Samsung’s New Budget Phone, Galaxy J2 (2018) Launched in India.

News, Samsung

Samsung has launched an updated version of the previous entry level smartphon, the Galaxy J2, in India at ₹8190. Despite the removal of the Pro tag from the phone’s name, the Indian version of the 2018 Galaxy J2 is better equipped in one key area: It has 2GB of RAM as opposed to 1.5GB of RAM on the J2 Pro (2018).

Samsung boasts this phone as a device equpiied with apps to make online shopping easier. It comes with an app called Samsung    Mall, an India-exclusive app that Samsung recently launched to enable users to find new products through visual search (by using the camera for shooting pictures of a related product) and buying products from various online stores from a single location. For the social media aspect, Samsung says the phone allows users to move data to the external memory.

We’re not sure how that helps social media fanatics, but the company says it’s a proprietary feature, so we’re guessing it does more than just move installed apps to the external storage.

The Galaxy J2 (2018) has got 2 GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a microSD slot, and a 2,600 mAh battery, a 5-inch qHD (960×540 pixels) Super AMOLED display and a quad-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.4GHz.

The Galaxy J2 (2018) will be available in gold, black, and pink, and those on the Jio network will receive a Rs. 2,750 cashback in their My Jio account on a recharge of the Rs. 198 or Rs. 299 data plans, along with 10GB of extra data on 10 subsequent recharges.
