Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) budget smartphone launched with Android Nougat


Samsung has quietly launched a new Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) as per the company’s official Vietnamese website. The budget smartphone had its specifications leaked last month, while images appeared a few days ago, both of which have now been confirmed. The Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) has been updated since the previous Galaxy J2 Pro back in 2016 and highlights a Super AMOLED display and Android 7.0 Nougat, among other things.

The Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) sports a 5-inch Super AMOLED qHD (540×960) display and is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1.5GB of RAM. This is interesting considering the original Galaxy J2 Pro came with 2GB of RAM. The handset is offered with 16GB of inbuilt storage, which is expandable via a microSD card slot.

The dual-SIM handset sports an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor, both of which support LED flash. As mentioned, the Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) runs Android 7.0 Nougat and houses a 2600mAh removable battery. The handset measures 143.8×72.3×8.4mm and weighs around 153 grams.

Connectivity options on board include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz, Bluetooth 4.2, LTE, 3.5mm headphone jack and micro-USB port, among others. The Galaxy J2 Pro (2018), however, does not come with NFC or a fingerprint sensor, which is quite disappointing. The smartphone has been priced in Vietnam at VND 3,290,000 (approx Rs 9,200) and will be available in Black, Blue and Gold colour options. There is no word yet on whether the smartphone will make it to India, but chances are that it might since the company did bring the original Galaxy J2 Pro to the country at Rs 9,900.
