- Galaxy A01 Core is Samsung's latest entry-level A series smartphone.

- It runs Android 10 (Go Edition) out of the box.
Samsung has quietly expanded its lineup of entry-level phones with the launch of the Galaxy A01 Core. The latest addition to Samsung's Galaxy A series is aimed at first-time smartphone buyers and runs Android 10 (Go Edition).
Similar to most other Android Go phones, the Galaxy A01 Core doesn't offer impressive tech specs. You get a relatively small 5.3-inch display with HD+ resolution and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Powering the phone is MediaTek's MT6739 quad-core chipset, which came out in 2017.
The Galaxy A01 Core has a single 8MP camera on the back, while on the front is a 5MP camera for selfies. Keeping the lights on is a 3,000mAh battery, which is claimed to provide up to 17 hours of talk time on 4G. Unsurprisingly, however, the Galaxy A01 Core doesn't include a USB Type-C port and lacks fast charging support as well.
Samsung Galaxy A01 Core is currently available only in Indonesia, where it has been priced at IDR 1,099,000 ($75). In the coming weeks, however, the phone is likely to make its way to a few other markets.
