Samsung Announces the Budget 4G Galaxy J2 Smartphone

The budget oriented Galaxy J family now boasts the Galaxy J2 in the line-up. The new affordable handset was announced with the budget conscious users in mind.

The Galaxy J2 features a 4.7-inch AMOLED display with a 960×540 resolution. The display is surrounded by the normal budget-oriented design of Samsung devices. The rear of the device does bring some improvements with faux leather and a metallic looking sides, similar to what was seen in the Galaxy S5.

The phone is clearly aimed to at the lower-end spectrum of the mobile world. Galaxy J2 comes with a 1.3GHz quad-core Exynos 3475 chipset coupled with 1GB of RAM. The internal storage comes in at 8GB which can be expanded via a microSD card of up to 128GB in size. The phone is powered by an adequate 2,000mAh battery. The camera department features a 5MP shooter at the back and a 2MP front facing camera.

Galaxy J2 aims to bring 4G to the masses and focuses on internet connectivity. The phone comes with dual-4G support. A software feature incorporated by Samsung is the Ultra Data Saving Mode powered by Opera. This feature boasts up to 50 percent data savings when downloading videos, 40 percent while using social networks and 30 percent less data when browsing the web. The phone comes with 4G but the data saving features would be greatly appreciated by the users, something which was so far only seen in smartphones by Xiaomi.

  • ye its better then J1 which only have dual core processor and 512 Ram looking forward to buy it but we see many phone which price in india is 7 or 8k like huawei holly (3c lite) price in india here landed at 18k and lenovo a6000 price in india 7k here 17900 huawei and lenovo two loot company selling at higher rate in pak hopefully samsung will not do what their are doing

      • Distributors here are just selling phones at bloated prices and they do not offer any hardware warranty just software one. Lol ..they still don’t guarantee any data recovery tho. Pakistanis are crazy for Samsung, they will put 600 USD out for a phone from Samsung which is similar to a 300 USD meizu or xiaomi phone. Just wait and see they will price this around 20k as they want to look different from others.

  • Can anyone confirm the launching dates in Pakistan or Dubai??? J2 isn’t available yet in both countries.. i am also bit confused between lenovo P70 and samsung J2..
