The rumored Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) is expected to feature the same round-shaped Smart Glow LED around the main camera that is available on the predecessor phone.  The Smart Glow ring can light up to alert users on incoming SMS, emails, phone calls and so on.

The arrival of the SM-J250F seems to be close at hand as the smartphone has been certified by FCC and Bluetooth SIG earlier in this month. This suggests that the alleged Galaxy J2 Pro (2017) may launch in time for the upcoming holiday season. It is likely to be aimed towards Europe and select markets in Asia.
