Samsung’s budget offering, the Galaxy J3 Prime, has landed at T-Mobile where it can be purchased for $150. However, if you are a T-Mobile postpaid customer, you can get the phone for $6 down and $6 per month for 24 months.
In addition to the EMI option, the Magenta carrier has rolled out another plan which gives instant discount of $75 on the smartphone bringing the price down to as low as $69. Notably, T-Mobile’s subsidiary MetroPCS is also selling the Galaxy J3 Prime at the mentioned price.
Being a budget phone, the Galaxy J3 Prime specsheet is just worth its price. The only notable feature among the entry-level specifications is the Android 7.0 Nougat OS. Other features include a a 5-inch HD display with 1280×720 pixel resolution, a quad-core Exynos 7570 processor paired with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB in-built storage. On the imaging front, we find a 5MP back camera and a meagre 2MP selfie shooter. Power comes courtesy a 2,600mAH battery.
In hindsight, the specifications of Galaxy J3 Prime totally fits into the specsheet of Galaxy Amp Prime 2 launched via Cricket Wireless about a week ago which was also priced at $150. Thus, it looks like Galaxy J3 Prime and Galaxy Amp Prime 2 are one and the same device launched by different monikers via the two carriers.
