The manual of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) has appeared today on the manufacturer's website, providing important information about the design and the software features of the handset. The diagram included with the manual seems to confirm the leaked renders of the smartphone that were released recently. It seems that the smartphone will sport a display with an aspect ratio of 16:9. Directly below the display are the home button, back key, and the recent apps key while above the screen are the front-facing camera, earpiece, proximity sensor, and LED flash. The manual notes that people may long press the home button in order to open the Google app. On the right, the user will find the power button while the volume keys are located on the opposite side. Also according to the manual, the handset will include a backfiring loudspeaker that is located directly beside the rear shooter and the LED flash. The rear panel can be detached from the rest of the device in order for individuals to install or remove the handset's battery, the SIM card, and the microSD card.
The launcher that comes with the Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) is similar to what is found on the Galaxy S8, which means that the users may swipe up on the home screen in order to reveal the all apps screen. It also seems that the device will launch with Android Nougat pre-installed, so the owners of the device may use features like the multi-window mode. In order to trigger this feature, users will only need to tap on a button found on the upper left-hand side of the recent app windows. The Samsung Health app, on the other hand, allows users to count their steps and set their daily fitness goals. The smartphone includes a blue light filter, which should help in reducing eye strain, although Samsung notes that this feature cannot be activated when watching HDR video.
Earlier reports state that the Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) will be powered by the Snapdragon 425 chipset. which is comprised of an octa-core ARM Cortex A53 CPU that is clocked at up to 1.4GHz and the Adreno 308 GPU. It is expected to include 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal flash storage that could be expanded by a microSD card. The report also states that the rear camera of the device will be equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor while the front-facing snapper will have a 5-megapixel shooter.
