Samsung's first Android Go powered smartphone receiving security update

24 October 2018 2

Korean tech giant Samsung announced its first smartphone powered by Android Go in the shape of Galaxy J2 Core, which was released about two months back with July 2018 security patch. In the latest development, Samsung is now rolling out October 2018 security patch to it. Samsung aims to release such security updates on a quarterly basis and considering that Galaxy J2 Core is considered to be an entry-level offering, this security update rollout schedule isn’t bad at all.


Galaxy J2 Core is available in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Malaysia, and Thailand, which would be receiving this update that weighs in at 170MB which is quite considerable for a security patch. The update would be received via OTA and you’d get a notification for it once it's there though you could always check out its availability manually by heading over to System >> Software update menu to see if it’s available yet or not.

The update has a build number J260GDDU2ARJ that is designated to it. In case you’re wondering, Galaxy J2 Core offers entry-level specs i.e 1GB RAM, 8GB storage capacity, Exynos 7570 Quad-core processor which is quite sufficient for an Android Go based phone. Do let us know if you happen to own this device and if you have received the update or not, in the comments section below.

Incidentally, it's the J series that has done well in India so far for Samsung. And such a security update speaks volumes though the lineups are different.
