What can you expect from a sub-$100 phone? Check out the Galaxy J2 Core, Samsung's first Android Go smartphone, as it gets official.
Samsung continues to expand the popular budget-friendly Galaxy J smartphone family, with the J2 2018 officially unveiled in India, and a J2 Core likely in the pipeline running Android Oreo (Go Edition) software.
Believe it or not, Samsung seems proud of the missing Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE support on the Korea-only Galaxy J2 Pro, priced at the rough equivalent of $185.
Samsung may have been India's top overall 2017 smartphone vendor, but Xiaomi won the final quarter, also leading the full-year model popularity chart.
Far from what you'd call special or eye-catching mobile gear, the entry-level Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) and mid-range Galaxy On7 Prime have come out in Vietnam and India respectively.
In spite of what the name suggests, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018) looks closer to a 2015 than a 2018 Android smartphone release.
The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro is slightly more powerful than the standard J2 (2016), while the Galaxy Tab J looks identical to the Galaxy J Max inside and out.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy J2 (2016) looks an awful lot like the recently released J3 (2016), which makes us wonder exactly what the OEM is thinking.
