The rest of the Galaxy J models will come in just a few weeks starting at 169 Euros for the lower-end J3 SKU.
Allen Ngo,

The Galaxy J series is Samsung's mainstream family of smartphones and is a step down from the flagship Galaxy S series in terms of features and performance. Last year's Galaxy J 2016 lineup launched during the second quarter and it looks like the 2017 refresh will finally be coming before the end of Summer.

While the Galaxy J3, J5, and J7 2017 editions will all feature dual-SIM capabilities, the J7 will be sporting more impressive specifications including its metal chassis, 5.5-inch FHD S-AMOLED display, 3 GB of RAM, and 13 MP cameras for both the front and rear. The updates are a huge departure from the Galaxy J7 2016 as the outgoing model is equipped with a 720p S-AMOLED display, just 2 GB of RAM, and a 5 MP front camera.

Meanwhile, the "Duos" versions of the J5 and J7 above will have an added fingerprint sensor for additional security. The smaller 5-inch J3 Duos will have a comparatively weaker front-facing camera at just 5 MP.

See our existing reviews on the 2016 versions of the J3, J5, and J7 for more information on the series. The even smaller Galaxy J1 2017 refresh with its 4.5-inch S-AMOLED display launched earlier this year to be well ahead of its pricier siblings.

Galaxy J 2017 series according to manufacturer:

  • Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) Duos 339 Euros starting July 2017
  • Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) Duos 279 Euros starting June 2017
  • Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) Duos 169 Euros staring July 2017

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
