It was reported a month ago that Samsung will be coming out with its second Android Go smartphone after last year’s Galaxy J2 Core. Now, not only do we have a pretty good idea of what it will be called, we also have an alleged render of the phone to show you, courtesy of veteran leakster Evan Blass.

The Korean manufacturer’s next Android Go handset, with the model number SM-A260F, is said to be the Samsung Galaxy A2 Core. While its pricing and release details have yet to be confirmed, it may come in black and blue colors based on the render posted by the tipster.

Hello, Samsung Galaxy A2 Core?

The phone is likely made of plastic and has thick bezels on the front, leaving plenty of room for the front-facing camera, earpiece, and Samsung logo on the chin. The display is rumored to be 5 inches, with a resolution of 960 x 540 and a traditional aspect ratio of 16:9.

Further down, it looks like the Galaxy A2 Core will include a headphone jack next to the charging port. A single rear-facing camera is located around the back, and below the camera lies a speaker for playing audio without a pair of headphones.

Earlier leaks suggested the device will run Android 9.0 Pie Go edition on a 14-nanometer Exynos 7870 processor with eight Cortex-A53 cores and Mali-T830 MP1 graphics. The processor will probably be accompanied by 512MB or 1GB RAM. That isn’t surprising, considering it is an entry-level phone — although the octa-core Exynos 7870 is a lot more powerful than what we’re used to seeing in the Android Go line.

The lock screen shows a March 22 date, suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy A2 Core could launch next week. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything regarding an official launch.
