While Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are doing great in the market, it looks like the South Korean smartphone giant has not forgotten about the budget Android phone segment.
Just recently, the company launched an updated version of its J2 Prime in the county with some spec improvement and newer software. The phone has a 5.5-inch full high definition display and the subtle design changes make it easy to hold the phone in one hand.
Aside from that, the phone runs on a 1.6 GHz Exynos octa-core processor. The SoC is paired with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which can be expanded with a microSD card like most Samsung made phones in the market. The phone has a metal unibody design and the front of the phone contains a fingerprint sensor alongside with 2.5D glass.
In the shooter department, the phone has a 13-megapixel camera on both front and rear. These cameras have f/1.9 aperture and the back camera supports Full HD video recording. Probably unique feature of the phone is Samsung’s Pay Mini which is designed for cashless payments in the country for entry-level smartphones.
The phone will sell for Rs 13,999 which is roughly $214. Considering the Moto G5 also got a price cut just a week ago, it will be interesting to see how J2 Prime 2 does in the market.
