According to a new report, Samsung’s first Android Go smartphone won’t run stock Android (Go version) as we expected as this is an Android Go phone. The report shows a couple of image revealing that the device will have the Go versions of Google’s official apps which are installed over the company’s Experience UX.
A quick check over the official Android Go website will tell you that it doesn’t mean users will get a stock Android experience. Instead, it is meant to offer an experience that requires less computing power in affordable smartphones.
Samsung’s Android Go smartphone will be named Galaxy J2 Core and is clear now it won’t been running stock Android. The South Korean manufacturer did released Galaxy smartphones (like Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition) running stock Android via Google Play Edition program a couple of years before. But the company’s future lookout is to bring even its wearables under the Galaxy brand, which is why it will be odd to run stock Android at this point.
From the leaked pictures, the smartphone is running the Go versions of the official Google apps installed. The company is using its standard Device Maintenance feature for Android Go’s data saving and storage management functionality. Another theory is that it has switched back to the Smart Manager app that came pre-loaded with devices launched before 2016. IT will like have the same features and abilities as the Device Maintenance tool on Modern Galaxy smartphone though.
From the images, you may have noticed that the smartphone doesn’t feature a Infinity display and have on-screen navigation buttons. The company may be looking forward to ditch the physical home button and capacitive navigation buttons on all smartphones, even if they don’t have an all-screen design. The device runs the latest Android 8.1 carrying the security patch for December 5, 2017 but it will likely be updated.
The smartphone is still in testing phase and its too early to comment when the device will be launched. Having said that , it was spotted in benchmarking website a GeekBench and a spec sheet of the device was leaked last month which revealed it will be powered by an Exynos 7570 Quad-core chipset coupled with 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. It will offer a 8MP rear and 5MP front camera and will be backed by an 2,600 mAh battery.

Honor will be launching a new flagship phablet called Honor Note 10. It was teased earlier this week and also appeared in GeekBench. Now, a new set of very real looking set of images have appeared online, which shows it being compared with a Nintendo Switch. Take a look:
The Honor Note 10 image reveals the upcoming phablet will feature a FullView display akin to Huawei’s previous flagship phones of this year excluding the notch. The top and bottom has very sleek bezels which should lead to a high screen-to-body ratio.
The Honor Note 10 will feature a massive 6.9 AMOLED display which is supplied by Samsung It is once again powered by the company’s Kirin 970 SoC, which we saw in Huawei P20 series, Honor View 10, Honor Play and the recently launched Honor 10. It is coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.

White variant of Oppo Find X Leaked! Launching Soon?
OPPO has recently unveiled the Oppo Find X which is a matter of talks since the time of launch due to its innovative design or we should say- one of the most innovative designs we ever saw since past few years. The device is currently available in two colour variants including the Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. Now, few images have appeared online which showcase the white version of the device.
The leaked images are sourced from two different leaksters. The first image partially reveals the glossy back panel of a white coloured Oppo device which matches exactly with the one on the Oppo Find X.
The other image showcases the front side of the device, which again, is on par with the Oppo Find X due to the nearly bezel-less design with 3D curved edges. Both the images look realistic, adding to the credibility of the same.
As far as the above images are concerned, it seems that Oppo has been already working on a White version too. Anyways, it’s common among Chinese manufacturers like Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, Honor and OnePlus to launch new colour versions of the device after a few weeks of its launch. This practice not only helps them to stay in the limelight but also bring a significant boost in the number of sales. Therefore, we expect the Chinese giant to launch the white version in the coming few weeks.
The Oppo Find X comes with a 92.95% screen to body ratio due to the fact that the middle section of the device motorizes up to reveal both the cameras, whenever needed. It comes with a 6.4-inch FullHD+ OLED display and Snapdragon 845 SoC.
In India, the device retails for a price tag of Rs. 59,990 (~$876). Additionally, a premium Find X Lamborghini Edition will come to India as well, which will be made available next month in China for 9,999 Yuan (~$1,495). Though the device is yet to land in European markets, it is confirmed to land in U.K. by the Spokesperson of the company. Stay tuned for more updates.
