The 2017 portfolio of the Galaxy J series is nearing release, and we know that because the upcoming Galaxy J3 2017 and J5 2017 just got certified at WiFi Alliance. The devices which received the green light here include model numbers SM-J330F, SM-J330G and SM-J330G/DS as regards Galaxy J3 2017, model numbers SM-J530YM/DS, SM-J530Y/DS and SM-J530Y were certified if we talk about Galaxy J5 2017.
Of late, the 2017 variants of the Galaxy J3, J5 and J7 have already cleared various certification agencies ranging from P3DN in Indonesia, FCC and Bluetooth SIG. This can only mean one thing which is that Samsung is almost ready to take the wraps off from the 2017 Galaxy J series.
According to a GeekBench listing, the next iteration of the Galaxy J3 may feature a quad-core Exynos 7570 chipset, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of on board storage. Previous rumors also indicate that the device may carry a 13MP rear shooter and an 8MP front facing camera. The Galaxy J5 2017 may also carry a similar specsheet, especially the amount of RAM and storage. But Samsung may implement a 12MP rear shooter and a 12MP selfie camera for the latter device.
Both the Galaxy J3 2017 and J5 2017 are expected to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. This is a welcome change and we hope Samsung will deliver nothing short of that, given that we’re now entering mid 2017. The official launch of these devices may be some time around the end of this month or early June at the most.
