Samsung has announced their first ever Android Go device based on Android Oreo in India. The phone named Galaxy J2 Core will feature Google’s lightweight Android Ore Go version which is an OS meant for low-level entry devices. However Samsung has also added their skin on top of the Android Go, but still, Android Go has the same similarities across the platforms. The only difference is the appearance of app icons the Samsung way.
Android GO is a stock android which is usually lightweight and meant for low memory and less powerful devices. Go usually features stripped down apps such as YT and Google with a little compromise on app functionality to justify the low storage.
Major features on Android Go include data saver, an optimized system for low storage and memory and also lite apps. The device will go on sale today in India and Malaysia, but the global rollout will also be available soon. Regarding the price, it’s not yet clear though it should be less than Ksh 10,000 ($100) considering the selling price of its parent Galaxy J2.
