Samsung has today unveiled the Galaxy Wide 2 in Korea, its homeland. The smartphone comes as the successor to the last year’s Galaxy Wide and bears the model number SM-J727S.
Although the device is not listed on the company’s official website currently, SK Telecom, a Korean carrier has launched the device in the company’s homeland, i.e., Korea. Few reports including the one from Phonearena suggest that the Galaxy Wide 2 could be the local version of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) considering its model number.
As far as the specs are concerned, the Galaxy Wide 2 rocks a 5.5-inch HD LCD display with a layer of 2.5D curved glass over it. There’s a 1.6GHz chipset teamed up with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. The device also accepts microSD card. So, you can further expand the storage up to 256GB if needed.
When it comes to the imaging department, the Galaxy Wide 2 features a 13MP (f/1.9) camera at the back. At the front is a 5MP camera which takes care of selfies and video calls.
The Galaxy Wide 2 boots Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and draws juice from a 3,300mAh battery. Combined with the fact that the smartphone comes with an HD display, we can easily expect the device to offer good battery life.
Like mentioned earlier, the smartphone is launched in Korea and there’s no news on when the smartphone will be made available to other markets. The Galaxy Wide 2 is priced at KRW 297,000 which is approximately Rs. 17,171. Do make a note that this price is just a direct conversion of currency and that the actual price of the product when it’s announced in the country could vary.
