Samsung may have announced the Galaxy C Series for the Chinese market, but it doesn’t mean that they are going to stop launching new phones. The company recently took the curtains off the Galaxy J3 Pro, an entry-level smartphone for China.
The Galaxy J3 Pro is a slightly more powerful version of the Galaxy J, featuring a 5” 720p Super AMOLED display. On the inside, it is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor paired with 16GB of expandable storage (up to 128GB via its microSD slot, and 2GB of RAM.
Camera wise, there is a modest 8MP f2.2 shooter at the back, and 5MP selfie camera. Other specs include NFC, 2600mAh battery, and runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.
What makes the J3 Pro interesting is that despite being an entry-level device, it also has an all-metal body to give it a slightly more premium feel. The Galaxy J3 Pro is available in gold or black for a retail price of US$150 – that’s about RM615, much cheaper than the newly-announced Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7that retails at US$330 (RM1,340) and US$396 (RM1,610) respectively.
