Galaxy J2 Core, Samsung's first Android Go smartphone?

Judging by the specs, the SM-J260G in question might be the first Samsung Android Go handset that could reportedly be launched as the Galaxy J2 Core. The company has informed that its new smartphone will be studded with Samsung mall feature. In fact, the Galaxy J2 2018 doesn't come with any fingerprint scanner at all. The phone has been priced at Rs 8,190 and will be made available in the market from April 27, which is tomorrow. Under the hood, the smartphone is fueled by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage which is further expandable up to 256GB. For the shopping part, the phone comes loaded with Samsung Mall, an India-exclusive app that Samsung recently launched to enable users to find new products through visual search (by using the camera for shooting pictures of a related product) and buying products from various online stores from a single location.

The availability of the Samsung Mall app on the Galaxy J2 (2018) brings three key features, including a Visual Search, One-stop Shop, and a Universal Cart.

In the photography department, Galaxy J2 2018 sports an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera with LED flash. For avid social media users, Samsung's proprietary "Move to Memory Card" feature is an advanced memory management solution that de-clutters the internal memory, thereby enhancing the smartphone experience.
