Samsung is no longer launching as many smartphone models
yearly as it did some time ago, but the company is still offering handsets for
all budgets. And we don’t think this will change anytime soon.
While working on high-end phones like the Galaxy S9, or on
mid-range models like the Galaxy A (2018) series, Samsung is also getting ready
to release new low-end handsets. One of the company’s upcoming low-end phones should
be the Galaxy J2 Pro (2018).
Thanks to a set of leaked renders, we can already take a
look at the design of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018). According to 91mobiles,
the new handset measures around 143.1 x 72.2 x 8.6 mm, and should sport a display
of around 5 inches (possibly with 720 x 1280 pixels). The device seems to look
a bit more elegant than previous low-en Samsung phones, although it’s still
made out of plastic.
As previously reported, the Galaxy J2 (2018) should be
powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor aided by 1.5 GB or 2 GB of RAM.
The handset might be announced and launched in early 2018, likely for under $150, and we hope it’ll
run Android 8 Oreo out of the box.
While Samsung usually releases its Galaxy J phones only in
Asia, Latin America, or Europe, the Galaxy J2 (2018) could be available in the
some point, though maybe not in an official way.
