Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) Price: Cheaper Variant Now Available [Rumor]; GFXBenching Indicates Release Date By Dec.? [Video]


The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) price may be cheaper than what was previously rumored as the specs listed in GFXBench show a much lower variant of the phone. Moreover, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) release date may be pushed to december given that it already appeared on a benchmarking site.

What do we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017)? The phone has received its clearance from the FCC in the United States, TENAA in China and been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG). Now, the smartphone makes its appearance in GFX Bench, a benchmarking site.

The GFXBenching listed the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) with the model number SM-J327. The device runs on Snapdragon System-on-Chips (SoC), has a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, and features a 5 -inches HD display. It also has 1.5 GB RAM and 16GB internal memory.

Camera-wise, the J3 (2017) has a 5MP rear camera equipped with auto-focus, face recognition, HDR and touch focus. It also has a 2MP front camera ideal for selfie photos. Its software is run by Android 6.01 Marshmallow out-of-the-box as reported by Phone Arena.

The GFXBench listing the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) as SM-J327 instead of the rumored SM-J327P suggest that there may be two variants of the phone. The rendered photos of the device appears to be the lower variant, which puts the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) price lower than earlier estimate of $100 dollars as reported in BGR.

The leaked photos of the J3 (2017) appears to resemble its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) They basically have the same features having the home button below the display together with the capacitive touch buttons. Its power button is also the right side, while the volume adjustment is on the left side.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) comes in a full metal design and buyers can choose from either gold or grey. It should also be noted that a similar phone, possibly a higher variant was also in Geekbench a few weeks ago, but with a different model number SM-J327P.

Samsung has yet to officially announce the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) price and release date. Stay tune for more updates.
