    Galaxy A01 Core leak reminds us single rear cameras are still a thing

    The Galaxy A01 Core is likely close to release as it's now making the news for the third time in a week. This time, on the account of a hi-res press render leaked just moments ago, showing the entry-level smartphone in two colors – blue and red. There's also no understating that “entry-level” part, seeing how the Galaxy A01 Core appears to be a truly barebones device, even for the low-end range of the ultra-competitive smartphone market.

    It's currently unclear whether Samsung has plans to release the Galaxy A01 Core in more color options than the two seen above. The image itself was shared by known industry insider Evan Blass, also known by his “evleaks” handle, via Patreon.

    Two colors, one camera… zero reasons to buy?

    Needless to say, with how affordable mid-rangers have gotten in recent years, there's little reason to consider an entry-level smartphone in 2020. Samsung itself appears to be aware of that fact given how much it reduced the number of such handsets it releases on an annual basis over the last half a decade. The Galaxy A01 Core will presumably be primarily targeted at developing countries, as is the case with most low-end devices Samsung's still making these days.

    Perhaps the most compelling reason to consider buying the Galaxy A01 Core in 2020 will be its recently confirmed removable battery, a feature that's rarely encountered in today's smartphone market. One international variant of the entry-level handset had its model number spotted online earlier this week, with the SM-A013F/DS designator being indicative of dual-SIM capabilities. Samsung's upcoming device will also utilize an 18:9 (2:1) display sporting a resolution of 1,480 by 720 pixels. That combination of specs also suggests a diagonal of approximately five inches. Combined with the rest of its modest feature set, including that single rear camera that really looks out of place in this day and age, the Galaxy A01 Core should debut in the ballpark of $100.
