In terms of cameras, the leak suggests it would be an 8MP affair on the rear, and 5MP on the front.

Originally, SamMobile sources said the device, under the model name SM-J260G, was being tested in “dozens” of markets around the world, with the UK amongst them.

According to the report, the company is “testing the waters” for the release of an affordable phone running the lightweight version of the Android Oreo 8.1 operating system.

Android Go was announced back at MWC 2018 back in February. It comes loaded with lightweight Google apps like YouTube and Chrome. There’s also a dedicated version of the Play Store where developers can create optimised versions of their apps.

As well as providing access to Google’s prime tools for those in developing nations, the operating system has also been spied for users seeking affordable weekend phones.
