A couple of days ago we spotted the still-unannounced Galaxy J3 (2017) in the online database of Geekbench, and as usual this meant we were able to share some of its specs with you. However, Geekbench is far from having the most complete info screen for devices that run it, so there were still a lot of things up in the air.
Not so anymore, though, because now the same J3 (2017), with the same SM-J330 model number, has also been put through the paces of GFXBench. And this benchmark has more information about the handset's innards, thankfully.
As you can see, the Galaxy J3 (2017) comes with a 4.8-inch 720p touchscreen, a 12 MP main camera, and a 5 MP front-facing snapper. Both of those top out at 1080p for video recording.
The new J3 is powered by Samsung's Exynos 7570, according to Geekbench, and GFXBench lets us know that there's a 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU in there, aided by 2GB of RAM. Internal storage is 16GB, almost certainly expandable. The phone will run Android 7.0 Nougat when it finally becomes available. Hopefully that happens soon.
Hopefully pricing will be in range of 100-110 dollars.
Will it have usb type-c, nfc, smart view for connection to a smart tv? If so, it's an interesting device for me, given a!so the uncommon compact size.
