The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) today quietly popped up on the Samsung’s official Vietnamese website. It is a budget smartphone from the company. The Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) has been listed on the site for 3,290,000 VNĐ (Approximately Rs 9,221). It will be made available in Black, Green and Gold colour options (a pink colour variant is expected to be launched in the near future too). There is no information as to when it will be available for purchase and whether or not it will be made available in India.
As for the specifications, the Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) sports a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. It is powered by a quad-core CPU clocked a 1.4GHz alongside 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. It is backed by a 2,600mAh battery which Samsung claims will be able to provide audio playback of 60 hours to its users.
As for the camera, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) features an 8-megapixel primary camera with 1080p video recording capabilities. On the front, the device features a 5-megapixel camera for selfies. The smartphone thankfully retains the 3.5mm audio jack, however, it compromises by providing a micro-USB port for charging and data transfer instead of a USB Type-C port.
Samsung has included a few nice features into the software for the Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) like Dual Messaging Accounts feature which allows users to log into two messaging accounts on the same application and the Private Folder feature that provides users with some additional privacy.
Given its meager specifications and sub-par display resolution in today’s day and age, we aren’t too excited about its prospects, unless of course, it runs the recently announced Android Oreo Go out of the box.
