Samsung’s preparing to launch the Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) in Africa


Last updated: November 8th, 2017 at 13:28 UTC+01:00

Samsung is preparing to release the upcoming Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) in Africa, according to a prematurely-published support page on its website. The handset, which was recently spotted on the Federal Communications Commission’s online database, is expected to feature near-identical internals to the Galaxy J2 (2016).

According to the accompanying documentation, the biggest difference between the Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) and the Galaxy J2 (2016) is that it ships with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. Like the latter, it should come with a 5-inch Super AMOLED display and a 1.5GHz Spreadtrum processor.

Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) should ship running Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Other notable specifications include an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 5-MP front-facing shooter and a 2,600mAh battery. The Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) should also ship running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but is thought to be eligible for the Android 7.0 Nougat update; however, there’s no guarantee it’ll receive it.
