Samsung released a budget phone that goes by the name Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020. It is obviously an upgrade (a little) or per se rebranding from its predecessor Samsung Galaxy J2 Core released in 2018.
Samsung is obviously after every customer. I mean they are ready to manufacture devices that suit every class of people. Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 is obviously for those that are on a tight budget and don’t want more from a smartphone. These are the type of people that care more about calls and check messages on their Whtsaap or messenger and don’t care about the camera, beautiful design, and performance.

- Memory: 1 GB RAM | 16 GB ROM.

The device comes with an 8 MP (f/2.2) main sensor and a 5 MP (f/2.2) sensor for selfies.
The phone is equipped with 5.0-inch PLS TFT screen (approx 66.7% screen-to-body ratio) with 540 x 960 pixels resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio.
When it comes to the performance specs of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020, it packs Exynos 7570 chipset with 1 GB RAM and 16 GB ROM (Can be upgraded with an sd card). Performance is pretty good for running apps like WhatsApp, Facebook lite, and other lightweight apps that don’t require much of the processor. Trust me you’ll be disappointed when you try using apps like the original Facebook or even do multi-tasking.
The smartphone comes with a plastic body and a single camera aligned vertically on the back with the LED flashlight. The screen has a tremendous amount of bezel on the top and bottom.
Other things to mention are the micro-USB 2.0 and the 3.5 mm headphones jack plus microphone at the bottom. You will find the power on the right edge and the volume buttons on the left. It’ll be available in the colors Black, Gold, and Blue
Finally, the device is fueled by a 2,600mAh Removable Li-Ion battery.
