Samsung has just announced the J3 Pro, a slightly beefed up version of the J3 that (for now, at least) will only be sold in China. The news comes a little more than a week after the Korean company announced an entirely new line of phones destined for China, starting with the C5 and the C7.

The C5 and C7 are higher-end phones, with each sporting full HD Super AMOLED displays, capable cameras, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and all-metal designs that look an awful lot like the iPhone. The new J3 Pro will also have an all-metal body, but the phone is squarely aimed at the lower end of the market. It has a 5-inch 720p display, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 processor, 16GB of storage (expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card), and Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Those are all steps up from the original J3, though, and the J3 Pro is far cheaper than the C5 or the C7 — it will cost just $150 when it goes on sale later this month.
