No doubt Samsung is the most significant mobile maker giant in the world. The key to this massive success is not only building great flagship phones; but the way it continues to give the market the solid smartphones throughout the entire lineup. The lately announced Samsung Galaxy A8 series have two excellent mid-range phones; offering stunning flagship design with the standard specs. Whereas, the Galaxy J series is dedicated for the budget-friendly handset on the spectrum and is popularly emerging in markets like India. Now we have got our first look at the entirely new entry into the Galaxy J family; the Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018). Let’s have a look at the first Galaxy J2 (2018) leak.
Perversely, for those users, who were expecting a redesign from last year’s Samsung Galaxy J2; the design looks kinda familiar from the Galaxy J2 (2018) leak. The Galaxy J2 has fairly large bezels on both the sides of the screen; as well as on top and bottom of it. This time around, the screen itself marks a bump up in size from 4.7 inches to 5 inches. While a larger display might sound transcendent; Samsung held the same 960 x 540 resolution, which lowers the pixel density to 234 PPI. Ouch.
The rest of the specifications are quite standard for entry-level phones. It sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage. The battery size is 2,600 mAh, which mixed with the low-resolution Super AMOLED display, should give adequate battery life.
According to Galaxy J2 (2018) leak, the back of the phone houses an 8 MP primary camera, while the front-facing shooter comes in at 5 MP. Both cameras have a dedicated flash— a nice bonus on a cheaper device like this. If you were expecting Android Oreo, brace yourself to be disappointed— the Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018) would launch with Android 7.1.1 Nougat instead.
All of this can be yours for the low price of $135. While that sounds kinda pocket-friendly, keep in mind that companies like Xiaomi sell devices for approximately $100 in countries like India. It’ll be interesting to see if the Galaxy J2 (2018) can put Samsung back out in front, of Xiaomi will continue to surge.
