Yesterday, Samsung announced the release of the Galaxy Wide 2, a budget Korean version of the Samsung J7 2017.

The Galaxy Wide 1 was popular among middle-aged men in Korea and the Wide 2 will be hoping to build on its success. The Wide 2 will be cheaper than its predecessor, but price aside, it doesn’t offer anything special for a device released in 2017.

At the moment, the exact processor to be used in the Wide 2 remains unverified, but it has been confirmed to be an octa-core one and the device will also ship with a 5.5” HD LCD display, 2.5D glass, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage memory, and a 3300mAh battery.

It, rather disappointingly, opts out of a fingerprint reader but does come with a 13MP primary camera and 5MP selfie shooter.

The Galaxy Wide 2 is expected to retail with a price tag of $265, a rather hefty one for a device that can at best be described as functional. Those outside the US would be better served getting themselves a mid-range Chinese device.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
