The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) features a 5-inch HD display similar to its predecessor. It still offers the same 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space. However, it now gets the 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC along with Adreno 308 GPU to take care of graphics.

A 5MP camera sits on the back while a 2MP shooter is on the front for selfies. The device, by default, runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
