It’s no secret that Samsung is working on its first Android Go smartphone. While the company hasn’t made an official announcement yet, the number of leaks hints at an imminent launch. Adding to that list is a listing on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), which has pretty much confirmed the upcoming smartphone’s name.

The listing, spotted by Sammobile, mentions the name Samsung Galaxy J2 Core. It also mentions seven model numbers, which are being currently tested. These include the SM-J260F, SM-J260M, SM-J260Y, SM-J260F_DS, SM-J260G_DS, SM-J260M_DS, and SM-J260Y_DS.

The listing however doesn’t reveal any more details about the smartphone. But the latest spotting, along with a recent listing on US’ FCC website is a clear indication of an imminent launch. Needless to say, the smartphone will be launched with an ultra-affordable price tag. If and when it is launched in India, it will be the most affordable device in Samsung’s Galaxy J-series.

Samsung Galaxy J2 Core rumored specifications, features

While the new listing doesn’t reveal anything about the smartphone’s features, previous leaks have. Based on these leaks, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core is expected to feature a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. It is also likely to come with an 8-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, and a 2,600mAh battery.

As you expect from Google’s Android Go initiative, the smartphone will provide smooth user experience despite the meagre specifications. But leaks claim that the device won’t run stock Android. Instead, it will run Android 8.1 Oreo wrapped under Samsung’s Experience Skin. It will also have all the Google Go apps preloaded.
