Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) visits the FCC; April launch is expected

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) visits the FCC; April launch is expected
Having already been certified in China by that country's TENAA regulatory agency, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) has just paid a visit to the FCC in the U.S.  Expected to be released this coming April (the 13th of the month to be precise), the phone carries a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. A quad-core 1.4GHz CPU powers the unit, and speculation has the Snapdragon 430 chipset under the hood. That would mean that the Adreno 304 GPU will crunch the graphics.

An 8MP camera adorns the backside of the handset, and a 5MP front-facing camera takes care of selfies and video chats. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable native storage. The 64GB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional storage. Keeping the lights on is a 2600mAh battery, and Android 7.0 is pre-installed. For those who keep track of such things, the model number is SM-J327P.

As usual, the FCC did not release much information about the phone other than the FCC label and the placement of it on the unit. In this case, the sticker will be placed inside the battery compartment. Now, we sit back and wait for April.

Oh look, another crappy Samsung phone that has a high probability of exploding. What is going on in these guys' heads? They are trying to now flood the market with all of tehse worthless phones to save face, too bad they need to fix and identify the problem first before they can ever regain relevance. Everyone i talk to says they are staying away from crappy samsung products for good. All honesty, I hope they can make a return, but guess what? They just don't posess the brain power to do so, with their cheap butts. They will never learn because they don't want to. They are epically failing since they can't handle multipel things at once.
