As per a report by Sammobile, Samsung will now be joining Google’s Android Go program. A new benchmark listing almost confirms a device named Samsung SM-J260G based on the toned-down operating system.

The report also suggests that the phone is being tested for the Indian sub-continent, which is seen as a hot market for budget phones. The countries in the region include India and neighbours — Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal.

The device was benchmarked with 1GB of RAM and Android 8.1 Oreo with a processor codenamed Universal7570_Go. This is not the first time the smartphone has made its appearance, previous rumours revealed similar details suggesting that the name would be Galaxy J2 Core.
