Less than a month after Samsung announced the arrival of the new Galaxy J3 and Galaxy J7 handsets, both are making their way to the US market. The 5-inch Galaxy J3 and the 5.5-inch Galaxy J7 are both budget handsets that feature 2 GB of memory and come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

Verizon, Boost Mobile, and Sprint customers are now able to buy two new budget Samsung phones that belong to the Galaxy J lineup. This year's Galaxy J3 and Galaxy J7 have been announced in early June and now these two Android Oreo-driven handsets can be acquired for prices that start around the US$130 mark but can go below US$100 thanks to various discounts.

Unsurprisingly, the cheaper (and less potent) of the two models mentioned above is the Galaxy J3. This 5-inch handset is powered by the Exynos 7884A processor, which is probably an underclocked Exynos 7884. Its list of specs and features also includes 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 5 MP/8 MP front/rear cameras, and a 2,600 mAh battery.

The Galaxy J7 has a 720p display like the Galaxy J3, but its size is 5.5 inches. The processor it uses is the Exynos 7884, next to 2 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, 13 MP cameras on both sides, and a 3,300 mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 can be acquired for as low as US$79.99 on Boost Mobile, down from a retail price of US$129.99. Boost Mobile also has the Galaxy J7 in store for US$229.99, but those interested can use a special code to get a 20 percent discount. Boost Mobile renamed both handsets, so the Galaxy J3 is known as Galaxy J3 Achieve, while the Galaxy J7 is, in fact, the Galaxy J7 Refine. Sprint uses these names as well but offers different prices. At last, Verizon has the new Galaxy J handsets in store as the Galaxy J3 V 3rd Gen and Galaxy J7 V 2nd Gen.

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.
