Samsung has just launched the Galaxy J5 Prime in Nepal. The company has priced the phone at Rs. 22,990 and is available for purchase from different retail shops all across the nation.

The Galaxy J5 Prime is a smaller variant of recently launched Galaxy J7 Prime. Unlike the Galaxy J5 and J7, the Prime series are premium versions from Samsung with a full metal jacket and is targetted towards those who are looking for premium looking phones at a midrange price.

The Galaxy J5 Prime sports a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The display is an IPS panel and not the AMOLED which means you will miss out on over saturated punchy colors and battery saving features. The display has a 2.5D glass with gorilla glass  3 protection layered on top. Powering the device is a quad-core processor running at 1.4Ghz (Samsung Exynos 7570 64bit Cortex A53 14nm SoC). It is backed up by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. If the 16GB storage is not enough, you can expand it via microSD card slot upto 256GB.


Camera wise, the Galaxy J5 Prime boasts 13MP rear camera with LED flash and F/1.9 aperture lens. The front houses a 5MP front camera with F/2.2 aperture and unlike the Galaxy J5, the J5 Prime misses out of the front facing LED flash. Fueling the device is a 2400mAh battery which is, of course, non-removable because of its unibody design.

The Galaxy J5 Prime also includes a fingerprint sensor on the home button. Connectivity options include Dual dedicated SIM with 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (no dual-band ac), Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. On the software front, the phone is currently running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
