Under the hood, we get the octa-core Unisoc SC9863A paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that is expandable to 1TB via a microSD card slot. The Unisoc SC9863A also powers several other budget smartphones like Realme Narzo 50i, Nokia C30, and Infinix Smart 6. The phone looks similar to Samsung Galaxy A03 that was launched last month.
Since it is a toned-down version, the Galaxy A03 Core features a single 8-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture for bright photos. Up front, we get a 5-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling.
The Galaxy A03 Core runs on the latest Android 11 Go OS that is designed for phones with low RAM configuration. You get custom apps optimised for Android Go 11 that is claimed to offer 20 percent faster performance compared to its predecessor Android 10 Go. Android 11 Go also promises better safety with its new Safe Folder feature that safeguards all that you want via encrypted PIN and pattern. (Image Credit: Samsung)
Other notable features of the Samsung Galaxy A03 Core include a 5,000mAh battery, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with a 2.4GHz band, Bluetooth v4.2, a 3.5mm audio jack, GPS, and GLONASS. Since it is a budget-oriented smartphone, the design aspect is pretty standard, and the phone measures 164.2×75.9×9.1mm and weighs 211 grams.
The Samsung Galaxy A03 Core is available to purchase via the official Samsung e-store and partner retailers. The company is offering the phone in two classic colours – Black and Blue.
