Samsung SM-J260G could be company's first Android Go phone

Himanshu, 26 April 2018

A new Samsung smartphone has been spotted in a benchmark listing. Listed on Geekbench as SM-J260G, it's an entry-level smartphone that could be well be the South Korean company's first Android Go attempt.

As you can see, this is a low-end handset with 1GB RAM, but runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Android Go is an iteration of Oreo aimed at smartphones with modest hardware, while Samsung doesn't typically release its entry-level devices with the latest available Androive version. Oh, and the motherboard is listed as "universal7570_go."

So enough indications that SM-J260G is an Android Go phone. Reports say it could carry the 'Galaxy J2 Core' moniker. Of course, nothing is yet officially confirmed. We'll let you know when more information related to this device surfaces.

Very interested in the Android Go devices. Android, but simplified. I like it. It brings Android to a line of devices that would otherwise be super laggy and hard to use.
