Even without the iPhone X, we probably should have expected this from Samsung, with both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 offering - admittedly sub-par - facial recognition features of their own. The Galaxy J2 comes with an Ultra Data Saving mode.
South Korean consumer electronics giant Samsung has launched yet another budget smartphone in India.
The Samsung Galaxy J2 comes with a 4.7-inch AMOLED display with 720p resolution. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

Front camera: The smartphone features a 2-megapixel selfie camera. Meanwhile, Ultra Data Saving mode is claimed to save data up to 50 percent.
The J2 comes with a 5MP back camera with an LED flash and there is a 2MP front camera and there is no flash on the front.
