A possible model of Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) has been listed on GFXBench, with its benchmark results and specifications listed on the benchmark's website. The model listed on GFXBench is designated with model number SM-J330, which is almost the same model number listed on the Geekbench Browser's online database this month. According to GFXBench's website, the rumored Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) model is powered by a quad-core 1.4GHz ARM Cortex A53 SoC, which could possibly be the 14nm Samsung-developed Exynos 7570. Still within the SoC is the ARM Mali T720 GPU, which will power the smartphone's 5-inch 720p display. Even if the GPU is among the lower-end offerings of ARM, people buying the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) may still expect a respectable graphics performance from the smartphone due to its relatively low resolution. Also according to the GFXBench listing, Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) will likely have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which further corroborates with previous rumors.
The GFXBench listing of the possible Samsung Galaxy J3 unit also provides additional information about the camera specifications of the smartphone. The smartphone will have a 13-megapixel rear camera while its front camera will have a 5-megapixel sensor, with both cameras capable of recording 1080p video. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) will possibly come out of the box with Android 7.0 Nougat, though users may expect significant delays in the delivery of the latest OS updates to their smartphones given the low-end nature of the device. Nonetheless, Android 7.0 Nougat provides owners of the latest model of the Samsung Galaxy J3 features like the improved interactions with app notifications and improvements in battery life due to changes in the Doze feature. Given the track record of the smartphone giant on the 2016 model of the Samsung Galaxy J3, owners can expect monthly security updates delivered to their smartphones.
Last month, devices claimed to be the unlocked and T-Mobile variants of the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) passed the certification process of the FCC, so consumers in the US may expect the latest model of Samsung Galaxy J3 to become available soon. Previous rumors have also indicated that the smartphone may be available in white, black, and gold models, with the smartphones coming with single-SIM and dual-SIM variants. However, there is no clear information regarding the availability and pricing of the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) at this point.
