Samsung’s First Android Go Smartphone Visits Geekbench

After Nokia, Samsung is now said to be working on an Android Oreo (Go Edition) smartphone, dubbed as the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core with model number Samsung SM-J260G. A mysterious Samsung smartphone with just 1GB of RAM has now paid a visit to popular benchmarking website Geekbench. As of now, there are no details on the moniker of the smartphone, but the listing which was first spotted by winfuture stating that the phone could be dubbed as Galaxy J2 Core. The Geekbench listing revealed the key specifications of the smartphone.


Like other Android Oreo (Go Edition) smartphones available in the market, the Samsung SM-J260G smartphone will also come with entry-level hardware. The chipset which is mentioned in the listing as Universal7570_Go could be the optimised version of the Samsung’s own Exynos 7570 chipset. The chipset will have four ARM Cortex A53 cores and a maximum clock speed of 1.43GHz.

The chipset is coupled with 1GB of RAM, which has become a rarity since 2017, but the Android Oreo (Go Edition) is designed specifically for devices with 1GB of RAM or less than that. At the time of running the benchmark, the Samsung SM-J260G was running Android Oreo 8.1.0, which is very much expected and further reiterates that the device will indeed be an Android Go Edition smartphone.


These are the details available about the purported Samsung’s first Android Go smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018) which recently went official arrived with SM-J250 model number, but the marketing terms for the Samsung SM-J260G model would be Galaxy J2 Core as per the report. winfuture publication received the smartphone name’s from third-party sources.

Google is aggressively pushing the Android Oreo (Go Edition) to smartphone manufacturers so that they can launch a smartphone under the program. Already, big brands such as HMD Global (Nokia), Alcatel launched their own Android Go smartphones, so it won’t be much of a surprise if Samsung follows the same path. Meizu has already confirmed that it will be launching an Android Go smartphone by the end of 2018 and other brands likely to join the train as well.
