Samsung's launched a new budget handset called the Galaxy J2 2017 Edition in India as part of its popular J series of phones. On the storage front, the device gets an onboard capacity of 8GB, which can be further expanded using a microSD card. The smartphone sports a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and 2MP front shooter for selfies.
As for software, the Galaxy J2 2017 Edition comes with the company's signature Ultra Data Saving Mode to save up to 50% of data consumption.
Made with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5.0, the new smartphone has a 6.3-inch QHD screen, the largest screen on a Galaxy Note phone, a dual camera, two 12-megapixel cameras on the back - a dual pixel primary wide-angel sensor with f/1.7 aperture and OIS, and a secondary telephoto lens with f/1.4 aperture and OIS. However, Samsung's first major attempt with the Galaxy S8 has ended not as intended, with reports that the feature can even be fooled using a 2D photo. Recently, Samsung launched its Galaxy Tab A (2017) tablet in India.
Display: The new Galaxy J2 (2017) is a little smaller in size when compared to the 2016 edition J2.
While the pricing of the handset has not been revealed by the official listing, Mumbai-based Mahesh Telecom has reported that the device will come with a price tag of Rs 7,390. As the name suggests, with this feature the users of the phone will be able to save wastage of mobile data and have a seamless browsing experience. Samsung released the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea months earlier. For storage, the device offers 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM (of which 9.7GB is available).
The Galaxy J2 2017 comes with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and do not expect to get any update on this phone as Samsung does not focus on delivering updates to low-end devices.
