Late last month appeared by Geekbench a device called SM-J260G, which, based on its specifications, pointed out that Samsung had set course for Android Go and would cease to be that manufacturer with low-end devices optimized little. Now we have new information that makes us think that the one known as Samsung Galaxy J2 Core It will be a reality in not much time.
And is that if Geekbench was not enough proof of the existence of a device (fakes apart), now a trademark application confirm what we already thought: there will be a Samsung smartphone with Android Go, and will belong to the series J.
We remind you that Android Go is a very light and optimized version of Android 8.0 Oreo designed to consume very few resources, so much so, that Google people have not only taken the trouble to optimize the operating system, but has created redesigned versions of their suite focused to consume the least possible resources without losing functionality.
Android Go is therefore a very strong bet of Google for the optimization and something that is expected to lead to a strong boost of smartphones in developing countries, since it considerably reduces the price of devices.
Android Go does not need especially powerful processors and is designed to consume less than 1 GB of RAM , so seeing that the SM-J260G boasted such a large amount of RAM, it was not difficult to guess where the Koreans were pointing, especially since the operating system chosen for this device is Android Oreo 8.1 , the one used as a base for Android Go.
But of course, although it was quite clear that Samsung was behind a basic smartphone, the name was still a mystery, since the code name referred to the J series, but everything else was a mere presumption. Now, after a trademark application submitted by Samsung to the Intellectual Property Office of Korea, we know that the pools were successful and that this will be the name of the Samsung’s first smartphone with Android Go .
As a compilation, remember that the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core will use an optimized Exynos processor named with the code name of Universal7570_Go (a variant of quad core Exynos 7570 , which points even more to this operating system), while connectivity would include a LTE modem of category 4, WiFi, Bluetooth, FM radio and GNSS (GPS).
The specifications are quite basic as is logical, since the type of RAM managed is LPDDR3, and the storage is of type eMMC 5.0 , although yes, this Samsung Galaxy J2 Core could handle cards Micro-SD version 3.0 , something that is always welcome.
For now, the rest of the data about the screen, the storage or the photographic capacity of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core is not known, although it can be presumed that everything will be quite humble, since the important thing in this type of devices is to reduce costs as is logical. We will inform you of all the new information that is coming to light.
