The Samsung Galaxy A2 Core is official and it is just as expected. The launch is low-key, so there isnít even an official page for it yet on Samsung.com and right now, only a brick-and-mortar store has confirmed it will sell it (though that doesnít necessarily mean itís offline-exclusive).
The phone runs Android 9 Pie Go edition on an Exynos 7870 chipset (8x Cortex-A53 cores, Mali-T830 MP1, 14nm). It only has 1GB of RAM and 16GB storage, plus a microSD card slot (up to 256GB cards). Typical for a Go edition phone.
The 5Ē LCD screen is on the small side by modern standards. It has 540 x 960fps resolution (not sharp, but it wonít stress the chipset). Thereís a 5MP camera on the back and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. No notches or anything here - just old-fashioned thick bezels.
This is a dual SIM phone with VoLTE support, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.2 LE. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack and thereís an FM radio receiver. The battery has 2,600mAh capacity.
The Samsung A2 Core is available now for INR 5,300 ($76/Ä68).

Battery life will be amazing, for sure. A qHD screen and the Exynos 7870 (very good battery life from experience). My J7 Core gets 15 hours of screen-on-time. This has a lower resolution screen and slightly smaller battery. I expect better battery li...
