As the release dates of the new Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 nears, the phone has now appeared on benchmarking website GFXBench with all the core details confirmed.
While there’s no known date as to when the Galaxy J3 2017 will actually be unveiled, the tech giant already unveiled a variant of the phone in the U.S. dubbed Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge. Apparently, the company is now getting ready to unveil the global version of the phone and so far, we have a clue of what it’ll bring to the budget smartphone world.
From the benchmarks, it appears that Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 will ship with a 4.8-inch (or 5-inch) display screen with an HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution. Under the hood, the J3 2017 will come in with an Exynos 7570 quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz and is paired with a Mali-T720 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Just so as you know, the Galaxy J3 Emerge has a Snapdragon 425 or Snapdragon 430 with the same clock speed and a slightly smaller 1.5GB RAM.
As for the storage, the Galaxy J3 2017 will come with 16GB of onboard memory with room to expand it via a microSD card slot that can house up to 256GB. In the camera department, the Galaxy J3 Emerge lags behind its counterpart, where the GFXBench listing confirms a 12MP snapper for the main camera and a 5MP for the front shooter. This is much better than the 5MP main camera and 2MP selfie camera found on the American version of the handset.
As per the benchmarks, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 will ship with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, which is also another area it trounces the J3 Emerge with its year-old Android Marshmallow. To keep it alive will be a decent 2600mAh battery unit that should be charged via a microUSB port.
As noted earlier, Samsung has not mentioned a thing about the release date, but it shouldn’t be long before the Galaxy J3 2017 hits the global market. We’ll update you when it does!
