Within the last few months, Samsung has launched three phones in India that costs less than INR10,000. The last of them all is the Samsung Galaxy M01 Core, which is tagged as the cheapest Samsung phone in India at the moment. It is an Android Go edition phone, and it is quite different from the Galaxy M01 and Galaxy M01s. You will find the Galaxy M01 Core price and full specification right in this article.
Samsung Galaxy M01 Core Features
The Samsung Galaxy M01 Core comes with a 5.3-inch screen, compared to the 5.7-inch on the vanilla M01 and 6.2-inch on the M01s. The screen has 720p+ resolution, which is perfect in this case as it works out to 277 ppi pixel density.. Also, previous Core models had sub-HD screens, so again, not bad for the cheapest phone of the family.
The other major difference between the Samsung Galaxy M01 Core and the previous models is the chipset – a MediaTek MT6739 with a quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU and Mali-T760 MP2 GPU. That is not a lot of power, even compared to its siblings, which at least got octa-core processors.
Another downside feature of the Galaxy M01 Core is the 1GB RAM which is paired with 16B storage. Android Go Edition works better with more memory, so there is second version of the phone with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. Both versions has triple card slots which accommodates two nano SIMs and a microSD.
The Samsung Galaxy M01 Core comes with a 3000mAh battery, which sounds quite decent for its size (both of its siblings have 4000mAh batteries). However, you can stretch the battery life by turning on the Maximum Power Saving Mode.
The Galaxy M01 Core lacks a teardrop notch, but instead it comes with classic bezels. The front-facing camera has a 5MP sensor while the back camera shoots 8MP photos and 1080p videos. The Intelligent Photos feature detects similar shots and suggests which one is the best to keep while removing the rest to free up space.
The Galaxy M01 Core is an LTE phone, it also supports 2.4GHz Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 5.0. GPS and GLONASS are supported for positioning, NFC is not available. Wired connections are available through the micro USB port and the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Samsung Galaxy M01 Core Price and Release Date
The Samsung Galaxy M01 Core price for the 1/16GB version is INR5,500, while the 2/32GB version costs INR6,500. The phone will be offered in black, blue, and red colors. The Galaxy M01 Core release date is slated for July 29, 2020 ( which is today), and it will be available for purchase online at the Samsung Opera House, and Samsung retail stores.
