Samsung today launched a new smartphone into the entry-level class, named Galaxy J2 Ace (SM-J120G), in Indian market at Rs.8490. The smartphone will be available in Gold, Black, and Silver color options.
The Samsung Galaxy J2 Ace features a polycarbonate body with a rough finished back cover, which is expected to bring a good grip. The device flaunts a 5-inch PLS display with 960 x 540 qHD resolution, which gives a pixel density of 220 PPI. Specially, the new Samsung’s smartphone runs on a MediaTek chipset instead of a Exynos or Qualcomm. The phone is powered by the MediaTek MT6735T quad-core SoC clocked at 1.4 GHz, with the Mali-T720 GPU for handling graphics. In terms of memory, the Galaxy J2 Ace has been equipped with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of inbuilt memory, which can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card slot.
At the back of the smartphone is the 8MP main snapper, with an f/2.2 aperture lens and an LED flash, along with the capability of 720p HD video recording. On the front of the Galaxy J2 Ace offers a 5MP camera, paired with an f/2.2 aperture lens, LED flash as well, for taking beautiful selfie shots. Other smart connectivity features including 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, FM Radio, and a Micro USB 2.0 port are also offered. As it is an entry-level handsets, so the Galaxy J2 Ace does not come equipped with a fingerprint scanner and a large battery. The device is only powered by a 2600mAh capacity battery, which is slightly higher than a few entry-level smartphones but nothing special.
