Details about the next year Samsung Galaxy J3 might have already been leaked

Although 2017 is not over yet, most smartphone companies are already working on their next year's lineups. Just like it did in the last couple of years, Samsung plans to launch an entry-level Galaxy J handset.

Obviously, we're talking about the Galaxy J3, one of the cheapest Android smartphones to be released by Samsung each year. However, that doesn't mean that the phone isn't improved each year.

Unfortunately, the 2018 model does not seem to pack too many improvements over the current Galaxy J3 (2017) version. According to a listing up at GFXBench, the Galaxy J3 (2018), also known as Samsung SM-J337), is supposed to feature a 5-inch display with HD (720p) resolution.

Also, the smartphone will pack a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, probably an Exynos, coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory (9GB user available). Strangely, the phone is listed with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, despite the fact that the Galaxy J3 (2017) has a better 13-megapixel snapper.

Last but not least, Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018) is likely to ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat on board and an improved Mali-G71 GPU (graphics processing unit).

Keep in mind that some of the specs listed at GFXBench might not come in line with the final product, but at least we know what Samsung plans to improve and what's likely to remain the same.
