Officially Launched

Samsung Galaxy J2 DTV is the first Smartphone to feature a Digital TV Tuner



Year after year, we see a bunch of Samsung smartphones. Most of them offer very similar specs more or less, with some exceptions. These exceptions do come with some of the most interesting features. One such offering is the new Galaxy J2 DTV. This device is essentially a variant of the Galaxy J2 (2016) launched previously. And as mentioned, this device comes with a Digital TV Tuner.

But the sadly this device is limited to the Philippines only. We don’t expect this device to make it out to other regions. Anyway, talking about the specs of the device, it features the same specs as that of the Galaxy J2 (2016). It is powered  by a 1.3 GHz quad-core Exynos 3457. The device packs 1GB of RAM and comes with 8GB of internal storage. In terms of the camera, we are looking at a 5-megapixel rear facing camera. On the front, we have a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 540 x 960.

The device is kept powered by a 2,000 mAh battery and hence you might be charging it quite often if you are going to use it to watch the TV. Most people might think this is kind of a pointless attempt from Samsung to launch this device. But however, it is reported that places like the Philippines have poor internet connectivity and hence streaming services like NetFlix, Hulu, etc won’t work as intended to. So having a Digital TV Tuner onboard makes a lot of sense if users want to watch TV.

The Galaxy J2 DTV is now on sale in the Philippines at a cost of 6,990 Philippine Pesos ($150). And if you are planning to import this device to use it outside, then do make a note that the Philippines uses a different broadcasting standard and hence it may or may not work for you outside. However, stay tuned for more info.
