The Galaxy J2 debuted last year as an affordable handset running on the Android 5.1 Lollipop platform. Now, Samsung seems to be prepping its upgraded version for this year as the Galaxy J2 made its way to the benchmark databases.
Well, the upcoming Galaxy J2 was leaked on AnTuTu, GFXBench, and Geekbench websites confirming its existence. The device is tipped to arrive with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with the recent TouchWiz UI.
Following the parade on the benchmarking websites, the Galaxy J2 has cleared FCC certification as well. Nevertheless, the specs of the device were not revealed by the same.
Galaxy J2 passes FCC revealing model number
Samsung Galaxy J2 that is in the works seems to have cleared the FCC certification. It is claimed to carry the model number SM-J210F.
While it is revealed to have a 1,500 mAh battery, it might be an error as the yesteryear model had a 2,000 mAh battery.
Galaxy J2 to feature an HD display
The benchmark listings claim that the Galaxy J2 2016 might sport an HD display carrying an HD 720p resolution. This is quite standard for the low-end model.
As per AnTuTu, there is no mention of the screen size. But, GFXBench confirms it to be 5 inches which is larger than the 4.7-inch one in the predecessor.
Use a Spreadtrum quad-core CPU
The smartphone in the making is listed to equip a Spreadtrum SC8830 quad-core processor under its hood. This processor is likely to be clocked at 1.5 GHz and teamed up with 2 GB of RAM.
It is also claimed to house 16 GB of native storage space that can be further expanded with the help of a micro SD card slot.
8 MP and 5 MP camera combo on Galaxy J2
The new Galaxy J2 is listed on the benchmark databases with an 8 MP main camera at its back and a 5 MP front facer at the front.
4G LTE support on board
While GFXBench tips that the device will support 4G LTE, the AnTuTu benchmark listing shows that it will support only 3G. However, the previous generation Galaxy J2 supported 4G and so this one will also do.
The Geekbench listing reveals a decent score of 1274 multi-core and 404 single-core that show that the J2 2016 will be an improved version over its prequel.
