Samsung has phased out the Galaxy J series in favor for a streamlined branding as they consolidate all their budget offerings in the Galaxy A-line. But apparently, that’s not entirely the case with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020.
The original Galaxy J2 Core was launched way back in August 2018. In fact, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 is pretty much the same device. But this time, it gets to have 16GB of storage, an upgrade from the 8GB of the previous model.
Other than that, the rest of the specs are pretty much the same. It’s still powered by an Exynos 7570 quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM. The underwhelming hardware was partnered by an efficient Android 8 Oreo Go Edition software to make sure it still runs respectively well.
There’s a compact 5-inch TFT screen on the front, with the throwback thick bezels on top and bottom. On the back, there’s a single 8-megapixel primary camera with no signs of a fingerprint scanner.

All those underwhelming hardware will cost you INR6,300 (~Php4,200) for the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020.
