Samsung Officially Launches Galaxy J2 in India For Under 6K

Meet the J1’s successor

Samsung has officially taken the wraps off of their Galaxy J2 in India. The Galaxy J2 is aimed at entry-level users who want a 4G capable smartphone without the attached pricetag of more expensive Android devices. Launched with Opera Max, the new phone sports an ultra data saving mode that allows users to block (and allow) individual apps from using mobile data, promising up to 50% savings in data used.
