Samsung has been working on another Android Go smartphone which will most likely be out in the not too distant future. The Galaxy A2 Core has already been revealed in a leaked press render. The user manual for this device has now become available.

This will be the first Android Go smartphone in Samsung's Galaxy A series. Samsung has already listed the device in the support section of its website. Earlier reports had suggested that it may be out before the end of this month.

Galaxy A2 Core user manual now available

The Galaxy J2 Core was Samsung's first Android Go smartphone and it came out last year. It was designed to offer a lightweight Android experience with entry-level specs which include just 1GB of RAM. While some manufacturers might opt for the stock UI for their Android Go devices, Samsung did slap its custom interface on the Galaxy J2 Core. It will do that for the Galaxy A2 Core as well.

As we noted in our Galaxy J2 Core hands-on, the phone felt optimized for the specs that it has, while Android Go feels smooth. The Go versions of popular apps like YouTube and Assistant are well optimized for the entry-level device as well. You can thus expect a similar experience with the Galaxy A2 Core.

The user manual for the Galaxy A2 Core bearing model number SM-A260F is now available for download in English. It highlights the device layout and sheds light on the various features that it offers. What it doesn't say is when the device will be released. The Galaxy J2 Core was priced at around $90 and that's likely what this handset may cost as well.
