Last month, Samsung was launched the Galaxy J2 (2016) smartphone with new Smart Glow notification system and Turbo Speed Technology (TST) in India. Today the company has launched an upgraded version of the smartphone called Galaxy J2 Pro with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, instead of 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of storage in the previous model.
Other specifications are the same, including the 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, Spreadtrum Quad-Core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, Ultra data saving (UDS) mode powered by Opera Max, S bike mode and Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) OS.
To remind you, the Smart Glow LED notification system consists of an LED ring around the rear camera that can be customized for priority notifications of any app or contact. Up to four alerts can be set with customized colors. It also alerts a user if they are running low on battery, internal memory, or mobile data. Users can also use the Smart Glow LED ring to position the rear camera for selfies with the Selfie Assist feature. The Smart Notifier software feature allows customizable notifications.
The Turbo Speed Technology (TST) promises superior device performance including native apps loading up to 40% faster than devices with double the RAM. Samsung says that it has rewritten native apps such as camera, gallery, and contacts, etc. that are most frequently used by consumers. It also proactively shuts down idle processes running in the background and declutters RAM using its intelligent memory system to ensure resources like RAM and processor are free and ready to take on new tasks, thereby extending fastest in-class experience.
