Samsung has launched its new budget smartphone of 2020. Dubbed as the Galaxy J2 Core 2020, it features an outdated design along with outdated features. However, it does come with a budget-friendly price and is soon launching in Nepal.

Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 Overview

The Galaxy J2 Core 2020 is strikingly identical to the J2 Core 2018. For starters, it comes with a 5-inch 540 x 960 pixels 16:9 display. I didn’t see the AMOLED tagline mentioned anywhere, so we are not sure just yet. The smartphone comes equipped with an Exynos 7570 SoC, a QuadCore 1.4GHz CPU paired with just 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. To recall, the 2018 version had 8GB of storage.

Even though the specs seem to be underpowered, the use of Android Go should help a lot with better performance. Samsung claims a 15% faster app opening times, but real-life usage may differ. However, it’s still running on the older Oreo 8.1 which is extremely strange.

The camera setup comes with an 8MP f/2.2 at the back with an LED flash and a 5MP f/2.2 at the front. It also comes with a removable back and a removable 2600mAh battery.

If you look at the renders of the smartphone, you might notice that the front does not have the same home button as the other Galaxy smartphones. It comes with a rather J-series like the front but without the extra tall or extra thin bezels. This might be due to the software itself, which might not take full advantage of the home button.

The J2 Core 2020 has 4G LTE and comes with a dual SIM slot. It is available in 3 colors: Gold, Blue, and Black.
