Samsung launches the Galaxy J3 Pro in India with Android 5.1 Lollipop

Samsung had announced the entry-level smartphone Galaxy J3 Pro (SM-J320F) for the Indian market two months ago, but the phone is available for purchase starting today. The Galaxy J3 Pro is priced at INR 7,990 (approximately $124) in the country, and is available for purchase from Flipkart as well as Samsung’s official online store. It is available in Black, Gold, and White.

The Galaxy J3 Pro features a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel primary camera with HD video recording, and a 5-megapixel secondary camera with F2.2 aperture. The phone is equipped with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor from Spreadtrum, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot (supports up to 128GB cards). The phone also features the S Bike and Ultra Data Saving modes.

It’s a dual-SIM smartphone with LTE connectivity (with VoLTE), Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, GPS (with GLONASS), Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, microUSB 2.0 port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It packs a 2600 mAh battery and comes with three-year-old Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system. It even lacks a fingerprint sensor, something that is offered by most devices in its price range, making it a deal breaker for consumers.

The Galaxy J3 Pro was launched in China last year, and we don’t know why it took Samsung so much time to launch it in India.
