India gets another exclusive device from Samsung in the budget category as the OEM announced the J2 Pro today. Samsung seems to be introducing a series of new smartphones to the subcontinent with the "Pro" moniker, boosted by slightly better hardware than their regular versions. As of now, we have the J2 (2016) Pro, J3 (2016) Pro, On5 Pro and the On7 Pro.
We can see two major hardware upgrades in the Pro version, as compared to the regular edition and they are in the RAM and internal storage department of the device. The J2 Pro will sport 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, as compared to the 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage on the J2 (2016). All other features, including the 1.5GHz Cortex A7 quad core processor and the 720p display remain the same.
In case you are interested in buying the smartphone, you can only do so from the Indian online retailer, Snapdeal for INR 9.890 ($150). The three color options of gold, silver and black are pretty much what we have come to expect from Samsung's low to mid range phones nowadays.
