Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018) leaks in all its low-end glory

At the high-end, Samsung’s all about Infinity Displays and small bezels and the 18.5:9 aspect ratio, but the Korean company also churns out quite a few low-end offerings each year. And now we’re fast approaching the launch of just such a device: the Galaxy J2 (2018), previously thought to be Galaxy J2 Pro (2017). The handset has received the full leak treatment today, with specs accompanying the press renders you can see below.

The Galaxy J2 (2018) will come with a 5″ 540×960 Super AMOLED touchscreen, 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 425 chipset, which has a 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU.

Camera-wise, you’re getting an 8 MP shooter on the back, and a 5 MP unit on the front, and they both have an LED flash interestingly. The J2 (2018) has dual-SIM support, Bluetooth 4.2, LTE Cat.4 (up to 150Mbps down), and 802.11n Wi-Fi. A 2,600 mAh replaceable battery charges through a microUSB port.

The phone weighs 153g and runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It will be available in Russia and other emerging markets in the coming weeks, retailing for around 115.
