Surprisingly, Samsung hasn’t yet made any official announcement regarding this. However, the AT&T listing has revealed all the official specifications of the Galaxy J3 2017.

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) Specifications

Coming to the specifications, the Galaxy J3 (2017) is just a minor improvement over the Galaxy J3 (2016). The former sports a 5-inch HD (1280 x 720) display. The 2017 iteration of the Galaxy J3 comes with a brushed metal finished exterior which looks quite refreshing. The phone measures at 140.9 mm x 70.1 mm x 8.6 mm and carrying a weight of around 148 grams.

Moving inside, the Samsung Exynos 7570 powers up the Galaxy J3 (2017). The 64-bit quad-core processor is manufactured using the advanced 14 nm FinFET process. It packs four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.4 GHz each. A single core Mali T720 GPU handles the graphics.

Pricing and Expected India Release Date

AT&T will charge you $179.9 (Rs. 11,500 approx.) for an unlocked unit of the Galaxy J3 (2017). However, we presume that the phone will sell at a much lower price in India.
