Samsung has launched a new entry-level smartphone in India- the Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro. The smartphone will be exclusively available via e-commerce site Flipkart starting today at Rs. 7,990 in three colour options- gold, black, and white. Samsung says that the J3 Pro will take the legacy of J series, which is the largest selling smartphone range in India.


The Galaxy J3 Pro comes loaded with Samsung’s ‘Make for India’ features such as Ultra Data Saving (UDS) mode and S Bike mode. Coming to the specifications of the phone, the J3 Pro comes with a 5-inch HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 720×1280. The J3 Pro is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Spreadtrum chipset, paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The storage can be expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card slot.

Samsung has added an 8MP rear camera in the J3 Pro which has a f/2.2 aperture and a LED light. There’s also a 5MP front-facing camera which helps in video calls and capturing selfies. The camera app has features such as Auto, Beauty Face, Continuous Shot, HDR (High Dynamic Range), Panorama, Pro, Selfie, Sports, and Sound & Shot.

The phone has connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, UBS 2.0, GPS, and GLONASS. For 4G LTE, the phone has bands- 850, 900, 1800, 2100, 2300. The Galaxy J3 Pro runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with TouchWiz UI on top. That’s a major letdown as Google is readying the Android O for the official release.

This dual-SIM smartphone is backed by a 2600mAh battery. That said, the Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro is a major letdown considering the fact that there are best smartphones from Chinese vendors such as Xiaomi, Coolpad in the same price range.

However, Samsung managed to sell over three million units of the Galaxy J2 (2016) with its unique marketing strategy. Also, the Galaxy J2 (2016) was the top-rated smartphone of 2016.

“The Galaxy J3 Pro delivers powerful performance, outstanding display and also packs in consumer-centric features developed at our R&D centres in India. This launch will give Flipkart consumers the opportunity to buy ‘Galaxy J Series’ which is the largest selling range in India”, said Mr Sandeep Singh Arora, Vice President, Online Business, Samsung India.

Back in his engineering days, he used to play with smartphones by installing custom ROMs and that passion got him into the tech industry. He still goes nuts about a smartphone knocking his door for review. Currently managing everything at Telecom Talk, Chakri is trying to master PUBG Mobile in his free time.
