The South Korean giant has unveiled the Galaxy A03 Core, a cheap smartphone that it positions within what we can consider as an inexpensive low-end range, and that adopts a very simple and non-fanciful design that makes it clear, from the beginning, its category in the current market. In case you have problems locating it, I remind you that a step is placed below the Galaxy A03s.
The front shows an all screen format with quite sharp edges. In the upper area, there is a front camera integrated in the classic notch shaped like a drop of water, and on the back we have a polycarbonate (plastic) finish that houses a single camera. Below it we have the LED flash that will allow us to take pictures when the ambient lighting is low or null.
Nothing particularly flashy, but it is something perfectly understandable, since the Galaxy A03 Core prioritizes price and hardware over design and quality of finishes. This can be seen in everything we have seen externally, and that is that we find all the classic guidelines that are typical of low-cost smartphones. Internally, however, Samsung has put together a fairly capable setup, as we’ll see below.
Galaxy A03 Core Specifications
The Galaxy A03 Core mounts a 6.5-inch LCD-type screen with HD + resolution, which should translate into 1,600 x 720 pixels. The front camera is 5 MP, which means that we can enjoy an acceptable experience making video calls and taking “selfies”, while at the rear we have a single 8 MP sensor accompanied by an LED flash.
To bring this smartphone to life, Samsung has used a chip Unisoc SC9863A, which mounts an eight-core CPU divided into two blocks. The first is quad-core and runs at 1.6 GHz, and the second is made up of the other four cores, but they run at 1.2 GHz. All of those cores use the Cortex-A55 architecture. The GPU that integrates this chip is a PowerVR GE8322.
RAM memory amounts to 2 GB, a somewhat adjusted figure that is certainly far from the levels recommended today to run Android with full fluency (4 GB of RAM), but which should be enough to enjoy a good user experience at a basic level. The storage capacity of the Galaxy A03 Core amounts to 32 GB, and it comes with a 5,000 mAh battery. This is undoubtedly one of its most interesting sections, since it should be more than enough to guarantee a long autonomy.
For the rest, the Galaxy A03 Core comes with two nano SIM card slots, allows you to use a microSD card as a storage unit, and will be available in blue and black. The official sale price has not transpired, but most likely it will end up hovering between 80 and 100 euros.
