Samsung might be focusing more on high-end and mid-range smartphones, but the company isn’t completely abandoning its more affordable low-end handsets. A new leak has revealed that the South Korean phone maker will be releasing the new 2018 version of the Galaxy J2 Pro.

The 2018 Galaxy J2 Pro was first revealed by Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) on Twitter with a CAD render of the handset. The leaker also collaborated with 91Mobiles to bring a 360-degree video of the upcoming budget Android smartphone.

The 2018 Galaxy J2 Pro will be the successor to the 2016 J2 Pro. The 2016 version of the handset features an LED ring around the rear-facing camera and it allowed users to take photos with the “Smart Glow” feature. For the 2018 Galaxy J2 Pro, it looks like Samsung has decided to ditch the ring-shaped LED light for a smaller and quite traditional LED flash.

As for the overall design, the 2018 Galaxy J2 Pro pretty much looks like Samsung’s most recent mid-range handsets. Since it’s a budget Android smartphone, the handset doesn’t have an Infinity Display or a “bezel-less” design. Instead, the handset will have the classic smartphone design with thick bezels and a plastic body. One advantage of having a plastic body is that the 2018 Galaxy J2 Pro will have a removable back panel. This will likely mean that it will have a removable battery. It still has a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, which doubles as a physical button at the bottom of the screen.

As for ports, the 2018 J2 Pro still has a micrUSB port on the bottom and the 3.5mm headphone jack on top. The power button is located on the right side, while the left will have the volume buttons. The dimensions of the phone are roughly 143.1 x 72.2 x 8.6mm. There’s no confirmation yet on the device’s exact screen size, but it will likely have a 5-inch display.

As for internal specs, the new Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro 2018 will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, which will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM. The device is expected to be a dual-SIM Android smartphone and will run Samsung’s custom skin on top of Android Nougat.

There’s no information yet on an exact release date. It might be announced this year or sometime early next year. It’s very likely that this phone will officially be released in Asia, Latin America or Europe. However, it could also arrive in the United States at some point, albeit through unofficial means, as pointed out by Phone Arena. Pricing for the 2018 Galaxy J2 Pro is expected to be under US$150.

Aside from the new Galaxy J2 Pro, specs for the 2017 Galaxy J5 Prime have also leaked online. The new J5 Prime will have a 5-inch IPS LCD display, with an Exynos 7570 chipset, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, according to GSM Arena. Like the J2 Pro, the new J5 Prime will feature a front-mounted fingerprint scanner and the typical Samsung smartphone design. It will also have 13MP camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, a 2,500 mAh non-removable battery and will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The new J5 Prime will likely be released in select markets before the end of 2017.
