Samsung Galaxy M01 Core Overview

Display and Design

Given its budget nature, the Galaxy M01 Core bears an outdated design. While modern budget devices are moving to notch and punch-hole display, M01 Core comes with traditional bezels. It features a 5.3-inch PLS TFT LCD screen with an HD+ resolution of 1480 x 720 pixels. The chin is reduced to what we saw on the J2 Core 2020 and thus, there is no place for any physical button or branding.Samsung Galaxy M01 Core design color options

The majority of the back panel is covered with stripes. Samsung is calling it a stripe design, because duh. A pill-shaped module houses a rear camera and an LED flash. Samsung Galaxy M01 Core is 8.6mm thick and is available in three different colors – Black, Blue, Red.
