The refreshed version of the Galaxy J3 handset has been in the rumor mill for a while, recently surfacing on import/export tracker Zauba. Now, the time has come for the first press render to show up.

Samsung Galaxy J3 is one of the many handsets that should get an update soon, and this one has been in the rumor mill for a while. After the initial rumors, the Galaxy J3 (2017) surfaced on Zauba when it was imported for testing. After a while, it reached the FCC as well, just to end up on Geekbench a bit later. Now, we finally get to see a press render that shows more than the sketch spotted on FCC.

Nothing is official yet, but Geekbench tests are usually pretty close to the truth. In this case, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) was spotted on the benchmark website packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, a 5-inch display, 2 GB of memory, and a 2,600 mAh battery. This handset is also expected to offer 4G LTE connectivity and to run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow (with TouchWiz on top, of course).

Unfortunately, the press render of the upcoming Galaxy J3 does not show anything out of the ordinary. After all, this is just another affordable Samsung Galaxy handset. We will probably hear more about it in the coming weeks, so stay tuned if you are a fan of the Galaxy J series.

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.
