Although Samsung is releasing more and more expensive and more powerful smartphones, it also does not forget about less demanding and less affluent customers. For such customers, the manufacturer is preparing a new proposal – the Galaxy J2 2018 model.
But before proceeding to the matter, one question must be clarified. Recently there have been reports that Samsung is working on the Galaxy J2 Pro 2018 model, but it turns out that there will not be such a device – the Galaxy J2 2018 will appear on the market. And so, let’s see what the device offers us.
This smartphone will be clearly weaker than the Galaxy J2 Pro, which has been rumored for so long. The smartphone will be equipped with a display Super AMOLED with a diagonal of 5 inches, a ratio of 16: 9 and a resolution of qHD, that is 960 × 540 pixels, and the density of pixels on this display is only 220 ppi. It’s a little sad that Samsung still uses such screens – I expected at least HD resolution (1280 × 720, with a density of 294 ppi).
The heart of the Galaxy J2 2018 should be four Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 1.4 GHz (4x ARM Cortex-A53, 28-nm) graphics processor with Adreno 308. The smartphone will also offer 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory with expandability using a microSD card. In addition, it is also equipped with a main camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels, a front camera at 5 megapixels (near both lenses you’ll also find a flash diode) and Dual SIM (standby, not hybrid).
The connection to the Galaxy J2 2018 will be provided by the following modules: Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, LTE Cat. 4 (download up to 150 Mbps, transmission up to 50 Mbps) and GPS, connectors: for headphones 3,5 and microUSB. The smartphone will work under the operating system Android 7.1.1 Nougat with the Samsung Experience interface. Energy for his work he will provide a battery capacity of 2600 mAh. The thickness of the case is 8 mm, and the weight of the whole device is 153 grams.
According to the source, the Samsung Galaxy J2 2018 will cost about 115 euros. In our country it can be a little more expensive, because of taxes.
