Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) discovered on GFXBench just two days after being found on Geekbench

Back in October, we told you to expect the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) in April. At the same time, the handset received certification from the FCC. While it doesn't appear as though the device will be introduced this month, the phone (with the model number SM-J330) has just surfaced on the GFXBench benchmark site. And that means we now get a chance to peruse the latest rumored specs of the handset.

According to GFXBench, the Galaxy J3 (2017) features a 5-inch display carrying a resolution of 720 x 1280 (HD). The Exynos 7570 SoC is under the hood with a quad-core 1.4GHz CPU, and the Mali-T720 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of native storage. A 12MP camera adorns the back of the device, while a 5MP front-facing shooter handles selfies and video chats. Android 7.0 is pre-installed.
A couple of days ago, we told you that the SM-J330 had appeared on the Geekbench website, powered by the same Exynos 7570 chipset that appeared on GFXBench. The phone did not score that highly on the single-core and multi-core tests (631 and 1858 respectively), but keep in mind that the Galaxy J3 (2017) is a low-end model.

And also keep in mind that this is a 14nm SoC built on FinFet fabrication (Same as Snapdragon 821) so the battery life would be ridiculously great considering the lowly clock speed of 1.4Ghz... Similiar Snapdragon 425 and Mediatek MT6737 (Found in Nokia 3) have ancient 28nm HP and LP fabrications respectively which can't touch Samsung's FinFet...! Give it a 3,000mAh battery and this sucker will last for 3 days! #FearTheExynos G'Day!
