Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Pro

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Pro specification


The launch of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Pro is an indicator that Samsung has always focused on maintaining its dominance in the entry-level market. This smartphone is also referred to as the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro in other markets. It was launched worldwide in January 2018 and is now available on the Kenyan market. It comes with a new body design that is different from its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy J2 2017, and also differs from the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Plus. Some of the key features of this phone include a 5.0-inch screen, 1.5GB of RAM and a 2600mAh battery. Here you can get specifications and prices for the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro in Kenya.


Design and Display

It is one of the few cheap phones in Kenya with the Super AMOLED screen. Although the resolution is not impressive (540 pixels x 960 pixels), it is acceptable for a budget phone with a 5.0-inch screen. We cannot say much about the design of the Galaxy Grand Prime Pro 2018. It follows the usual design of Samsung, which is used in other smartphones in the budget range.

Hardware, software and performance

This device is powered by Snapdragon 425 chipset with 1.5GB of RAM. Works with Android v7.1 Nougat and With this phone you should expect that all common applications will work smoothly. You can play “easy” games without delay. However, if you are a hardcore player, the J2 Pro may not be the best phone for you.

You get 16 GB of internal storage space. While this may be enough for many people, it is a little disappointing for some as most phones under 20K that hit the market in 2018 have 32GB of internal memory. Fortunately, there is a dedicated microSD slot that supports cards up to 256GB.



This phone comes with an 8MP rear view camera and a 5MP front camera. This is also disappointing as many phones under 20k that hit the market in 2018 are equipped with 13MP cameras. Both the front camera and the rear camera have an LED flash for shooting in low light.


The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Pro battery contains 2600mAH. Of course, this can take the phone through a day of moderate use with its powerful Snapdragon 425 chipset and Super AMOLED panel.
