Samsung Galaxy J3 benchmarked – new affordable handset coming soon?

Samsung lifted the lid on the Galaxy J2, a new entry-level smartphone, in India last month, which is another addition to Samsung’s affordable Galaxy J series. It seems, however, that the South Korean tech giant isn’t done introducing new entry-level devices as the Galaxy J3 has just been benchmarked.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 (model number SM-J3109) went through not one but two benchmark sites – GFXBench and Geekbench (see screenshots above). The device seems to be larger and more powerful than the newly unveiled Galaxy J2. The Galaxy J3 rocks a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (HD), which is larger and clearer that the 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels of the J2. In the photography department, the device comes with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for taking selfies and video chat. For your storage needs, it offers 8 GB of internal memory. For more storage options, it comes with microSD card support. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64-bit quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.2 GHz, coupled with 1 GB of RAM. It runs Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) in the tests, although we’re not sure if the J3 will come with Lollipop pre-installed when launched, since Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) is now being rolled out by Google.

Currently, it is yet to be determined when the Samsung Galaxy J3 will be launched. Additionally, pricing still remains a mystery. Although we still don’t know when the device will be available or when it will be sold in stores, we’re certain that it will be an affordable offering, since it will be part of the Galaxy J series. Currently, Samsung’s Galaxy J series consists of the Galaxy J1, the newly unveiled Galaxy J2, the Galaxy J5, and the Galaxy J7.
