Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) leaks out entirely: official pictures and specs revealed

The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) might not be official just yet, but it has now leaked out so fully, it might as well have been. The new Galaxy J3 (2017) is expected to be the cheapest of Samsung's affordable J series, and the particular model that has leaked is Samsung SM-J330, which will be launched in Europe and other markets internationally. Keep in mind that a phone going by the name J3 (2017) on AT&T or Galaxy J3 Emerge on Sprint is already available in the United States, but carries a different design and the Sprint version runs on an older version of Android.

While last year's Galaxy J3 featured an all-plastic body, this time around, the Galaxy J3 (2017) features a metal back plate and a more sturdy construction. The J3 (2017) is said to come with a 5-inch LCD display with an HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels.

This is a basic phone with its main focus on affordability and value for money, so keep that in mind while looking at its specs highlights right below:

What's notable is that this new J3 (2017) comes with Android 7.0 Nougat, while even phones in the mid-range A (2017) series still run on Android 6.x Marshmallow.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) price is expected to be set at around €200 euro, and the release date should happen within the next couple of weeks.

Maybe I'm different, but I like this design more than S8/G6...
