Several manufacturers have already committed to Google’s Android Go platform, a version of Android that’s optimized for entry-level devices with at most 1GB of RAM. Soon, we might add Samsung to that list.

A smartphone with the model number SM-J260G has been spotted on benchmarking site Geekbench. Serial leaker Roland Quandt‏ of Germany-based site WinFuture says it will be possibly called the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core.

Is this an Android Go phone? Samsung SM-J260G — believed to be the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core — spotted on Geekbench

According to the listing, the handset is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.43GHz and paired with 1GB of RAM. It scored 625 in the single-core test and 1,747 in the multi-core one. Those are consistent with points obtained by basic devices.

So if the Samsung SM-J260G is indeed running Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition), then this should be perfect for those who want to upgrade from feature phones. As we explained before, budget smartphones with this version of Android can, in theory, run smoothly. It saves space wherever it’s needed. It uses less data. And it has the same key security features as Android Oreo.
