The Samsung Galaxy J2 2017 is a budget smartphone targeted at the Indian market. It has a 4.7-inch display and is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1 GB RAM. It is striking that the display is Super AMOLED. That is something not common on Samsung’s budget smartphones. Another is that it is a 4G LTE mobile phone.

Of course, at this price point, a fingerprint scanner is not expected. See the full Samsung Galaxy J2 2017 specs and price below.
