Samsung Galaxy J3 lands its FCC certification

Samsung Galaxy J3 lands its FCC certification
Earlier this month, we told you about the Samsung Galaxy J3 (SM-J3109), an entry-level handset sporting a 5-inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. Now, it appears that the device has received its FCC certification. This means that the handset could soon be made official by Samsung. While not much information was released by the Feds, the documents reveal that the phone was tested for LTE, 3G, and 2G connectivity.

The handset did make it through the GFXBench benchmark test three weeks ago, which is when we first brought the device to your attention. From that test, we expect the unit to feature the 64-bit Snapdragon 410 SoC under the hood, containing a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 306 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside, along with 8GB of expandable native memory. An 8MP camera can be found on the back of the phone, while the front-facing 5MP snapper handles selfies and video chats. Android 5.1.1 or Android 6.0 will be pre-installed when the phone is released.

Pricing and availability for the Galaxy J3 will be revealed once Samsung officially takes the wraps off of the device. In September, the manufacturer unveiled the Samsung Galaxy J2 in India, priced at $129. That phone comes with a 4.7-inch screen, carrying a 540 x 960 (qHD) resolution. Inside that model is the Exynos 3475 chipset.

Thanks for the tip!

Not bad. Not bad at all. This seems a little better than the moto E LTE and priced very similarly. Off-topic: PA, I'm getting redirected to an ad page of hero motocorp. Please take some action.
