Samsung intros the affordable Galaxy J3 and Galaxy J7 (2018) in the US
Samsung has just announced the Galaxy J3 and J7 (2018) will be available for purchase in the United States through select retailers and carriers starting in early June. Both affordable smartphones come with Samsung Knox on board for extra protection, as well as direct access to Samsung's Customer Care service.

The South Korean company hasn't yet revealed any info on prices and availability, but carriers and retailers in the country are supposed to make their own announcements before the smartphones go on sale.

The Galaxy J3 (2018) comes with a 5-inch HD (720p) resolution, whereas the Galaxy J7 (2018) has a slightly larger 5.5-inch display with the same resolution. There are differences at the camera level too, as the cheaper Galaxy J3 has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie snapper, while the Galaxy J7 has two 13-megapixel cameras, one on the front, and a secondary one on the back.

We'll share more details about the availability and prices of these two budget-friendly smartphones once we get them from local carriers and retailers, so stay tuned.

Xiaomi is suck at having US LTE bands. I'd consider their phones if it was even an option.

It is important to note that they aren't successors of SM-J330 (Galaxy J3 2017) and SM-J730 (Galaxy J7 2017), respectively, but SM-J327 (Galaxy J3 Prime) and SM-J727 (Galaxy J7 Prime USA)
