Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 specs: Android 7.1.1, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, quad-core processor and 5.0″ HD TFT display

About two weeks back, we got word of the Galaxy J3 2017 clearing FCC. The device has now made it to TENAA giving as a clear picture of the specs it packs in. The smartphone has been roaming the rumor mill and visiting many certification agencies for about two months now.

We all know that the Galaxy J series is budget oriented. A new and welcome change to the device is that it will launch with Android 7.1.1 Nougat on board as compared to the 2016 Galaxy J3 which came with Lollipop when Marshmallow was out.

Though Android 7.1.1 is currently being tested by Samsung for its flagship sets like Galaxy S8 and S7, the TENAA listing reveals that the lower end J3 2017 will rock Android 7.1.1 Nougat. That’s great, if you ask us.

The screen on the other hand has taken a step backwards with the Galaxy J3 2017 featuring only a 5-inch 720p TFT display unlike its predecessor, which had an AMOLED panel. The battery on board hasn’t changed either and remains on the same 2600mAh juice pack. While, Samsung launched a Galaxy J3 Pro in India with a Super AMOLED panel, whose specs are based on the 2016 J3 model
