It may look as Samsung is working on the budget series of smartphone, the Galaxy J2 series, not just on the flagship family, the Galaxy S9, and the mid-range series, the Galaxy A (2018) series.
Some information about an alleged Galaxy J2 Pro and renders of it have emerged on the web, and rumors suggest that the J series might land earlier in 2018, too. Before going to the renders, it is said that this J2 Pro is going to sport a 5-inch HD (1280×720) display, thus retaining the 16:8 screen ratio.
It is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 430 chipset, with a quad-core processor coupled with either 1.5GB or 2GB or RAM, though I believe it’s going to be the second option. Most likely it’ll offer 16GB internal storage. Unfortunately, the rest of the specs are missing at this point, but most certainly more information will leak in the following months.
