    Samsung's third Android Go phone, the Galaxy A2 Core, has been launched in South Africa. Powered by the Go edition of Android 9.0 Pie, the device packs quite a punch at an affordable price. It comes with lighter versions of Google’s software suite to provide a fluid user experience on low-end hardware.

    The Galaxy A2 Core features a 5-inch TFT qHD display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Under the hood is an octa-core 1.6GHz Exynos 7870 processor with Mali T830 GPU. There's 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card. For optics, the Galaxy A2 Core gets a 5MP f1.9 rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, and a 5MP front-facing shooter. The device packs a 2600mAh battery and comes with 4G LTE support and dual SIM slots. Sensors onboard include an accelerometer and a proximity sensor.

    The Galaxy A2 Core isn't for someone who's looking for a powerful smartphone. This device is targeted at those who want a decent smartphone experience on a tight budget. The Galaxy A2 Core is priced at R1299 (~$90) in South Africa, making it an excellent value-for-money buy. The phone is available in black and blue with a glossy finish on the back.
