What you need to know

  • Galaxy A01 Core is Samsung's latest entry-level A series smartphone.
  • The phone sports a 5.3-inch HD+ display, an 8MP rear camera, and a 3,000mAh battery.
  • 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.

Cyber Monday may be over but these Cyber Week deals are still alive

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.
