Samsung Galaxy Adds New Features To The J2 And Makes Charging Faster For Note 6

Samsung Galaxy is adding some new features to its J2 budget smartphone, and it is changing the way that users charge their Galaxy Note 6. Currently, Samsung is upgrading its budget line of phones to expand its budget lineup and capture a larger market share for the smartphone market.

Value Walk reported that one of the new features that Samsung is adding to the Galaxy J2 (2016) is a selfie camera. The new phone will offer a 2 GB RAM and a 5 MP camera. This is a new handset, and it will be based on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The updates to this phone are considered major, and it will also include an 8 MP rear camera, as well as a five inch screen and a 720 x 1280 resolution. The new specifications were leaked on one of India's import/export sites Zauba.

Samsung also announced the Galaxy J5 and J7 prices in China. These phones are mid range phones in the Samsung Galaxy line, and the J5 will cost around $250 while the J7 will run around $310. Both will come with new design features, and that includes a metal frame.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 will be the larger of the two smartphones, and it will offer a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, and the pixel density will be 402ppi. It will also include a 3 GB RAM and 16 GB of storage. Memory can be expanded to 128 GB while it sports a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front facing camera.

The advantage of the Samsung Galaxy J5, although it's smaller, is that it will offer a long-lasting battery. It includes 2 GB of RAM, a 13 MP camera on the back while including a 5 MP camera on the front, and a 5.2-inch HD Super AMOLED display.

As previously reported by Inquisitr, the Samsung Galaxy S7 was released to rave reviews. It is a top-end phone released by Samsung, and it was priced around $699 for the S7 and $799 for the S7 Edge. Although users are impressed with the features of the new phone, it does have one problem, and that's with the home button. It is easily scratched.

The Galaxy S7 does offer features that the iPhone doesn't have though, and there are many apps that can be added to the phone that make it even better. Many of the apps that will improve the function of the S7 are usually free, although some of the apps that allow for more functionally can be purchased inexpensively.

International Business Times reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will feature USB so that it will charge faster. It will adopt a USB-C port, and this new technology will give the smartphone a significant boost in performance.

Although the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is receiving this technology, Samsung is sticking with the micro USB for the S7 and S7 Edge. Samsung said that there were several reasons for sticking with the current technology, and the first was because of Gear VR. It has been used widely to promote the new phone, and it uses Micro USB to plug into the phone the user owns.

Samsung said that the market isn't currently ready for the new standard, although Apple recently adopted the new technology for its Mac Book, and many major companies are following suit. Samsung plans to launch the new Samsung Galaxy Note 6 in July, a month ahead of schedule.
