Galaxy A2 Core launches in India for the budget-conscious

Following in the footsteps of the Galaxy J2 Core and Galaxy J4 Core, Samsung has launched its third Android Go handset. This time, however, it isn’t a member of the Galaxy J series. It is instead a barebones model in the company’s Galaxy A lineup.

Being a bottom of the barrel Android Go device, the Galaxy A2 Core isn’t going to win any awards in the power department, featuring a 5-inch TFT screen (540 x 960), a 1.6GHz Exynos 7870 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable internal storage, a 5MP rear- and front-facing shooter, and a 2600mAh cell.

Priced at ₹5290 ($76) in India, the Galaxy A2 Core is astounding value for money — offering the most boiled down version of Samsung’s Android 9.0 Pie software, as well as 4G and dual SIM slots, to those on a tight budget; while also catering to those who don’t need all the bells and whistles that mid-to-high-end devices offer.

The Galaxy A2 Core definitely isn’t the handset for those looking to run intensive games, though. Android Go runs lighter versions of Google’s software suite to provide a fluid user experience on low-end hardware that would otherwise struggle to run Android, so top-tier applications are off the table.

“Exynos 7870 CPU”

This CPU is good. You can find it in J5 2017 and A6

Yep, 100 times better than Snapdragon 425 or one of those Mediatek SoC
