Some years ago was kinda difficulty to classify Samsung smartphone apart from the well established Galaxy and Note’s line. There were dozens of Galaxy Youngs, Galaxy Grands and Galaxy Aces literally forming a galaxy of smartphones.
The years have passed and the company reinvented its smartphone segment offering the A series for the mid-range and the J class of smartphones for the entry-grade. With a “smartphones for all the budgets” offer the company is keeping a better constructed and organized profile.
Apparently the South Korean giant manufacturer is more than busy during this last month of 2017. Reports suggests that the company is already working in their next flagship, the Galaxy S9, also in the next generation of its A mid-range series and according to a recent leak in the next generation of its budget J series with the Galaxy J2 Pro being the first one spotted.
According to the sources at 91mobiles the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) measures 143.1 x 72.2 x 8.6 mm, packs a 5-inch 720p display with a whole more refined design and build, although it’s still a made of plastic smartphone.
Previous rumors pointed the Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) to come powered by the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 paired with 1,5GB or 2GB of RAM with 8GB storage or 16GB respectively. The smartphone is expected to hit the shores earlier in 2018 with a $150 price tag, hopefully running Android 8.0 out the box.
The J series usually make it to Asia, Latin America, Africa and Europe, but according to some reports it may actually arrive in the US market during 2018. Smartphones like this one usually doesn’t make us Chinese smartphones enthusiasts to hold our breath specially considering the competition on the same price segment, but its good to see Samsung more and more giving a special treatment to the low-budget segment.
