Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro gets official: better cameras, more memory, same Lollipop
That elusive Galaxy J3 2017 from that was making the rounds in recent weeks at the FCC and its Chinese equivalent? Well, it just became official on Samsung's China website, and it will be called the Galaxy J3 Pro, of all things. It is seemingly just an upgraded version of the J3 2016, which appeared not that long ago, back in January. As the name suggests, the Pro variant will give you more than the previous J3 edition, in terms of operating memory, internal storage, and cameras.
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 phone retains the microSD slot for its expansion.
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.
