Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018) specs and price leaked

(Reuters/Noor Khamis)Samsung is set to launch their flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone in March.

It's not only the Galaxy S9 that has been making rounds online, as another smartphone from Samsung's Galaxy family is also getting its fair share.

A listing from a Russian website showed some of the specs and other key details of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018). The BeCompact website came up with a listing, showcasing an image of the smartphone and its specs. According to the page, the device, with model number SM-J250F, will feature a 5-inch qHD (540x960 pixels) Super AMOLED display.

Moreover, the smartphone will also run on the Snapdragon 425 (MSM8917) SoC by Qualcomm and a with a quad-core 1.4GHz CPU. Furthermore, it will also come with 1.5 GB of RAM. Meanwhile, Gadgets360 also noted that the device will sport an 8-megapixel rear camera sensor, complete with an LED flash. At the front part, the smartphone will showcase a 5-megapixel camera sensor that is complimented with a selfie flash.

Apart from the specs, the Russian website also posted the price of the Galaxy J2 (2018), which is pegged at RUB 7,990 or around US$138. The listing also showed two colors for the device, namely, the Black and the Gold variants. Samsung, however, has yet to announce the official launching of the Galaxy J2 (2018), but with this recent leak, the date may just be around the corner.

Aside from the Galaxy J2 (2018), Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S9, has also been making noise even before it is officially unveiled. Earlier this week, smartphone case maker Ghostek posted their special casing for the device, showing a render of the Galaxy S9. Based on the image of Ghostek's Rugged Waterproof Case for the Galaxy S9, the device will likely feature a single-camera setup, a detail that has already been making the rounds online.

The Galaxy S9+, however, will likely be the model that will sport a dual-camera setup, making it the most distinct difference between the two flagship models.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are expected to launch sometime in February of 2018.
