Samsung Galaxy J2 Core Features

Galaxy J2 Core is an entry-level smartphone that was announced and released in August 2018. Designed to be budget-friendly, it offers essential features suitable for basic smartphone users or those looking for a simple, no-frills device.


Galaxy J2 Core is notable for being one of Samsung’s first Android Go devices, running on a streamlined version of Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition).

This edition is optimized for lower-end hardware, ensuring smoother performance. The phone features a modest 5.0-inch PLS LCD display, an 8 MP main camera, and a 5 MP selfie camera.


J2 Core comes with a 5.0-inch PLS LCD display, offering a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. This results in a pixel density of about 220 PPI.

The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, although the specific version is unspecified. The display provides adequate clarity and color reproduction for basic tasks and media consumption.


For photography, the J2 Core is equipped with an 8 MP rear camera with an f/2.2 aperture. It includes features like LED flash, HDR, and panorama.

The camera is capable of recording 1080p videos at 30fps. The front-facing camera is a 5 MP sensor, also with an f/2.2 aperture, suitable for selfies and video calls.


The device supports GSM, HSPA, and LTE networks. It includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, GLONASS, and BDS for navigation.

It lacks NFC capabilities. For wired connections, it uses a micro USB 2.0 port with OTG support.


Powered by the Exynos 7570 Quad chipset and a quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, the Galaxy J2 Core is designed for basic performance needs.

It comes with the Mali-T720 GPU, which is adequate for low to moderate graphics requirements.


The phone has a plastic body and frame, measuring 143.4 x 72.1 x 8.9 mm and weighing 154 g. It features a Dual SIM (Micro-SIM, dual stand-by) setup, catering to users who require two phone numbers.


Samsung offers the Galaxy J2 Core in two storage variants: 8GB with 1GB RAM and 16GB with 1GB RAM. It also includes a dedicated microSDXC card slot for storage expansion, which is a crucial feature for users needing more space.


The device is powered by a removable Li-Ion 2600 mAh battery. While not particularly large by modern standards, the battery capacity is sufficient for the phone’s hardware and software optimization.

Samsung Galaxy J2 Core is a straightforward, budget-friendly smartphone that covers the essentials. It’s an ideal choice for first-time smartphone users, children, or anyone needing a simple secondary device.
