The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017)

Just a few days ago it was revealed that Samsung was testing its first Android Go smartphone in a number of countries across the globe, although not much was known about the device at the time. Thanks to a newly-leaked spec sheet, however, this changes today.

Confirming previous details, the new device that goes by the model number SM-J260 will offer 1GB of RAM and a quad-core Exynos 7570 processor – this could be a slightly modified version designed to run on Android Go devices specifically. In addition to this, it's now confirmed that 16GB of internal storage is present and will presumably be expandable via microSD. Furthermore, in regards to the camera setup, a rear 8-megapixel camera is included along with a respectable 5-megapixel sensor up front. Now, when it comes to the external aspect, Samsung will once again be using an AMOLED display for the smartphone, with this one sitting at 5-inches in size. This will then be powered by a 2,600mAh battery and backed by Android 8.1 Oreo, falling in line with the Android Go rumors.

 Currently, it’s worth noting that these specs are listed as belonging to the SM-J260F variant of the smartphone that is being tested in numerous European markets at the moment. When it comes to the SM-J260G and SM-J260M models, however, it remains unclear if these will differ slightly or not. In either case, though, it shouldn’t be too long before the South Korean giant officially announces the smartphone.

Unlike most of Samsung’s entry-level Android devices that make use of the heavily customized Samsung Experience UI, this new device looks set to ship with a stripped back version of stock Android 8.1 Oreo. If accurate, this could mean significant improvements to performance and could pave the way for more stock Android phones from Samsung in the future.

A lot of those phone's screens are on par with the S9's screen, so I don't know why you're even mentioning them in the first place.

No, Amoled screens are NOT far superior than LCD screens, not anymore. Modern LCD screens have become so great over the years and now there is no any noticeable difference at all.

How are updates to Android Go phones handled? Does the manufacturer post updates, or does Google push the updates?
