Samsung Galaxy J2 2018 With Snapdragon 425 and AMOLED Display Launched At Rs. 8,190
Samsung has today launched its entry-level Galaxy J2 in India priced at Rs. 8,190. Like all other J2 models that precede it, this one too has humble hardware and is meant for first time buyers who value Samsung branding.
The Samung Galaxy J2 2018 comes with a 5-inch (16:9) display with qHD resolution. As modest as that may seem, Samsung is still using an AMOLED panel on this budget offering. The handset is powered by Snapdragon 425 octa-core processor paired with 2GB RAM and just 16GB of storage. The phone accepts microSD card storage as well ( up to 256GB).
The software running on the phone is Android Nougat based experience UI. The phone comes with Samsung Mall integrated, a new India-centric J-series feature that debuted with Galaxy On7 Prime. Samsung Mall basically uses AI to integrate products from different stores in one place.
For photography, the handset has 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front camera with LED flash. Other features include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and 2650mAh battery.
“Galaxy J2 2018 reiterates Samsung’s commitment towards meaningful innovations that delight our customers. For this device, we focussed on two trends amongst Indian youth – growth of online shopping and high usage of Social media platforms. Samsung Mall uses artificial intelligence to revolutionise the way customers shop online with visual search. For avid social media users, Samsung’s proprietary ‘Move to Memory Card’ feature is an advanced memory management solution that de-clutters the internal memory, thereby enhancing the smartphone experience.” Sumit Walia, Director, Mobile business, Samsung India, said.
Samsung Galaxy J2 2018 will be available in Gold, Black, and Pink color options starting from April 27. Launch offers include instant cashback of Rs.2750 for Jio users in the form of MyJio account vouchers on recharging with Rs 198 or Rs 299 plan. Jio users will also get an extra 10GB of 4G data on every recharge for the next 10 recharges.
