Users will also get Airtel double data offer for 6 months which is worth Rs. 4,500.
Smart Glow ?
Talking about the new Smart Glow feature, it is the new sort of Ring surrounded the rear camera working as LED notification system. We can assign up to 4 apps or contact for priority notifications with different color. When you get any new notifications, the ring will Glow in assigned colors.
That’s not all. Smart Glow comes very useful when it comes to capture Selfies using the rear camera. Rear cameras are always better, right. The Selfie Assist feature works with Smart Glow. When you position the rear camera for Selfie, once the face is focused in the camera, it will Glow confirming that you must click the photo. There’s also timer sort of feature which will click the Selfie automatically after assign number of seconds after Smart Glow glows.
Smart Glow also alerts you with low battery notifications, mobile data, internal memory, and more.
Turbo Speed Technology (TST) ?
Samsung Galaxy J2 (2016)is also the first Samsung smartphone to come with Turbo Speed Technology (TST). It is the feature that optimizes the operating system and hardware to provide consistent best-in-class performance. Using this technology, Samsung has worked hard to make native apps such as camera, gallery, and contacts, etc load up to 40% faster compared to devices with double the RAM.
That’s not all. TST also keeps the device optimized by eliminating the unused idle processes in the background and freeing up the RAM and Processor so that they can be used by new tasks. This obviously speeds up the phone pretty much.
