Samsung’s newest device is unfortunately a bit of a disappointment, though it doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise. The new Samsung Galaxy A01 Core is an entry-level handset with very basic specifications and Android GO support.
There’s a 5.3-inch PLS LCD display, along with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. It’s powered by the 3 year old Mediatek MT6739 chipset, paired with 1GB of RAM and 16/32GB of internal storage. They’re paltry specs for a 2020 device, even with Android GO.

We’ve also got a 5MP selfie shooter and a single 8MP camera on the back of the device. There’s at least a decently sized 3,000mAh battery, but it’s little consolation for how weak the device is overall.
The Galaxy A01 Core comes in blue, black and red, and is priced at IDR 1,099,000 ($74). It’s a very low-end device, but we can’t really justify the purchase here when other, much better devices are available at only slightly higher prices.
