If you’re familiar with the Samsung Galaxy J series, the Korean tech giant’s mid-range smartphone line, then you might know that the Samsung Galaxy J3 first launched way back in 2015. However, due to the success the device had on the market, Samsung brought it out again in 2016 in a revamped variant, and it plans to do the same in 2017. Naturally, quite a bit of hype has been created around the alleged re-launch already.
Rumor Has It…
…that the new and improved Samsung Galaxy J3 will run on the latest version of Android, the 7.0 Nougat operating system. This is pretty great news for those of us that want all the benefits of a top-shelf device for only a fraction of the cost. This has been revealed according to a listing an anonymous internet user found on famed website WiFi Alliance. The device appeared on the website under model number SM-J330F.
However, nothing official has been announced by Samsung about this alleged re-launch of the Galaxy J3. Therefore, it’s important to remember that this is pure speculation, and there is nothing else to go on except the aforementioned WiFi Alliance listing. Always take these kinds of rumors with a grain of salt, and don’t expect them all to come true.
However, if this one does turn out to be true, the specs of the phone will still be nothing spectacular in order to justify its thrifty price tag. But for those of us out there looking for a cheaper alternative, the new Samsung Galaxy J3 could be exactly what we need: a simple, functioning device that can perform all the functions of a pricier one, and also runs on the latest version of Android.
