Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy J2 specifications


Last updated: July 7th, 2015 at 10:57 UTC+02:00

Samsung is steadily expanding its Galaxy J series of enty-level smartphones. It officially announced the Galaxy J1 and the Galaxy J1 4G earlier this year, and is already working on the Galaxy J1 Ace and Galaxy J1 pop. Both these devices appear to be slightly different variants of the Galaxy J1. Now, we’ve been able to source some exclusive information regarding the next smartphone in the Galaxy J series, the Galaxy J2.

The Galaxy J2 (SM-J200F) will feature a 4.5-inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, an Exynos 3475 SoC with a quad-core 32-bit CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1.5GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. It will also feature a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. This device will be 136 mm tall, 69 mm wide, and 8.3 mm thin, and will feature a 2,000 mAh battery. Just like most of the smartphones released recently, the Galaxy J2 will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box.

The company released the Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7 last month, and both the devices feature high-resolution front-facing cameras that are accompanied by an LED flash, which helps in capturing better selfies in low-light conditions. The Galaxy J1’s front camera was considerably better than the rest of its hardware, though that doesn’t seem to be the case with the Galaxy J2, which doesn’t seem to be getting an upgrade in the front camera’s megapixel count.

We have no word on when the Galaxy J2 will be officially announced. India will likely be the first market to get the device, with a couple of other emerging smartphone markets to follow later.
