Earlier this year, Samsung brought back the rather forgotten Core-model smartphone with the refresh of J2 Core – the J2 Core 2020. However, it won’t be the only Core device to launch this year. Recent leaks suggest Samsung is working on Galaxy A01 Core. Like the J2 Core, it will be a budget device with outdated design and specs. Let’s take a look at all the rumors and leaks surrounding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A01 Core.
Samsung Galaxy A01 Core – All the Leaks
Though it was confused for Galaxy A01e initially, recent certifications have revealed that the upcoming budget offering from Samsung will be called Galaxy A01 Core. These certifications and listings have also shed light on preliminary specs.
Design and Display
As of now, there are no proper renders of the phone. But the device has been listed on the Google Play Console with an image of its front side. While recent budget devices like the Galaxy A11 are equipped with a punch-hole display, the A01 Core features thick bezels. The chin is comparatively slimmer than that on J2 Core. The same listing reveals the screen will have a resolution of 720 x 1480 pixels and 320 DPI.
Like any other budget device, it will sport a plastic body. We aren’t expecting a fingerprint sensor, so the back of the device will most probably only have the camera module and signature Samsung branding.
Performance and Memory
The Galaxy A01 core with MediaTek’s MT6739 processor. It is a quad-core processor consisting of four ARM Cortex – A53 clocked at 1.5 GHz. It’s both outdated and underpowered. And the fact that the device comes with only 1GB of RAM makes it worse.
While there is no information about the size storage, it will be based on slower eMMC 5.1 technology. The phone will run on Android 10. We are confident it will be the Go edition, as the specs of the device won’t be able to handle the regular version.
Battery and Connectivity
The J2 Core 2020 featured a removable battery, so it’s possible that the A01 Core will feature one as well. There will be a micro-USB port for charging.
It will also come with support for Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth.
