An updated version of the Samsung Galaxy J3 is likely to debut soon. Last month, there were hints of a Galaxy J3 (2017) receiving certification from Chinese agency TENAA, and now, some official high-quality images have been released that confirm the upcoming smartphone, which is likely to debut on June 18.
For the first time, the South Korean company will update an existing member of the J-series with a date on its name. Galaxy Club, however, notes that the handset could be launched under a different name, Galaxy J4. You can expect the smartphone to launch in China first and then release in other countries.
TENAA documentation had revealed two variants of the phone, namely, SM-J3110 and SM-J3119. While both handsets have a 5-inch AMOLED display, screen resolution is different, with the former boasting 720 x 1280 HD resolution and the latter having 1080 x 1920 HD resolution. While one phone appears with an HD-display, another comes with a full HD display.
Both variants are expected to sport a metal-clad body, as reported by Phone Arena. Renders, however, suggest lack of antenna lines and removable rear cover.
As for the other specs, the alleged J3 (2017) will include a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU clubbed with 2GB of RAM inside. The camera features boast of a 5MP front-facing snapper and an 8MP rear shooter. A 2,600 mAH battery keeps the handset running at many hours’ length. Aside from this, the phone comes pre-installed with Android 5.1.1. However, remember that there is no out-of-the-box Marshmallow for this model.
According to the telecommunication equipment certification center, Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) shows an elegant design on the front, back and edges. The renders further reveal that the smartphone will be available in two color options, gold and grey, as was reported by BGR.
A few months back, the original J3 was launched in India in April. Popular Indian actor Shahid Kapoor is seen in the advertisement riding a bike with the J3 in hand. The smartphone is aimed at bikers with a special biker mode to help them ride their bikes without any distraction.
