Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro gets official: better cameras, more memory, same Lollipop

phone retains the microSD slot for its expansion.It's the cameras that have seemingly seen the biggest upgrade - the rear shooter has grown in resolution from 5 MP to 8 MP, and the selfie cam at the front went from 2 MP to 5 MP. While the J3 2016 comes with 1.5 GB of RAM, on the J3 Pro we have a nice round 2 GB number. The 8 GB internal storage capacity is now doubled to 16 GB from the get-go, while the
Other than that, most everything else has stayed the same - the 5" Super AMOLED HD display, 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 chipset, and 4G connectivity with dual SIM capabilities. Unfortunately, that goes for the operating system version, too, as it has stayed Android 5.1 Lollipop, which, six months after the unveiling of its predecessor, is a pity no matter how you slice it.

Agreed. How come Google let these companies get away with this crap? Almost 2 years old software. Samsung should be ashamed of themself. Shame on Samsung.

What's wrong with Lollipop? 5.1.1 isn't that old. Also what market is it for? Also, you have to consider, the phones are released with the version of Android that was available hen the phone was being created. Am sure it will get updated. Out the box it will still do more than many phones. No one cares what version of the software that comes on it. All they care about is the phone working. Getting wrapped up in software version numbers is just dumb!

Marshmallow was already released for months, even the previously released S7 came with Marshmallow, yet these new devices still come with Lollipop? Way to prove lazy efforts. "No one cares what version of the software that comes on it. All they care about is the phone working." This is why manufacturers are lagging in delivering system updates.

Why OEMs are still reluctant to use newer SD 4XX series like 415, 425, and 430?

That's why I suggest Chinese OEMs (which is officially available in my country) when it comes to entry level smartphones. They offer snapdragon 650 for the same buck (Redmi note 3 16GB ). Besides most of these entry level smartphone last 1yr max in my hand anyway. Then they either ruined by buggy OS updates or by accidental breaking by me :-P
