Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime: 5-inch 720p display, Exynos quad-core processor, Android Nougat

A new contender in the entry-level market


Just a few weeks after the release of their flagship smartphones, Samsung is back at it again with a completely different device, their latest budget-friendly handset – the Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime.

Last year’s release of the Galaxy J series is evident of the company’s strong presence in almost any budget category in the market. This is a precautionary action that the company is taking because of the fast growing and emerging Chinese smartphone brands that are offering high-end devices at a cheap price.

But unlike the handsetsfrom some competing brands, the Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime only has an entry-level set of features. This thing only has a 5-inch 720p display, 1.5GB of RAM, 5-megapixel primary camera, and other set of features that would only appeal to those who are looking for a decent 2017 smartphone.
