Samsung is constantly in the pursuit of bringing meaningful innovation to consumers. The Galaxy J2 Pro with Turbo Speed Technology is designed to provide superior device performance. Furthermore, the Smart Glow feature is an industry first that not only enables automatic rear camera selfies but also provides a fresh new design element and a host of other utility features.
– Manu Sharma, Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India.
The Smart Glow is certainly an industry first and a one of a kind feature on the J2 Pro. The Samsung Smart Glow essentially comes with three basic features as of now. These are the priority alerts, usage alerts, and the selfie assists. The first two work as an advance notification system of sorts by providing the user with alerts when a user defined priority is encountered by the system or when the usage on the phone exceeds the usage limit.
The selfie assist is the real clincher for the Smart Glow feature. It will take automatic selfies but only when, for example, the user’s face is completely in frame so as to allow for a good image capture. The Samsung Smart Glow is a neat new feature and we can’t wait to see how Samsung expands its use cases in future.
If you are looking for a decent budget phone with a bit of functionality niftiness the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro is the smartphone you need.
