This is what Sandeep Singh Arora, Vice President of Online Business, Samsung India had to say:

This is the first time Samsung is launching an online exclusive product, Galaxy J3 Pro, on Paytm Mall. Galaxy J3 Pro delivers powerful performance, outstanding display and also packs in consumer centric features developed at our R&D centers in India. This launch will give Paytm Mall consumers the opportunity to buy ‘Galaxy J Series’ which is the largest selling range in India.

As for optics, the smartphone features an 8MP rear camera with single LED flash and a 5MP front camera. The smartphone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with Samsung’s UI on top.
