Samsung Galaxy A01 Core certified by Thailand's NBTC

George, 11 July 2020

The Samsung Galaxy A01 Core was first seen late last month in the Google Play Console and in Bluetooth SIG certification documents. We then caught a glimpse of some official-looking renders. We're now learning it has also been approved by the NBTC, Thailand's telecom regulator.

As usual, the NBTC database entry doesn't reveal much about the specifications of the phone other than the fact that it's a dual SIM device - as evidenced by the 'DS' in the model name, same as in the Bluetooth listing.

From the previous reports we know that it will be built around a 5.1-inch 720p display and will be powered by an old Mediatek MT6739WW chipset with a quad-core CPU. How it will get the certified Bluetooth 5.0 capabiliy with that chip that technically supports 4.1 is beyond us - likely a mistake in one of the conflicting documents. The speculated specs include a single gig of RAM and Android 10 OS.

It's unclear when the Galaxy A01 Core will become official, but with certification proceedings underway here and there, its release date must be approaching.
