The Galaxy J2 might be Samsung's first smartphone powered by an Exynos 3475 processor

The Galaxy J2 is an unannounced device that could be officially revealed in the near future as a new member of Samsung's Galaxy J series of Android smartphones (which currently includes the Galaxy J1, Galaxy J5, and Galaxy J7).

As previously reported, the Galaxy J2 (model number SM-J200F) is an entry-level device, though its features are a bit more exciting than those of the J1 (pictured above). According to SamMobile, the J2 is powered by a quad-core Exynos 3475 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. Since the Exynos 3475 hasn't been announced by Samsung, the J2 might become the world's first handset to use this processor.

Besides the new CPU, the Galaxy J2 allegedly features a 4.5-inch TFT display with 480 x 800 pixels, a 2 MP front-facing camera, a 5 MP rear camera, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. Measuring 136 x 69 x 8.3 mm, the J2 reportedly includes a 2000 mAh battery.

It's said that the Galaxy J2 will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop at launch, but for now we don't know exactly when Samsung intends to start selling the handset.

An exynos for entry-level device? Curious how it would perform.

They should use exynos in all of their devices rather than Crappy Spreadtrum SoC.

IKR!!! They do but they only use Exynos variants on non-international ones. Would make them really unique!

Left over garbage from phones before. Remember the Samsung Omnia?

How to remember when there are 91763671461238 models? They should reduce the number of models and focus on a few phones.

Actually, many phones only sold in certain places so it is benefiting Samsung really.

Yes. BUT it affects in software updates. Midrangers get little to no updates. Galaxy Star 2 launched in last April hasn't recieved lollipop. There are many phones out there without the latest software.
