Samsung intros the Galaxy J2 in India: a $129 Android Lollipop smartphone
Samsung today announced the Galaxy J2, a relatively modest smartphone that joins the Galaxy J1, Galaxy J5, and Galaxy J7 in Samsung's J series of Android devices.

Revealed in India, the Galaxy J2 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and features an Ultra Data Saving mode powered by Opera Max (as you may know, Opera Max is also available as a separate app that allows Android users to save mobile data).

According to Opera, its data-optimization technology can deliver up to 50% savings in mobile data and free up to 11% of RAM, by reducing consumption on data-hungry applications like YouTube, Instagram, or Vine. Ultra Data Saving mode will also let Galaxy J2 owners block individual apps from using cellular data.

Powered by a quad-core 1.3 GHz Exynos 3475 processor, the Galaxy J2 sports a 4.7-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels, further featuring: LTE connectivity, 2 MP front-facing camera, 5 MP rear camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2000 mAh battery.

Samsung will sell the Galaxy J2 starting September 21 in India, asking about $129 for it (8,490 INR in local currency). At the moment, we don't know if the handset will be available in other markets. Would you get one if you had the chance?
