Now, Samsung has joined the bandwagon with their own upcoming Android Oreo Go edition phone, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core.

Nothing is official from Samsung’s side, but the phone has been spotted in Geekbench earlier today. Take a look at the Geekbench listing:

As you can see, the phone is powered by a 1.43Ghz quad core SoC. Which is reported to be Samsung’s own Exynos 7570 SoC. The phone scores a single core score of 625 & a multi core score of 1747.

Now, this is a budget centric phone and will be placed below current J2 2017 device in the market.

Also, it is to be seen that how the UI of the phone will be, especially since Samsung’s phone comes with their own custom skin, Experience UI. As other Android Go devices chose to remain stock, it needs to be seen if Samsung would also be doing that or slap their skin on top of stock Android go and make it even heavier.

According to the sources, there will be two different variants of this device, the one which is powered by the Meditek Helio P60 processor and coupled with 4GB of RAM, and the other one which is powered by Snapdragon 636 and 6GB of RAM.

This was one of the best devices which Nokia has ever launched back then in the year 2009.
