Having launched the Galaxy M01 and Galaxy M01s just a couple of weeks back, Samsung has now introduced a much affordable derivative of the abovementioned devices, touting it as the Galaxy M01 Core. It's the most affordable smartphone that Samsung sells in our market.
Given its price, not much should be expected from the Galaxy M01 Core. However, it still boasts a healthy specification list as it comes powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 chipset, paired with up to 2GB of RAM. Moreover, it comes with a 5.3-inch HD+ TFT display with fairly large bezels. In the camera department, the Galaxy M01 Core features an 8MP sensor at the rear, along with an LED flash. At the front, the top bezel houses a 5MP selfie shooter.
In addition, the Galaxy M01 Core comes with up to 32GB of in-built storage, which can be expanded via microSD. The smartphone runs on Android 10 (Go edition) with One UI on top, with India-specific features like Intelligent Inputs and Intelligent Photos. Lastly, it is backed up by a 3,000mAh battery, which can be topped up via a proprietary micro-USB port.
The Samsung Galaxy M01 Core price in India is set at ₹5,499 for the base 1+16GB version going all the way up to ₹6,499 for the 2+32GB version. It will be available from July 29 on Samsung’s retail stores, Samsung Opera House, Samsung.com, and leading online portals in three colours - black, blue, and red.
