You can now lay your hands on the Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime (SM-G532G) in the Philippines.

The budget smartphone goes on sale starting February 18 and comes with a very affordable price of Php 5,990. The device will be available across Samsung Experience Stores and authorized dealers in the country.

For that amount you get a smartphone with LTE Category 4 capability and many more features. The Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime comes with a 5-inch TFT display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels and 220 ppi. The Galaxy J2 Prime is powered by a MediaTek MT6737T processor with Quad-core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz.

The choice of a MediaTek processor is a bit of a surprise because it is rare to find an MTK SoC in Samsung’s smartphones. Perhaps, the choice was precipitated by the desire to churn out affordable, pocket-friendly devices. Going further, the processor is backed by 1.5GB of RAM and there is 8GB of internal storage which can be ramped up via microSD slot up to 256GB.




In terms of photography, there is an 8MP rear camera unit with LED flash and up front, there is a 5MP selfie camera which doesn’t only deliver clear selfies but ensures they come out crisp clear with the LED flash that goes with it. Furthermore, the Galaxy J2 Prime comes with a 2,600mAh battery and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box.
