Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018) Specs and Pricing Leaked Ahead of Launch
Long before the official product launch, the Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018) has already appeared in an online e-commerce firm listing. Not only does the website reveal the product’s price, it also lists the device’s key features.
Galaxy J2 (2018) Features
The Galaxy J2 (2018) will allegedly come with a 5.0-inch super AMOLED 590 x 940p display, as seen in the Russian e-commerce website BeCompact.
Powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon (MSM8917) quad-core CPU, the Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018) also comes with 1.5Gb RAM. In addition, it features 16Gb internal storage expandable at up to 256Gb via microSD.
The Galaxy J2 (2018) touts an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 5MP front-facing camera. It also comes with a 2,600mAh battery.
Pricing and Availability
In terms of pricing, the Galaxy J2 (2018) costs RR 7,990 (approximately Php 6,945.22).

In fact, it could rival brands like Xiaomi, Lenovo, and Honor, which to date more closely compete with Samsung’s stronghold of the Android user base.
