In the past few years, we have seen Samsung catering to the Chinese market with a lot of attention. They have had recent exclusive releases like the Galaxy A9 Pro and in the past, the very A-series was launched in China first. Samsung just launched another smartphone that will be exclusive to China, at least for now. This is the brawnier brother of the J3 2016 that the OEM released earlier, expectedly named, J3 Pro.
The J3 Pro will feature Samsung's Super AMOLED panel, albeit at 720p resolution on its 5-inch screen. Samsung is powering the device with the dated Snapdragon 410 SoC and 2GB of RAM. There will be only a 16 gig variant, but with expandable memory up to 128GB via SD card. The smartphone will support dual SIM and unfortunately, it will run on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 out of the box. There will be an 8-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and a 5-megapixel selfie cam. To power all this, Samsung has endowed the J3 Pro with a healthy 2,650 mAh battery.
All in all, we think that Samsung will have a hard time finding a good market for the J3 Pro in China, which is the home to the kings of budget smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi and OnePlus.
