Leaked info suggests Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) packs Exynos chipset and runs Android 7.0 Nougat

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) is the lesser-featured Galaxy J series smartphone the South Korean company plans to launch this year. We've already seen the Galaxy J7 (2017)going on sale in the United States under various names, while the Galaxy J5 (2017) has just been granted FCC's approval and is likely to make its debut very soon.

The entry-level Galaxy J3 (2017) doesn't pack any fancy features that would make it stand out from other handsets in the same price range. However, it looks like Samsung has decided to include Android 7.0 Nougat on board.

The smartphone that goes by model number SM-J330 has been recently listed at Geekbench, which is why we've been able to learn a few more details about what's inside the Galaxy J3 (2017).

First off, it looks like the smartphone will be equipped with a quad-core core Exynos 7570 processor, paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage. Our previous report about the Galaxy J3 (2017) might have been inaccurate since it talked about a Marshmallow-powered phone with just 1.5GB RAM inside and an octa-core Snapdragon 435 CPU.

Unfortunately, we're not offered any details about the phone's camera, but it's worth noting that its predecessor, the Galaxy J3 (2016) comes with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a secondary 5-megapixel shooter on the front. The Galaxy J3 (2017) should pack at least similar cameras.

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) is expected to arrive in the United States, just like the Galaxy J7 (2017), as most major carriers will offer the phone.
