Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro with S-Bike mode and Android 5.1 Lollipop launched for Rs 8,490


Samsung has quietly introduced a new J-series smartphone for India – Galaxy J3 Pro. The new Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro is the slightly tweaked version of the Galaxy J3 that was launched last year. The Galaxy J3 Pro will sell exclusively at the Paytm Mall from April 6 onwards.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro was first announced in June 2016 for China region. Now the phone has quietly made its way to India. Samsung equips the Galaxy J3 Pro with a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with HD resolution. This display makes text and other visual stuff legible under the sun. Mostly because it comes with the S-Bike mode.

Samsung claims that the phone has been “Made for India” and also features the Ultra Data Saving option. It appears to be a dual SIM phone and also supports 4G LTE network as well. The Galaxy J3 Pro houses a quad-core 1.5GHz processor coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage space. Of course there is a memory card slot to add a microSD card.

The phone has an 8-megapixel camera with a LED flash at the back. On the front is a 5-megapixel camera. It is a surprise that the Galaxy J3 Pro still boots Android 5.1 Lollipop which is a tad old now. There’s no confirmed word on whether Samsung plans to see a Nougat update for this handset.

The phone also offers connectivity features such as Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with GLONASS, NFC, and a micro USB port. Samsung uses a 2,600mAh battery to power this dual SIM smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro is priced at Rs 8,490 and will go on sale from April 6 at Paytm Mall.
