the camera module shifted to the top left as many recent low-cost and mid-range Samsung phones and a speaker grid just below. We also know the basic specifications of the Galaxy A2 Core thanks to its appearance on the Geekbench website last month: it has 1 GB of RAM and is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7870 chipset.
The Geekbench list had the Galaxy A2 Core with Android 8.1 Oreo, and while we hope that Samsung will launch the device with Android Pie out of the box, we won't hold our breath. And yes, like Samsung's previous Android Go phones, the Galaxy A2 Core has no standard Android. However, it will have drastically lower features than standard Galaxy smartphones.
We can expect the Galaxy A2 Core to be launched in India and some of the neighboring markets. South Africa should also be on the list, as the country's local Samsung site has support pages for the device.
