If accurate, the Samsung Android Go phone will come with a 5-inch Super AMOLED display (not sure yet of the resolution), 1.4GHz quad-core Samsung-made Exynos 7570 processor and 1GB of RAM.
The phone will have 16GB of on-board storage and come with Android 8.1 Oreo with the Android Go assurance that there will be no Samsung bloatware on top.
The rear camera is claimed to be 8-megapixels, while the front is said to be 5-megapixels.
A 2,600mAh battery should provide plenty of charge life in the other specs are correct.
The other variants of the phone spotted online - SM-J260G and SM-J260M - are thought to have the exact same specs but aimed for different regions.
We'll let you know if and when we find out more.
