Samsung has just trademarked two new smartphones, the Galaxy J3 Star and Galaxy J7 Star. These two names have popped up on the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademarks Office) website. Both names were trademarked back on February 2, and both have been filed under the 'telephones and smartphones' category, which is not surprising considering that these will clearly be smartphones, read on.
We did not see any leaks or rumors regarding the Galaxy J3 Star or Galaxy J7 Star thus far, even though a list of the company's smartphones leaked recently. Truth be said, there are quite a few codenames on that list that were impossible to decipher, so it is easily possible that two codenames from that list represent these two handsets. In any case, the Galaxy J series of devices is inferior to the company's Galaxy A series of phones, you can see these devices as Samsung's entry-level offerings if you'd like. Samsung had released some Star-branded devices in the past, but we have not seen any Star-branded devices in the Galaxy J series of phones, so the two devices that got trademarked will be the first ones. That being said, Samsung had introduced a number of Galaxy J3 devices thus far, the Galaxy J3 (2016), Galaxy J3 (2017), Galaxy J3 Pro, and the Galaxy J3 Emerge. The same can be said for the Galaxy J7, actually, as about eight Galaxy J7-branded devices landed as well, including the Galaxy J7 (2017), Galaxy J7 Max, Galaxy J7 Pro, and so on.
No info was shared regarding specs of the two upcoming Galaxy J3 and J7 smartphones, but it's safe to expect that they'll sport entry-level specifications. The two devices will probably ship with 2GB of RAM, well, at least the Galaxy J3 Star probably will, while we can also expect to see an HD or an HD+ display on the Galaxy J3 Star. The Galaxy J7 Star will probably include a fullHD or a fullHD+ panel, though. Both devices will probably be made out of metal, though do keep in mind all of this is pure speculation based on other Galaxy J3 and J7-branded devices. These two handsets are expected to land in the near future, but no specific timeframe was given.
