There has been a rumor around lately that Samsung is planning to launch an Android Go device very soon, but the company has not made any official announcements to confirm it yet. Nevertheless, a device has been spotted on Geekbench that is most likely this rumored, upcoming Android Go device by Samsung with quite basic specs, as expected. The spotted handset, aka SM-J260G will probably be sold as the Galaxy J2 Core according to online sources, but we will have to wait for the official confirmation.
In case you are not aware, Android Go is a lite version of Android 8.0 Oreo that will run smoothly on even entry level devices with very weak specs. In fact, a lot of first party apps like Gmail and Google Maps already has a Go version that runs smoothly on the OS. Major third-party apps like Facebook also has a dedicated app to run flawlessly on low-powered devices running on Android Go. Would you buy an Android Go smartphone from Samsung?
