Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) certified in China by regulatory agency TENAA

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) certified in China by regulatory agency TENAA
Samsung just loves mixing things up with the Samsung Galaxy J3. The model launched in the U.S. back in the beginning of this year with a little more memory than the version released in China. The U.S.model, which just made it to Verizon earlier this month, doesn't carry quite the same camera combo as the Samsung Galaxy J3 (6) does in the world's largest smartphone market.

This morning, a new version of the Samsung Galaxy J3 received certification from China's TENAA regulatory agency, sporting a metal build instead of the previous polycarbonate body. There are two variants of the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017), and both feature a 5-inch screen. The AMOLED display on the SM-J3110 has a 720 x 1280 HD resolution, while the AMOLED display on the SM-J3119 comes with an FHD (1080 x 1920) resolution.

Otherwise, the Galaxy J3 (2017) carries a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and is powered by a 2600mAh battery. The phone weighs 138 grams, the same as the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016). At 8mm, the new model is slightly thicker, and comes with a little more RAM (2GB) than the older polycarbonate version.  Additionally, a 8MP/5MP camera combo on the Galaxy J3 (2017) replaces the 5MP/2MP combo found on the Galaxy J3 (2016). Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.

There is no word on when Samsung will wave the magic wand to make the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) official. But now that Sammy can scratch TENAA certification off of its "things to do" list, an unveiling probably isn't far from happening.
