- Adrian Ungureanu

Samsung has officially launched a new budget smartphone, the Galaxy J2 Pro, for the first time in Vietnam, a not very impressive smartphone, but for its price segment it might be enough.

The phone sport a 5-inch qHD (960x540px) Super AMOLED display and under the hood in hides a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, coupled with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage. There’s also a slot for microSD cards if there’s a need for more storage.

The phone features an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie snapper. It offer 4G LTE support, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, a 3.5mm audio jack, micro USB connector, and is powered by a 2,600 mAh battery, which will provide, according to its maker, up to 14 hours of video content playback time, 18 hours of talk time over the 3G networks or up to 60 hours of audio playback time.

The phone is listed at a price tag of 3,290,000 VND, which is about €120 or $145, which not a very bad price. The phone is available now in Vietnam, but there’s no word about its availability in other markets. Most likely Samsung limit the number of countries where it’ll officially launch the Galaxy J2 Pro, to those markets where the price counts more than the specs.
