It will initially be available in India and Malaysia.
Samsung has revealed its first smartphone created specifically for Android Go, Google’s stripped-down mobile OS. The Korean manufacturer has been making affordable phones for a long time, and they’ve been doing quite well in developing markets where they’re being sold. It’s really no surprise that it has conjured up a Go phone of its own — this could even be the first of many.
The Samsung Galaxy J2 Core comes pre-loaded with apps tweaked for the platform. It’s not entirely clear which apps those are, but Google already released several Go-optimized applications, including scaled-down versions of the Google app, Assistant, YouTube, Gboard, Chrome, Maps, Files, Gmail and Google Play.
