The popular tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) has just tweeted a press shot of the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017). It clearly hints that the phone which goes by the model number SM-J327P is on the verge of a global release. Last month, the phone appeared on a benchmarking website Geekbench. It also passed the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification in the U.S a couple of weeks later. Prior to all these things, the Galaxy J3 (2017) had cleared TENAA certification back in June this year.
If rumours are to believe, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) has a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen with 1280 x 720 pixels HD resolution and the pixel density of 294 pixels per inch (PPI). There is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor powering this phone which is clocked at 1.3GHz. Accompanying the processor is 2GB of RAM and Adreno 304 GPU for graphics. It embraces 16GB memory which is expandable up to 64GB via microSD card.
The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) is said to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. This phone is likely to house an 8-megapixel rear camera paired with a 5-megapixel selfie camera. It may keep up with a 2600mAh battery. Earlier, the phone was expected to be unveiled globally in April 2017. However, considering this development, there is a possibility that Samsung may unveil this phone worldwide shortly.
In October last month, over 8 SM-J327P models were imported in India, allegedly for testing purpose.
