Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) specs revealed in benchmark: Snapdragon 430 CPU, 2GB RAM, Marshmallow
The Galaxy J3 (2017) is not something new for those who have been following our news about Samsung's upcoming products. The unannounced smartphone leaked months ago and it was even spotted at Zauba, the import/export regulatory company.

However, this is the first time that the phone has been put to the test in order to reveal its innards. As expected, Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) is a low-end smartphone that sports a 5-inch display with either HD (720p) or FHD (1080p) resolution. In fact, there's a high chance that Samsung will launch two version of the Galaxy J3 (2017) with different displays.

Thanks to its listing at Geekbench, we now know the Galaxy J3 (2017) will pack a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and 2GB of RAM, which should be more than enough for an entry-level handset.

Another nice surprise is the fact that the smartphone will ship with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow onboard instead of Lollipop, as suggested by previous reports.

Speaking of rumors, Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) is also said to feature an 8-megapixel rear camera and a decent 2,600 mAh battery under the hood.

Even though there's no word on pricing and release date, we expect Samsung to make the Galaxy J3 (2017) available in the coming weeks. The phone should be priced under $200, but that will vary by country.
