Samsung has been working hard on its upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, but some of its efforts have also been focused on other phones in the low and mid ranges. One such device is the Galaxy J3 (2017), which was recently spotted on Geekbench by PriceRaja.
Some of the phone's specs have already been revealed and the Galaxy J3 (2017) doesn’t appear to come with any impressive features, as the Geekbench listing shows it will have just 2GB of RAM and will run a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor.
The smartphone will be powered by Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and it seems to have a 5-inch display and a 2,600mAh battery. It’s an entry-level smartphone and details on its pricing and availability haven’t been made public yet.
The Galaxy J3 (2017) might share some specs with the Galaxy J3 Pro
The listing also indicates that the smartphone will have similar specs to the Galaxy J3 Pro that Samsung launched in China earlier this year. The device had 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch Super AMOLED display, and an 8MP rear camera with a 5MP unit in the front.
There’s not much information available on when Samsung will unveil the phone carrying the code name SM-J327P, but we expect it to be announced together with other phones in the series. Another smartphone in the Galaxy J range is the Galaxy J7 (2017), which was recently spotted on Zauba, India’s online database of imported units.
The smartphone carries the codename SM-J727V and appears to have a 5.5-inch Full HD display and 3GB of RAM. It seems to be a bit more powerful than the Galaxy J3 (2017), but it’s still unclear which type of Exynos processor it will feature.
Nonetheless, this smartphone model could come with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP camera sensor in the front for snapping pictures and taking selfies. In addition, it could draw power from a 3,000mAh battery and might ship with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top.
