Samsung has launched the J5 Prime in the Indian market today and will go on sale in next few days online as well as offline. The J5 Prime was launched along with the Samsung J7 Prime which offers better specs and is priced higher at Rs. 18490.
Both J5 and the J7 Prime are upgraded version of the Samsung J5 2016 and Samsung J7 2016 launched in May this year.
While the Samsung J7 prime is already available in retail shops in Mumbai, we reported the launch of device and price information yesterday. (sometimes we report ahead of an actual launch). The information about the Samsung J7 Prime price and images was share by Mahesh Telecom (a Mumbai retailer).
Coming to the Samsung J5 Prime the smartphone has got the new Fingerprint scanner which was not there on the Older Samsung J5 2016 which was launched in May 2016.
The Samsung J5 Prime comes with 5 inch display and still has the HD resolution which we though Samsung will upgrade in the J5 Prime. The 5 Inch HD display has 1280*720 pixels, the smartphone also have the 2.5 D curve glass finish which was not there on the older model.
The Samsung J5 Prime is powered by a 1.4 GHz Quad Core processor (unspecified) and comes with 2 GB of RAM. The device runs on the Android Marshmallow 6.0 along with the Samsung touch wiz UI. The Samsung J5 Prime boasts of S Bike mode for a disturbance free driving experience as the smartphone reverts to incoming calls.
The Samsung J5 Prime biggest let down compared to the older J5 2016 is the battery capacity. Samsung has reduced the battery from 3100 mAH to just 2400 mAH which can impact the battery life of the device when compared to the older smartphone.
Samsung and batteries are not going well together.
The Samsung J5 Prime comes with 8.1 mm thickness and has 143 grams weight. The Samsung J5 Prime comes with a 13 Mega pixel rear camera and has auto-focus and led flash support for the rear camera with f/1.9 aperture lens.
The smartphone has a 5 mega pixel front camera to click selfies and comes with f/2.2 aperture lens.
The Samsung J5 Prime has 16 GB of internal storage and it can be expanded to 256 GB using a micro-sd card. The Dual Sim smartphone has 4G LTE/VOLTE support along with 3G and 2G connectivity options.
Overall the battery is a let-down for the new Samsung J5 Prime and the positive addition is the fingerprint scanner to the device.
