Details on the second smartphone in Samsung’s Galaxy J series, the Galaxy J2, have leaked out today courtesy of Samsung fan site SamMobile. The Galaxy J1 was an extremely low-end handset that wasn’t widely launched, but its successor is said to feature hardware that’s considerably better.
The Galaxy J2 will reportedly feature a 4.5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 800×480 pixels, a quad-core Exynos 3475 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1.5GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB of expandable internal storage, and a 2,000 mAh battery. It will run on Android 5.1.1 out of the box – 5.1.1 is yet to reach most Samsung phones in the market, which means the J2 will be pretty up-to-date in terms of software.
SamMobile hasn’t published information on a possible release date for the J2, and it’s likely the announcement will be a quiet affair with emerging markets to see initial availability. The Galaxy J1 is available on Verizon for $99.99, and judging by the specs of the Galaxy J2, its price tag will no doubt be noticeably higher should the device ever make its way to the US.
