Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge coming to Sprint in January
This upcoming handset is, basically, a Galaxy J3 (2016) powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC, but also featuring 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. Other carriers are expected to sell it as the Galaxy J3 (2017).
Samsung Galaxy J3 will soon reach its second generation, but the upcoming Galaxy J3 (2017) will apparently launch on Sprint as the Galaxy J3 Emerge. The information is not official yet but comes from an exclusive report by VentureBeat, who managed to review a user manual of the handset.
The original Galaxy J3 is powered by a quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, next to 1.5 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage. The Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge/Galaxy J3 (2017) is expected to come with the same 5-inch 720p display, but packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB internal storage. It will launch running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, powered by a 2,600 mAh battery. The cameras remain low-end, offering only 2 MP and 5 MP.
Sprint and its prepaid brands Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile are expected to launch the Galaxy J3 Emerge on January 6. We will get back to it once that happens, so stay tuned for the pricing details.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
