Samsung has today launched an upgraded version of Galaxy J2 (2016), named Galaxy J2 Pro in India. The J2 Pro comes with “Smart Glow” feature, more RAM, double internal storage and has been priced at 9,890 INR. This handset will be available in Black, White and Silver color options exclusively on Snapdeal.
The Galaxy J2 Pro has a 5 inch HD Super AMOLED display and is powered by 1.5 GHz quad core Spreadtrum SC8830 processor, clubbed with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of inbuilt memory that can be further expanded by up to 32GB with a microSD card.
The J2 Pro packs an 8 MP autofocus rear shooter with LED flashlight and f/2.2 aperture. There is also a 5 MP front facing snapper onboard. It is backed by a 2600mAh battery and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, 3G / HSPA+, EDGE / GPRS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS, Micro USB 2.0 port, dual SIM functionality.
The two primary highlights of Galaxy J2 and J2 Pro are Smart Glow and Turbo Speed Technology. The Smart Glow is a LED notification ring that encircles the rear camera module. It looks attractive and can glow in various user defined colors. TST, on the other hand, depends on pro-active RAM cleaning and reducing the size of system apps to extract better performance out of the mediocre Spreadtrum chipset housed within.
Commenting on the launch, Manu Sharma, Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India, said, “Samsung is constantly in the pursuit of bringing meaningful innovation to consumers. The Galaxy J2 Pro with Turbo Speed Technology is designed to provide superior device performance. Furthermore, the Smart Glow feature is an industry first that not only enables automatic rear camera selfies but also provides a fresh new design element and a host of other utility features.”
