Android Oreo (Go edition)
This is probably the main highlight of this Galaxy J2 Core 2020. It is powered by Android Oreo (Go Edition) like no other Samsung smartphone before it. People have been asking why Samsung even released this phone but we strongly feel the company’s motive can be supported by the inclusion of Android Oreo (Go Edition). This could only be experimented (so to say) on an entry-level smartphone.
Now Android Oreo (Go edition) delivers a great performance. With it come to Go Applications and the Go slogan Samsung is using for this device see website. The device is also said to have a 15% faster rater of opening applications because of its installed software. To be honest, we think this was a smart move. Moreover, who has never dreamed of a Samsung phone running stock Android? Even though Android 8.1 is a bit outmoded for 2020 phones.
A 2600 mAh battery capacity would sound like it has very little to offer with a smartphone. But this is only true with high-end smartphones and not entry-level phones like the Galaxy J2 Core. So yes, Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 comes with a 2600 mAh battery. Based on (Samsung) Internal lab test conditions compared to Galaxy J2 2017 Edition, this one is capable of 1.5X YouTube video playback up to 12 hours. See the battery lasts as long as it does because this phone has a less demanding performance. And this even way lesser because it has Android Oreo (Go Edition).
We quote Samsung to this end. “The Galaxy J2 Core comes with a soft home button on a vibrant display to give you a seamless experience.” They go ahead to say it is a sleek and stylish phone. Now all this is good and will please whosoever buys this phone. At just 143.4 x 72.1 x 8.9 mm this is one of the most compact smartphones you can find in the market today.
The phone weighs just 154 g with its Glass front, plastic back build, and plastic frame. This soft home button basically is a touch-capacitive option on the display of Galaxy J2 Core 2020. Beside it are the recent and back keys. It has a chin and a forehead (top and bottom bezels) as you would expect. On the chin is Samsung branding while the top bezel has the selfie camera, call speaker, and some sensor (light?). This is a sweet looking smartphone.
Well, besides running Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition) Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 is powered by an Exynos 7570 Quad (14 nm) chipset. Exynos chipsets are Samsung’s very own. It also has a Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 1.4GHz as already hinted. The graphics of this one are ensured by its Mali-T720 GPU. You also get eMMC 5.0 expandable internal storage with this phone. There is a dedicated slot for the micro SD card. Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 comes with 16GB of internal storage and 1GB RAM.
Display and camera
Camera configuration of Galaxy J2 Core 2020 sees it feature an 8MP main camera and a 5 MP, f/2.2 front-facing selfie. They both take crisper shots and capture more detail in your shots for the price.
