Samsung Galaxy J2 Core (2020)’s design is reminiscing of Apple the original J2 Core from 2018, August. There are no subtle differences between the design language of the two. It comes with a soft home button on a vibrant display to give you a seamless experience. The build is plastic and the phone’s dimensions are 143.4 x 72.1 x 8.9 mm. It weighs about 154 g.

Hardware and Camera

The Galaxy J2 Core (2020) is powered by Exynos 7570 Quad (14 nm). It comes with Android Oreo (Go edition) that delivers a great performance. Compared to the original J2 Core, the new J2 Core (2020) has faster performance thanks to Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition). But still, Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition) is quite out of date in 2020. It is the idea of a Samsung phone with Android Oreo (Go edition) that we appreciate.
