The website reveals every single detail about the smartphone, including its special software features and the slightly refreshed design.

The smartphone still seems to be made of plastic but this time around appears to come with a uniform colour scheme and patterned back. The new Samsung Galaxy J2 will be available in gold and black finishes, offering two options for entry-level buyers.

Samsung has included a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display offering a qHD (540 x 960 pixels) resolution. Inside, there's a Samsung-made quad-core Exynos chipset paired with 1 GB RAM.

Internal storage seems a bit too little at 8 GB and even out of this only 4.3 GB is accessible to the user. Thankfully, Samsung has included an SD card slot which accepts microSD cards of up to 128 GB.

Coming to the cameras we get a 5 MP rear camera with autofocus and an LED flash. The front facing camera is a 2 MP unit.

The device weighs 130 grams and is powered by a removable 2,000 mAh battery. The device runs the usual selection of Samsung apps, including a new Smart Manager software that will automatically manage the memory of the device by purging unnecessary or duplicate data.
