Galaxy J3 Is Official and Available in U.S.

gsmarena_001The entry level galaxy j3 from Samsung is official and is available with certain carriers. Samsung made its fortune by selling entry level and mid-level phones. It sold them in millions and this phone seems to follows its predecessors in reaching the hands of budget conscious smartphone users.

The international version is dubbed as the galaxy j1 and was recently been introduced in Dubai. The U.S. version has been rechristened as the galaxy j3. The specs are as follows.

  • 5-inch display with 1,280×720-pixel resolution
  • 5-megapixel rear camera
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 2GHz quad-core processor
  • 16GB internal storage

This device is undeniably a galaxy device yet Samsung has made some subtle changes to the ancient plastic design. On the front is black glass that reaching above the earphone giving the galaxy j3 a distinguished look.

Do not expect any fancy features such as a fingerprint reader and security services such as Samsung Knox. This is a no frills devices that is right now available at virgin mobile. Boost mobile and some other carriers will launch the galaxy j3 next week.

The phone doesn’t do much to differentiate itself from other “Me Too” phones. This device will retail for $180 without any contract.

Looking at the overview, I would rather suggest to look towards the Moto G or Huawei Honor 4x. I personally would have picked up the zenfone 2 that is absolutely a gorgeous phone with speedy performance.
