This time, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) with the model number SM-J250F received its Bluetooth certification. Not long ago, this handset also visited the FCC, so it should launch pretty soon.

India is a key market for smartphone makers, especially when it comes to affordable Android-powered handsets. Last year, Samsung introduced the Galaxy J2 Pro in the area. The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2016) was based on the Galaxy J2 (2016) but provided more memory and storage space (2 GB and 16 GB for the J2 Pro instead of 1.5 GB and 8 GB for the standard J2). Now, the Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) is apparently ready to hit the market.

The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) surfaced online labeled using the SM-J250F model number two times so far. Unsurprisingly, this handset arrived at the FCC last month, and now the time has come for it to pay Bluetooth SIG a visit. The only problem is that no details have been revealed by the FCC or Bluetooth SIG documents, except for some ubiquitous connectivity features and the fact that this handset will launch with a removable battery onboard.

Last year's Galaxy J2 Pro arrived on the market in July with a Spreadtrum SC8830 chipset inside and Google's Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system installed. Its 5-inch Super AMOLED display has 1,280 x 720 pixels and a 294 ppi density. The handset is powered by a 2,600 mAh battery that allows its users to enjoy at least one day of mixed usage.

Samsung still has to confirm the arrival of the new Galaxy J2 Pro, but we expect this handset to arrive in time for the winter shopping season, maybe even by the end of November. In terms of hardware specs and features, we expect a Nougat-driven low-end smartphone with a few upgrades here and there, nothing out of ordinary. However, the new Galaxy J2 Pro might soon become a quite successful product in India, just like most of its predecessors.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
