Android Go was a great initiative from Google. Its basic plan is to provide lighter and faster Android experience to lower end hardware. Samsung Galaxy J2 Core is an entry level phone which runs on the Android Go. Just to be clear, Android Go and One are totally different things. The Samsung Galaxy J2 Core Price in Nepal is Rs 11,690 which puts it in the lower tier of their portfolio.
This is Samsung’s most affordable offering in the budget range. It is very hard to see big companies come up with phones under Rs 10,000 these days. Well it is something special because there are very few phones with Android Go in market. As the Android OS system is getting ahead, people are also wanting new OS but the hardware of lower end market doesn’t allow that. Google then made this Go OS which is lighter and trimmed version of system software.
New Galaxy J2 Core is Samsung’s first phone to have that feature. Although there is a Samsung UI overlay at top, it is by all means a a Android Go phone. So the updates will be sent by Samsung OTA and not Google. This is a entry and basic level phone with the most basic hardware. Below we have mentioned hardware specification for J2 Core.
