The Samsung "Galaxy A01e" is now the Galaxy A01 Core: new leak
Samsung launched a Galaxy A0x-line phone for the first time in 2020. Its name alone suggests that it is intended to appeal to the extreme budget end of the mobile device market. However, there is also evidence that the OEM is not willing to stop at this point of the cost-effective spectrum. This growing body of leaks point to a second, similar device currently known as the SM-A013.
This phone has been projected to launch as the Galaxy A01e. However, according to its new Bluetooth SIG certification, Samsung has come up with a new-ish name for the device: Galaxy A01 Core. This moniker resonates with that of One UI Core, the stripped-down form of Samsung's OS skin for its less powerful phones.
The now-clearly upcoming A01 Core may indeed be in need of the same: its leaks suggest that it has a markedly elderly MediaTek processor clocked at 1.5GHz and just 1GB of RAM, yet still runs Android 10. Its new documentation also indicates it gets an up-to-date Bluetooth standard, at least.
Not much else is known for sure about this impending device, although it is likely to have the same battery capacity as the Galaxy A01 proper. Therefore, tracking its progress until its starting price is revealed may be worthwhile indeed.
