The upcoming Samsung Galaxy J2 has been rumored for a while now in the interwebs, the specs of the Android devices leaks a few weeks ago had made an appearance on FCC.
FCC is the US regulatory body that gives a smartphone company the approval to release a upcoming product, on May 13, Samsung was seen on FCC. The Samsung Galaxy J2 was listed in a clear indication that they will release it in the US soon.
“Earlier today, an unannounced dual-SIM Galaxy-branded smartphone passed through the United States of America’s official certification authority, the FCC. The handset was recorded carrying the model number SM-J210F,” notes SamMobile.
The FCC listing mentioned the model SM-J210F, the same model for Galaxy J2 2015 SM-J200F, SM-J200H, SM-J200Y. Though we are unsure if Samsung is going to launch a specific region-variants for the said smartphone.
The Galaxy J2 (2016) is the successor of the Galaxy J2 (2015), which was a mid-range offering from the company. While the FCC listing does not shed any light on the specs of the upcoming handset — apart from the battery size, which was not known earlier and is listed as 1,500 mAh — a previous leak gave us a peek into its specs.
