Samsung today announced a new mid-range smartphone with the Galaxy J5 Pro. The phone was announced on the company’s official website in Thailand, and will cost around $294.
The Galaxy J5 Pro looks pretty identical to its older version, the Galaxy J5 which released earlier this year. Other than more RAM and storage, and a fingerprint scanner, both the handsets shares the same specs.
The Galaxy J5 Pro packs in a 5.2” 720p Super AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7870 64-bit octa-core processor, a 13-megapixel f/1.7 aperture back camera, as well as a f/1.9 shooter on the front. All of this is juiced by a 3,000mAh battery and supported by Android 7.1 Nougat baked with Samsung’s own UI.
The smartphone also has a fingerprint scanner placed below the display which also doubles as a home key, and is flanked by capacitive buttons on its sides. The power and lock key is placed on the right, while the two volume buttons are placed on the left. The device’s antenna bands are visible on the back, with the company branding present on both sides of the body.
The phone has only been announced for Thailand, so it’s not clear if Samsung plans to release the Galaxy J5 Pro in the UAE.
