Samsung Galaxy J3 available now at Virgin Mobile, lands Monday at Boost Mobile
Starting today, prepaid carrier Virgin Mobile is adding the Samsung Galaxy J3 to its lineup. Fellow prepaid operator Boost Mobile will be offering the phone to its subscribers starting this coming Monday. With both Virgin and Boost owned by Sprint, the price of the Galaxy J3 is $179 on both carriers. The handset features a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen carrying a 720 x 1280 (HD) resolution.

Powering the device is the Snapdragon 410 SoC, which contains a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 306 GPU. 1.5GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of internal storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is accessible for those requiring additional memory. The back of the phone features a 5MP camera, while the front-facing selfie snapper weighs in at 2MP. A 2600mAh battery keeps the generators humming, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

AT&T's Cricket should soon be chirping about the Galaxy J3, along with AT&T and Sprint. Keep in mind that the version of the phone offered in the states differs from the model sold in China. In that country, the device is known as the Samsung Galaxy J3 (6) and comes equipped with a smaller amount of internal storage (8GB), but a better camera combo (8MP/5MP).
