Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge now up for pre-order
January 6 has passed, but it seems Sprint and its prepaid carriers started the new year with a few problems. While the reasons are and will probably remain unknown, the expected launch of the Galaxy S3 Emerge had to face a one-week delay. Now, everything is apparently all right and the pre-order period has begun.
Samsung's online store has the Sprint variant of the Galaxy J3 Emerge listed for $234.99 USD, while the carrier's portal has it with a price tag of just $168 USD. As it usually happens, Sprint allows its customers to split the cost into 24 monthly payments. While Samsung and Sprint did not reveal a launch date, Best Buy uncovered it expects to have the handset in stock on January 23.
Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge is supposed to retail as Galaxy J3 (2017) as well, depending on the market. Its specs place it in the lower end of the market - Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, 2 GB/16 GB and microSD slot, 5-inch 720p display, 2 MP and 5 MP cameras, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and a 2,600 mAh battery. We will get back to it once Samsung and Sprint unveil their release date, so stay tuned.
