But now more reports have leaked about the device, this time via Geekbench, as well as now we know what all specs it would come with. Well for starters, the rumored device is set to come with Android Lollipop 5.1.1, which is the latest version the Google’s operating system. This is unheard of, as Samsung has never offered the latest OS on their budget friendly device. But it looks like this time there would be an exception.
Though, it’s highly likely that we would see a ne TouchWiz UI from Galaxy S6 on the new J-series handset. The J2 is all set to feature 4.7-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM.
