Samsung just introduced the new Samsung Galaxy J2 Core (2020) in India. The 2018 model has fewer specs and the new 2020 model also quite restrictive. The one saving grace of the phone is that it runs Android Go Edition where both OS and apps are designed to squeeze the most out of even low-end hardware.
