Samsung’s first Android Go smartphone seems to have gotten a certification from the FCC. As spotted by Android Headlines, the much-anticipated Samsung’s Android Go smartphone has now made an appearance on the US FCC website.

As per the report, there are multiple listings on the FCC, which include the Samsung SM-J260G/DS, SM-J260Y, and SM-J260G. While FCC listings do not reveal specifications of the device, they do mention that the smartphone will include a microSD card slot for further expansion.

Last time around, the alleged Android Go smartphone from Samsung was spotted on Wi-Fi Alliance certification with listing suggesting it to run Android 8.1 Oreo.

There are not many details available as of now, but the rumor around the block suggests it to be marketed as the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core, but without the full-fledged Android Go UI/UX, and may skin Samsung’s custom ROM on top of Android. Although it will still per-install Google’s Go apps, like YouTube Go, Google Maps Go. Gmail Go etc.

Previous rumors for the alleged Samsung Galaxy J2 Core hints at a 5-inch AMOLED display, an Exynos 7570 quad-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz coupled with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which will be further expandable via microSD card slot (which FCC listing also notes). A recent image leak also showed Samsung ditching physical buttons in favor of on-screen navigation buttons.
