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

The Samsung Galaxy J2 comes with a 4.7-inch AMOLED display with 720p resolution. Under the hood is an unknown chipset with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. Samsung, however, hasn't mentioned the version of Android that this smartphone is using. 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.

Storage: Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) comes with 8GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.

Efforts to make the under-display fingerprint sensor a reality in the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 have begun with three companies looking to be Samsung's provider of the component. Other features include dual SIM, 4G, Wi-FI, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System. The device runs Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box and has a single-SIM functionality. This new feature would allow users to continue using fingerprint sensors for authentication even without bezels on their devices.

Front camera: The smartphone features a 2-megapixel selfie camera.

The Galaxy J2 2017 Edition isn't that different from its predecessor in terms of features.

Measuring 136.5 x 69.0 x 8.4mm, the smartphone weighs 130 grams.

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. "So that you get the most cost efficient 4G experience", writes Samsung on its India website.

Samsung's ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 refuses to die, coming back as the Galaxy Note Fan Edition to Malaysia after an initial rebirth in South Korea a few months ago. The availability of the smartphone has yet not been revealed by the company.

The phone is only available in black and gold colors and it is launched in India for INR 7,390 and is expected to launch in Pakistan in few weeks.
