Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) shows its head, leaks almost full specs


We’ve all seen the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) and the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) but today, we get to take a first pink look at the youngest sibling of the Samsung J-series phones, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017).

Perhaps the cheapest of the bunch, the J3 will sport the lowest level of specs in its innards but instead of the full-plastic look of its predecessor, the Galaxy J3 (2016) the J3 (2017) will have a full metal back plate.


Since the phone is focused on affordability, the specs are listed as below:

  • Exynos 7570 SoC processor
  • 2GB/3GB RAM
  • 16GB/32GB expandable storage
  • 5.0-inch LCD HD display
  • 16MP f/2.0 main camera w/ 4K video recording
  • 16MP front camera
  • Dual SIM, Metal back plate, NFC
  • Android 7.0 Nougat
  • 2600 mAh battery

Yes you read it right, even as a low-budget phone it will still come with the Android 7.0 Nougat. Based on what can be seen, the phone will also be available in Blue and Black options.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) will be retailed at around €200 (~RM1000) and will probably be unveiled in a couple of weeks along with its elder siblings the Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017). The Malaysian release is expected to be announced shortly soon after.
