It has only been a month since Samsung launched the new Galaxy J (2017) series and the company has already launched a slightly updated model of one of the new handsets. It has announced the Galaxy J5 Pro in Thailand today. The handset is essentially a Galaxy J5 (2017) with minor changes.

The Galaxy J5 (2017) has a metal body and a 1.6GHz processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It also features a 5.2-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a 13-megapixel front and rear camera, Nougat and a 3,000mAh battery.

The Galaxy J5 Pro has the same specifications save for the RAM and internal storage. Instead of the 2GB and 16GB configuration of the Galaxy J5 (2017), the Galaxy J5 Pro features 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

Everything else remains the same. Customers get the same Exynos 7870 processor with Mali-T830 MP2 graphics processor, front-mounted fingerprint sensor and 3,000mAh battery.

Samsung is selling the handset in Thailand for 9,990 Baht which converts to just a hair under $300. The company hasn’t confirmed if it’s going to release the Galaxy J5 Pro elsewhere.

Even if it doesn’t, it’s not like this handset is a significant improvement over the Galaxy J5 (2017). Just buy that if you’re so inclined.
