nerosenthal, we always want you to have the right case for your phone. While the Samsung J2 V2 is only slightly larger than the original model, we'd still recommend purchasing a new case. Forcing a smaller case onto your new phone may create more harm than good, and we wouldn't want any damage to come from this.
