Samsung's upcoming budget phone equipped with a removable battery has been approved by Bluetooth and the certificate reveals an interesting detail about the device: its name. Up until now, Samsung's mysterious budget phone was known solely by the model number SM-A013F, leading some people to believe that the device will be released as the Galaxy A01e. We previously pointed out the reason why this is highly unlikely and Bluetooth SIG has now confirmed our expectation. According to the certificate that was published earlier today, the SM-A013F will hit the market as the Galaxy A01 Core.

Samsung's Galaxy Core lineup makes a comeback?

Samsung's Core-labeled smartphones are budget devices through and through. The most recent phone to carry the Core branding was the Galaxy J2 Core (2020) – a re-release of the original Galaxy J2 Core that was unveiled in August 2018. There was also the Galaxy A2 Core in-between the original J2 Core and its refresh, and the reason why we bring up these Galaxy Core models is because they all share one characteristic. You've guessed it: they all have a user-removable battery. And true to the moniker, the upcoming Galaxy A01 Core is also expected to follow this all but forgotten design.

The Galaxy A01 Core should have dual-SIM capabilities, according to Bluetooth, and it should be equipped with a MediaTek MT6739WW SoC paired with 1GB of RAM, judging by a previous benchmark. Its user-removable battery will have a capacity of 3,000mAh, and the phone should run Android 10, or at least the simplified Go Edition designed for smartphones equipped with fewer than 2GB of RAM.

Have removable batteries remained an important aspect for you or have you given up on this concept over the past few years? Will you be interested in buying the Galaxy A01 Core thanks to this unusual characteristic? How much would you be willing to pay for Samsung's upcoming budget phone? Let us know in the comment section below.
