Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 Unveiled

Samsung has just unveiled a revamped version of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core in India. The device still goes by the same name, but with a 2020 tag. As you know, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core was originally launched in 2018 as a low budget device running on Android Go edition optimized for low end hardware. Then, if you're wondering what modifications has been made and what the 2020 version has in store, evidently there isn't much to be excited about, as the device has almost the same specifications as its predecessor. With the same 2600 mAh battery (which is also removable) capacity, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 is also powered by Samsung's Exynos 7570 Quad (14 nm), plus a 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 and a Mali-T720. It still also runs on Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition) which is rather disappointing, don't you think? The Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 sports a 5 inch LCD display with a 540 x 960px resolution. The front build is made of glass although this time around it isn't certain if it also has the Gorilla Glass protection. Also we can still see a lack of notch on the top of the screen which shows the old fashioned bezels encircling the front build. When it comes to the camera setup, just like the original J2 Core, the 2020 version is equipped with a 5mp selfie camera and an 8mp sensor and auto focus lens on the rear that can record 1080p video at 30fps. However, with the storage of this year's version, you get 16GB in built capacity with a dedicated microUSB slot that can accommodate up to 256GB. And as for the memory, which apparently is another disappointing feature, Samsung still maintains the 1GB RAM capacity. As you can see, there isn't much of anything quite remarkable about the modification, however you can take your time to view the full specifications here.

Gallery Go – A simplified version for Google photos

Yesterday, Google launched a new Go App - Gallery Go - a lightweight and offline version of Google photos for people who use or can only afford low budget smartphones that run on less powerful hardware, low RAM and limited internet connection; Google revealed that Gallery Go is a light and fast gallery app designed to work offline and uses machine learning to automatically organize photos on your Android Go phone. Much like Google Photos, Gallery Go comes with features that lets you find, edit, manage and organize photos, without connecting to the internet. Images on the app are also synced and displayed in chronological order; and the interface has separate category tabs for screenshots, documents and videos as well as content-based groupings. The App is only 10mb in size and supports SD cards so you can manage and share photos without slowing down your phone. Gallery Go is available today on Google Play for Android devices running version 8.1 (Oreo) or higher and will come pre-installed as the gallery app on two local Android Go phones Itel S15 and Itel A55 and also in future Android Go edition phones.
