The camera is one of its impressive features with both a 16MP front facing and main camera. The device will be powered by a 3000mAh battery.
Budget smartphones make up to be one of the major lineups for Samsung. In the last few years Samsung has picked up its game for their entry-level and mid-range smartphones. Usually the company used to focus more on their high-end flagships but this trend has changed due to increased competition. Rival brands started offering better specs in budget smartphones which threw Samsung off their game. With their A-Series, J-Series and C/C Pro series the company has ensured that they provide the best specs with an affordable price point.
