  • Entry-level Samsung Galaxy J2 2017 Edition debuts with quad-core ...

By launching the Galaxy J2 (2017) Samsung is basically trying to target the budget phone category after announcing a range of premium phones including the Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and also the Galaxy Note 8.

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. However, as is typical for the smartphone market these days, not every colour has been available in every region. Frankly, we'll take the blue over the grey any day of the week though. The phone comes with a 4.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display with 540x960 pixels resolution. It packs 1GB RAM (yeah, that's one of the reasons you are getting the phone for $100) and 8GB internal storage. There is an option to further expand the storage up to 128GB via microSD card.

As for optics, the device is equipped with a 5MP rear autofocus camera with flash, as well as a 2MP front camera.

The device is backed by a 2000mAh removable battery that Samsung claims lasts up to 9 hours on LTE. The dual-SIM handset also supports USB OTG (on-the-go), which is a rarity in this segment. Priced at Rs 17,990, the tablet will be available on major e-retailers as well as offline stores. It is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor of unknown company. However, the official listing of the device only shows the Absolute Black and there is no word regarding the availability of the handset.

Built with 6GB RAM, a 10nm processor, and 64GB memory space (expandable up to 256GB), the Galaxy Note 8 offers users more flexibility for internet browsing, video streaming, playing games, and multitasking.
