Galaxy J2 Core announced: This is Samsung’s first Android Go device

While this is a pretty low-end device, what makes the unit special is that it will be the firm's first Android Go device although it will ship with the Oreo variant of the operating system rather than the recently released Pie iteration. It's really no surprise that it has conjured up a Go phone of its own - this could even be the first of many.

Following the launch of the flagship Galaxy Note 9 in India, Samsung is getting ready to bring a more affordable smartphone to the market now with the Galaxy A8 Star.

On the front, it boasts 24 MP with F2.0 aperture and thanks to the intuitive camera app, it is capable of capturing bright clear images and good selfies at any light condition - be it day or night.

Though the Samsung Galaxy A8 Star comes with a good camera and handsome design language, it will have a tough time competing with the recently launched Poco F1, that comes with super powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and a massive 4,000mAh battery. It is powered by an octa-core (quad-core 2.2GHz Kryo 260 and quad-core 1.8GHz Kryo 260 CPUs) Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage as well as microSD card support of up to 400GB.

Google has also developed lightweight versions of its core apps for Android Go, including Google Go, Assistant Go, YouTube Go, Gboard, Chrome, Maps Go, Files Go, Gmail Go, and Google Play.

Samsung Canada is selling their Note 9 directly on their website, as well as through Canadian wireless carriers.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 earlier this month and promptly began taking pre-orders.

The device is available for purchase today starting in India and Malaysia.

Unfortunately, the South Korean manufacturer has not revealed pricing, but the handset may cost around INR 7,000 ($99). You can, however, adorn your one remaining wrist with the Galaxy Watch, which is also launching today. Let us know in the comments!
