Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) coming to AT&T

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)
This affordable Lollipop smartphone should cost less than $200 USD, its features including a 5-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB RAM, 8 MP main camera, and more.

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) launched in China back in late November 2015 and did not get much attention ever since. However, Boost and Virgin Mobile have both added this affordable handset to their portfolio back in January, and now an image showing the AT&T variant has just been spotted.

Notorious leakster Evan Blass posted the image on Twitter yesterday and accompanied it with a very short message that simply says "Samsung Galaxy J3 2016 for AT&T" and nothing else. The specs of the handset are already public and there is nothing special about them - a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB RAM, 5-inch Super AMOLED 720p display, 8 GB or 16 GB internal storage, 2 MP/8 MP cameras, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop (with no chance for an official Marshmallow update).

Since Boost and Virgin Mobile offer this handset for $179 USD, AT&T should price it below $200 USD as well. We will get back to the Galaxy J3 (2016) on AT&T once they introduce it officially.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
