Samsung Galaxy J3 to be launched by AT&T and Sprint

Samsung Galaxy J3 to be launched by AT&T and Sprint
Announced last month in China, where it's curiously called Galaxy J3(6), the Samsung Galaxy J3 is reportedly coming to the US sometime next year. According to Venture Beat, AT&T and Sprint will both carry the Galaxy J3. Apparently, the handset will be offered on contract, as well as on prepay via Cricket (which is owned by AT&T), Boost Mobile, and Virgin Mobile (Boost and Virgin are Sprint subsidiaries).

While there's no word on how much the Samsung Galaxy J3 will cost in the US, it's safe to assume that the handset isn't going to be expensive - that's because its features are not what you'd call top notch.

The Galaxy J3 sports a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor. It's also got LTE connectivity, 1.5 GB of RAM, and a 2600 mAh battery. The US version of the Galaxy J3 will have 16 GB of internal memory, instead of just 8 GB (like the Chinese model does). On the downside, it's going to come with a 5 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera (instead of 8 MP and 5 MP, respectively).

At the moment, the Galaxy J3 runs Android Lollipop, but, who knows, perhaps Samsung will update it to Android 6.0 Marshmallow before launching it in the US.
