Camera

A simple camera setup is adopted by Samsung on this one. Gifting users with a 5MP shooter at the rear with LED Flash to further ensure clearer images indoors or in low-light situations. The rear camera is housed in something like a different design strip from what is attainable in other parts of the device. Its front-facing selfie camera on the other side is a 2MP shooter.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime device comes with a 2600mAh battery which can last an average half of a day. The device also supports 4G LTE connection but only provides space for a Single SIM.
