Samsung’s latest entry-level smartphones – the Galaxy J3 Pro, J5 Pro and J7 Pro are finally here and they come with additional protection in Malaysia. Although they are priced higher than last year’s Galaxy J series, Samsung Malaysia is giving additional 1-year screen protection plus 1-year extended warranty which is the probably first of its kind for the entry-level segment.
The 5.0″ Galaxy J3 Pro is officially priced at RM699 while the 5.2″ Galaxy J5 Pro is priced at RM1,149. The biggest of the lot is the Galaxy J7 Pro with a 5.5″ display and it is going for RM1,299.
