After an okay success of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core, Samsung has launched another Android Go phone in the market. The new Galaxy A2 Core looks and feels very much like it’s predecessor, but there are a few subtle improvements. Since it’s not like a headline-making phone, the launch was very subtle.
Samsung Galaxy A2 Core Overview
The A2 Core looks and feels very much like its predecessor. Nothing bezel-less, or one with a notch. Just your regular old-fashioned bezels and small screen and stuff. You get a plastic body with removable back. All the makings of your old-fashioned phone.
This phone has 5″ screen with an IPS LCD panel. That is an improvement over the TFT display of the J2 Core. Still, the screen resolution is the same, with the same aspect ratio. The camera sees a downgrade, though, as it is 5 MP for both the front and rear. This phone runs on the Exynos 7870 with 1 GB RAM and up to 16 GB storage. But there is a microSD card slot in there as well. Also, there’s a 2600 mAh battery powering it and there’s also a headphone jack.
This phone runs on the Android Pie variant of Go edition. So, you’ll get the Lite versions of the apps. Don’t expect anything worth mentioning, though.
The phone launched in India for the price of INR.5290 for the 16 GB variant. There’s also an 8 GB version. The 16GB of Samsung Galaxy A2 core is available in Nepal for Rs. 8,499.
So, for those who are limited by their budget, this runs the latest software. So, this could be a good option for your grandparents!
