Samsung Mobile have launched a new device dubbed Galaxy J2 (2017). It is a mid-range device with cool specs. It is targeted for India Market, but knowing Samsung, it could spread out to other countries in due time.
Galaxy J2 features a 4.7-inch display, runs on stock Android 7.0 Nougat, 4G LTE and is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM, quite low considering that other smartphone vendors are unveiling phones with bigger RAM, maybe that’s why it is referred to as a budget device.
Meanwhile, Samsung adopted a Super AMOLED display technology on the Galaxy J2 which is uncommon to most Smartphones from the South Korean company. But there is no fingerprint scanner available on the phone. Below are the rest of the specifications of the device.
