The Galaxy A series continues to introduce South Africa to budget devices that offer outstanding value


JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 21 May, 2019 – Designed to offer flagship features at an affordable price, the Galaxy A Series offers unprecedented value. The Galaxy A2 Core adds to this offering in another welcome way, through an engaging device that will undoubtedly help more South Africans experience cutting edge technology, at a price that is surprisingly accessible to a wider cross-section of the population.


“Whether for first-time mobile users or value-seekers we focussed on the needs of the local market and have researched the unique preferences to bring the flagship experience to a broader audience, through the A Series. The Galaxy A2 Core is sure to delight the many people who could not previously own the incredible features with this device,” said Justin Hume, Director: Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa.


This is a device where design really shines – a worthy successor to the Galaxy J2, that was launched last year. The Galaxy A2 Core has a vivid 5.0” qHD display to offer large screen coverage for a more immersive viewing experience. You can also choose from a variety of eye-catching colour options with a glossy back that really stands out. The device is powered by an octa-core Samsung Exynos 7870 processor and has 1GB of RAM, which translates into more storage than would be expected for a device in its price range. To add to the performance, it runs Android 9.0 Pie (Go edition) and is powered by a 2,600mAh battery. The 5-megapixel camera on the rear includes autofocus and the 5-megapixel camera on the front works seamlessly for selfies. Clearly, the Galaxy A2 Core has enough features to satisfy those who want a great smartphone experience at a price well within budget.


The recommended Retail Price for Samsung Galaxy A2 Core is R1299.
