Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 has just been cleared by the FCC ahead of its official release and from the look of things, we’ll have two variants of the phone.
Traditionally, when a device is cleared by the FCC, its official release usually doesn’t take long. With this in mind, it’s about time you started getting your hopes high as far as not just the Galaxy J3 2017 is concerned, but also the rest of the Galaxy J 2017 series, which includes the J5 2017 and J7 2017.
The Galaxy J3 2017 is not making the first appearance ever here on FCC, rather, the phone has also made stops at the Wi-Fi Alliance as well as benchmarking website Geekbench. While the former gave us a clue of what OS and model number the J3 2017 will ship with, the latter took this to the next level by highlighting some of the major specs to expect.
With the FCC listing, it adds more weight to the Wi-Fi Alliance report by confirming that the Galaxy J3 2017 will have a single-SIM and dual-SIM variant. Where the former will have model number SM-J330F, the latter will ship with model number SM-J330F/DS.
As noted earlier, the Geekbench listing gave us a hint of what the Galaxy J3 2017 could bring to the table. Apparently, the phone will be powered by an Exynos 7570 SoC that has a clock speed of 1.4GHz. This processor will then be paired with a RAM of 2GB and for storage, you get 16GB, which should be expandable via a microSD card slot. According to the Wi-Fi Alliance, the J3 2017 – and the rest of the J 2017 series – will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
It’s already past one year since the Galaxy J3 2016 was born and as such, it shouldn’t be long before this year’s model comes to life, especially now that the FCC has cleared it.
