Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro

The Galaxy J2 Pro is an addition to Samsung’s 4G enabled smart phones portfolio, which constitutes over 60% of the 4G market share in India today. Galaxy J2 Pro has been re-engineered, re-designed and re-loaded with new ‘Make for India’ features such as Turbo Speed Technology (TST), a revolutionary innovation which results in superior device performance, and Smart Glow, a next-gen colour LED notification system for the convenience of the user. TST is a revolutionary innovation which results in superior performance including native apps opening up to 40% faster than devices with double the RAM. Smart Glow consists of a first-ever LED notification ring at the back of the smartphone that addresses the growing consumer need of capturing superior selfies. Smart Glow assists in orienting the rear camera to take auto-focussed higher resolution selfies.

Re-engineered, Re-designed and Re-loaded smartphone

  • Re-engineered with Turbo Speed Technology: Samsung has re-engineered the Galaxy J2 Pro with Turbo Speed Technology (TST). TST is a revolutionary innovation which results in superior device performance including native apps opening up to 40% faster than devices with double the RAM. Samsung 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.
  • Re-designed with Smart Glow: The innovative Smart Glow in Galaxy J2 Pro is a next-gen color LED notification system that also enables the rear camera selfie camera mode. Users can use the Smart Glow LED ring to guide the rear camera for higher mega-pixel selfies with the Selfie Assist feature. Once the picture is positioned correctly and focussed, the enitre ring glows to alert consumers that the picture is ready and is captured automatically. Smart Glow also allows consumers to create and assign colors for up to four priority notifications of any app or contact. Additional utility benefits include alerts for a user if they are running low on battery, internal memory, or mobile data.
  • Re-loaded with ‘Make for India’ features: The latest Galaxy J2 Pro smartphone comes loaded with popular ‘Make for India’ innovations such as S bike mode and Ultra Data Saving mode.

Samsung India had launched industry first S bike mode, a dedicated bike mode that lets consumers ‘ride tension free’ while encouraging responsible riding. This was based on the insight that two-wheeler riders receive a lot of unimportant calls and notifications while riding. The S bike mode’s urgent call alert system notifies callers through an automated answering machine that the user is riding and is unavailable to take calls. However, callers have the option to press 1 in case the call is urgent. As a safety feature, the in-built motion lock ensures that the rider has to come to a halt before they can answer the call.

The ‘Ultra Data Saving’ (UDS) mode provides up to 50% mobile data savings by blocking unnecessary background applications from consuming data. It also has a proprietary data compression technology, which ensures the most cost-efficient 4G experience.
