Samsung continues to bolster their already robust entry-level and mid-range offerings in India, and took the wraps off of the new Galaxy J2 Pro earlier today. If that name sounds familiar, that’s because it was only a few weeks ago that Samsung unveiled the Galaxy J2 (2016) and Galaxy J Max in the country, and have now followed that up with the Pro iteration of the former.
Despite what the Pro moniker would suggest, there isn’t a whole lot different between the Galaxy J2 Pro and its sibling, with the upgrade coming in the form of the RAM being bumped up from 1.5 GB to 2 GB, and the storage doubling to 16 GB. All other specifications remain the same, with the Galaxy J2 Pro also featuring a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 1.5 GHz quad-core Spreadtrum SC8830 processor, expandable storage, an 8 MP rear camera and 5 MP front camera, a 2,600 mAh battery, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
With India being the target market, you get special features like S Bike mode, Ultra Data Saving mode and Turbo Speed Technology with this device. TST is reportedly able to launch native apps 40% faster than devices with double the RAM, but that’s obviously something we’ll have to test for ourselves. Like its siblings, you also get the odd-looking Smart Glow LED notification ring around the camera here, that lets you assign colors to different apps and contacts to know what the notification is related to, and can also notify you when you are running low on battery, storage, and data.
The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro is priced at Rs 9,890, and is definitely worth the upgrade over its namesake, which is only Rs 140 cheaper, and even with expandable storage available, users will definitely appreciate the additional built-in storage that this device packs. The Galaxy J2 Pro is available now from Snapdeal, with the color options including black, silver, and gold.
