Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018) Specifications, Price and Release Date

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018) Features

The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018) came with a 5 inch HD screen, though the type remains unconfirmed. But looking at the low standing of the phone, it is more likely to be an IPS LCD unit. The Galaxy J3 (2018) is powered by a an Exynos 7570 chipset with a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.4GHz, and coupled with a 2GB RAM. It has a 16GB internal storage which is expandable via a microSD card slot. It will be powered by a 2600mAh battery.


From the camera department, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018) features a 5MP f/2.2 sensor on the front, and an 8MP main camera at the back with a fairly big f/1.9 aperture. We are yet to be sure if this camera is better than the last year’s 13MP unit, both having the same f/1.9 lens.
