Samsung has finally launched its latest addition to the Galaxy J series of smartphones, the new Galaxy J5 Prime in India yesterday which is slated to sport a small but significant improvement over the Galaxy J5 which was launched earlier this year at a price of approximately Rs.11,000 on Flipkart.
Samsung is banking on two key features to sell its new Galaxy J phones: S Power planning and S Secure. The S Power planning is essentially a battery saving feature that allows users to reserve the phone’s battery for calls, extend its battery time in general and forward calls when it is running low on juice. The S Secure feature, on the other hand, allows users to lock and hide their applications, secure Wi-Fi and create a separate Secure folder for images and applications. Both these features are said to be included in the Galaxy J5 prime.
