The South Korean giant Samsung is amongst those OEMs who yet to release first Android Go phone in the US. From the look of the things, the company will soon release their first Android Go phone for the US market. In August this year, Samsung announced Galaxy J2 Core as their first Android Go Phone but the device was released for few markets only. As per the latest info, the company will release this device in the US but with a different moniker.
A few days ago Samsung trademarks two monikers in the US "Galaxy J2 Dash" and "Galaxy J2 Pure". It seems like the company will differentiate both the device on the basis of carriers support. As the names are quite new that's why we can't identify which carrier will be getting the Dash or Pure model or the company could bring few specs difference.
Just for the sake of reminder, the Galaxy J2 is featuring a plastic design being the entry-level phone. It features a 5-inches display panel with HD screen resolution. Under the hood, the Exynos 7570 chipset is powering the device with 1GB RAM and built-in native storage is 8GB. It supports memory expansion via MicroSD. The primary rear snapper is 8MP whereas the selfie sensor on the front is 5MP. A 2,600mAh battery is on board to keep its lights on. As OS the device is pre-installed with Android Oreo 8.1 Go version. The Go version is a light version of OS.
At the moment it is still in the dark when the company will release the phone for the US market. Considering the holiday season is just around the corner we can expect the company could release it soon to attract entry-level buyers. Being a budget-friendly phone it is expected to be released below $100. Do share your thoughts with fellow readers in the comments section below. Stay tuned.
