Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) smartphone with 4G VoLTE launched at Rs 7390

The company has launched its Galaxy J2 (2017) smartphone with 4G VoLTE support and Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. Sadly, such a world does not exist (though it's easy to understand why in some cases), but at least people who purchased the 2016 Samsung Galaxy J3 (J320A) from AT&T have a significant upgrade waiting for them. Well, Samsung launched the mid-range smartphone back in January 2016, so in just a few months the device will celebrate two years since market release.

The handset comes with a 5.8-inch display sporting a resolution of 2960 by 1440 pixels resolution, a Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 64Gb of internal storage coupled with a microSD card slot.

Samsung Galaxy J2 2017 Edition packs company's Made for India features like Smart Manager and Ultra Data Saving Mode.

Software: J2 (2017) runs on Android OS. The exact version of Android is not specified on the website.

The Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) sports a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and a 2MP front-facing selfie camera.

All of it is backed by a 2000mAh battery that Samsung claims can deliver up to around 9 hours of internet user, 41 hours of playback time and 12 hours of talktime. Be it the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which is priced over $900 or the newly announced Samsung Galaxy J2 which is expected to be priced around $100. The USP of this budget-friendly handset is that it features Ultra Data Saving mode which saves mobile data with great efficiency. Available color options include black and gold.
