Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018) spotted on GFXbench
A 2018 model of what could likely be the next version of the Samsung Galaxy J3 has been spotted on benchmarking site, GFXBench. The new phone seems to carry the model number SM-J337 and going by this year's Samsung Galaxy J3, which had the model number SM-J330F, the new listing could very well be the 2018 version of the Galaxy J3.
The Galaxy J3 is a low-end variant in the immensely popular J-series line. The GFXBench page for the yet-to-be-announced phone lists most of its specifications and by virtue of being at the bottom rung of the mid-range segment, the specs are nothing to write home about. Apparently, the new J3 variant comes with a 5-inch HD display (1280x720) with 5 finger multi-touch gesture support. The device runs on Samsung's version of Android Nougat 7.1.1. Powering the phone is a quad-core Cortex A53 based CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz, which is accompanied by the Mali-G71 GPU. The phone sports 2GB of RAM with 16GB of onboard storage of which only 9GB is available for use. The camera department comprises of an 8MP rear camera that can record videos in FHD (no HDR support) and a 5MP selfie camera. Along with Bluetooth and WiFi, most of the commonly found sensors seem to be included.
The GFXBench listing does not have information about battery capacity or availability of expandable memory, although, it'd be safe to assume that they would be similar to what we've seen in this year's model. There could also be market specific variants such as the Galaxy J3 Emerge, which was specific to the US market. Pricing should be more or less on the lines of the current Galaxy J3 phones.
