During the last weeks there has been talk of the entry of Samsung in the list of brands with Android Go terminals. To refresh the memory, Android Go is a Google program focused on terminals with very basic specifications. Their weapons are light applications that run better on simple mobiles.
Samsung plans would be very different from what we have seen so far in other Android Go. As you can see in the photos of the device published by SamMobile, Samsung’s Android Go will feature the Samsung Experience interface, not Android stock. Yes, Android Go apps that will be present. It’s something.
Only Samsung could take out an Android Go with customization
Who wants Android stock when there is Samsung Experience? It seems that nobody, at least inside Samsung. The rumored Android Go of the company has posed for the camera in an exclusive of SamMobile and, to everyone’s surprise, the mobile does not carry Android stock as often happens in Android Go.
We say ‘usually’ because in reality Android Go does not force the interface to be pure (without personalization), although it is something that is expected in a mobile with such basic specifications that it needs special apps to work well.
In the images you can clearly see how the device comes with the usual personalization of Samsung and own apps such as Messages, Gallery or Smart Manager, which seems to act as storage manager and not Files Go as in other Android Go. There is also the customization of the quick settings and the lower navigation bar with the known style of the brand layer.
The difference is that here the Google apps that are pre-installed are the Go editions, that is, lighter versions so that, as we said, the experience is more fluid. Now it remains to see if Samsung Experience has also been lightened to respect that experience.
The images also reveal that the mobile will come out of series with Android 8.1 Oreo and that its screen will not have an elongated format, but it will keep the classic 16: 9. According to rumors, the terminal will be called Samsung Galaxy J2 Core and, although there is currently no date for its release, it seems that it will not take long given the level of leaks.
