This Tuesday Samsung announced new Galaxy J5 Pro smartphone, an upgraded variant of Galaxy J5.

The J5 Pro’s key feature is its RAM and storage increase while other almost all other specs are the same as previously launched Galaxy J5. Galaxy J5 Pro comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage which is a bump from 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage of the previously launched Galaxy J5.
