According to a recent leak, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A01 Core could feature a removable battery. In the era of ultra-thin bezels and shrinking phones, this appears to be a genuine usability win.

A recent leak indicated that the Samsung Galaxy A01e is actually named the Galaxy A01 Core. The name has a very important implication: much like other Samsung Galaxy devices in the Core lineup, such as the Galaxy J2 Core and the Galaxy A2 Core, the Galaxy A01 Core will likely feature a user-removable battery. 

Apart from a convenience that’s been remarkably hard to find in smartphones after 2015, the Galaxy A01 Core appears to be a rather tame device. We’re looking at a Mediatek MT6739WW. This is a budget device feature a measly 4 Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, paired with a PowerVR GE8100, delivering roughly as much performance as the Samsung Galaxy S3

The presence of a 3000 mAh battery on a device with such a low-profile chipset means that the Galaxy A01 Core will likely feature exemplary battery life. If the price is right, the Samsung Galaxy A01 Core could potentially be an excellent burner or secondary phone. The removable battery makes this an even more viable possibility, with a replacement battery extending the device’s lifespan considerably.
