    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.
