When a search is conducted to collate the premium flagship models, Samsung would definitely be at the top of the list. The same thing applies to the midrange category and now, Samsung seems to have got the budget cadre covered as well. The Galaxy J-series is more or less a budget series and Samsung has got quite a number of J-series models in the works. The Galaxy J3 2018 has made an appearance on Geekbench which is an indication that the device is in the works.
The Galaxy J3 variants are listed with the model numbers SM-J337A and SM-J337P which is an indication that one would be the Galaxy J3 and the other is the Galaxy J3 Pro. Both models don’t have the same processor onboard, as the SM-J337A comes with an Exynos 7570 processor with a base frequency of 1.4GHz which is the same SoC on the Galaxy J3 (2017). On the other hand, the SM-J337P model features an Exynos 7885 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz. Both models pack 2GB of RAM and will run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
No word yet on when the models would be unveiled but we expect them to drop soon. Since Samsung is now trying to gain lost ground on the mid-tier/budget segment, we could see these models launched at affordable prices.
