Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime lands at T-Mobile and MetroPCS as a cheap Nougat phone
T-Mobile and MetroPCS this week released a new and affordable Android smartphone made by Samsung: the Galaxy J3 Prime.

The J3 Prime appears to be a rebranded Galaxy J3 Emerge (launched earlier this year via Sprint and its prepaid brands). However, the handset offered by T-Mobile and MetroPCS has a couple of advantages over Sprint's J3 Emerge: it's cheaper, and runs Android 7 Nougat (instead of Android Marshmallow).

If you're buying the Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime from T-Mobile, you can get it for $150 outright, or $6 per month (for $24 months) and $6 upfront. At MetroPCS, the new phone can be purchased for just $69.99 (discounted from $139.99), no contract required.

Besides Android 7 Nougat, the Galaxy J3 Prime features a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, a quad-core Qualcomm processor (likely the Snapdragon 425), 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable storage space. You're also getting a 2 MP front-facing camera, a 5 MP rear camera, and a 2600 mAh battery. Not too bad for $70, is it?
