Samsung Galaxy J3 photos show up: nothing surprising

Samsung Galaxy J3 photos show up: nothing surprising
The Galaxy J3 is an unannounced Samsung smartphone that will, most likely, be launched in the near future. Not long ago, evidence of the handset's existence showed up on benchmarking websites, and even at the FCC. But it's only now that we can actually take a look at the Galaxy J3 (model number SM-J3109), thanks to the fact that photos of it have been revealed by China's Telecommunications Equipment Certification Center (also known as TENAA).

The Galaxy J3 is a rather modest device, and doesn't look too different from other low- or mid-end Samsung smartphones. The handset measures 142.2 x 71.6 x 7.9 mm, weighs 140 grams, and sports a 5-inch AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels. It's powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, further featuring LTE connectivity, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, a 5 MP front-facing camera, and an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is on board.

We assume that the Samsung Galaxy J3 won't cost too much once it's released. We don't know if the smartphone will be available globally, or just in select markets, but we're going to let you know when we find out.

$1000 iphone 6s looks like most previous iphone versions. And you want to think a phone built for cheap price to be different???

Not really? They improved the camera into 8MP to 12MP. 6000 to 7000 all., etc etc.... While in Samsung mid-range since 2012-2015 are the same screen resolution, display, camera MP.

In other article here , some hours before, you could read than MPs don't improve the camera.:) But you still insist that low-range Samsung phones like this , are not so good as $1000 mid-range iPhones ? BTW the mid-range Samsung phones have more than 12MP. And guess who have used 7000 before Apple?

They improved the camera, aluminum body and etc. I didn't say that they are the first to have those specs, features.

Hell yeah! Samsung produce more mid-range phone and killed the high-end of your own. Happy to see Samsung smartphone will be gone soon as they predicted.

"will be gone soon as they predicted" Who are 'they'? And what 'they' say about the iphones?

This is the prediction made by Ben Bajarin, who says that the manufacturer will face The Innovator's Dilemma. This occurs when an early innovator, like Samsung, faces off in the marketplace with rivals making much cheaper products with the same features as the innovator's products carry. As Bajarin notes, "When you ship the same operating system as your competition, you are only as good as their lowest price." The analyst says that eventually, the competitors' "just good enough" products start selling as the early innovator stops marketing the premium innovations that got it to the top in the first place. iPhone still the same because they don't have competitive in iOS

Do you really believe , that if Android OEMs make their high-end phones better and better and cheaper and cheaper(because of the competition there), also make their mid-low-range-price phones better than iPhones,- it will not affect Apple??? Even the most faithful zombies have limit. Come on!:)
