Samsung has unveiled the latest addition to its vast range of Android devices, the Galaxy J3 Pro. The new device is a lower-mid-range handset, and will go on sale in China later this month.
The J3 Pro stands out from many other lower-cost smartphones by offering metallic bodywork. Samsung said last year that it intends to differentiate its devices by offering slimmer designs, premium materials, and wider use of high-definition displays.
At 8mm-thick, the J3 Pro isn't the slimmest handset out there, even in its price range, but it does offer a solid set of specs with which to attract buyers, including:
- 5-inch Super AMOLED with HD (1280x720px) display
- Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB onboard storage (plus microSD card support up to 128GB)
- 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording at 30fps
- 5MP front-facing camera
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.1
- 4G LTE connectivity
- Dual-SIM support
- USB 2.0 port
- 2600mAh battery
- 142.2 x 71.3 x 8mm; 139g
The Galaxy J3 Pro will launch on China Telecom in the coming weeks, priced at 990 CNY (roughly $150 USD).
