Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 Price

Expert Review

South Korean conglomerate Samsung has recently announced its 2017’s version of last year’s Samsung Galaxy J3. Coming back with a better display and better storage, the mid-range Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) will be a talk of the town once it’s released. The new Samsung Galaxy J3 release date in India is expected to be in April, 2017.

What’s hot:

Super AMOLED display, 16GB internal memory

What’s not:

Android Lollipop, 2600 mAh


The new Samsung Galaxy J3 is powered by the same old Spreadtrum SC9830 Quad-core processor which is almost equal to Qualcomm Snapdragon 410. The processor speed is 1.2GHz which is quite lesser when compared to its predecessor’s 1.5GHz. The Cortex A7 architecture and Mali-400 Graphics Processing Unit makes high-end graphic games playable. With Android Nougat in the market and another OS dessert on the way, the Samsung Galaxy J3 is still stuck to the Lollipop.


The Samsung Galaxy J3 comes with an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP front camera. The primary camera comes with LED Flash and supports HDR and Panorama mode. Auto Flash, Geo-tagging, Continuous Shooting, and Touch to focus are the additional features of the primary camera. The front camera does not have a flash.


The Samsung Galaxy J3 comes with a Li-ion non-removable battery with the capacity of 2600 mAh. Samsung claims that with a full charge, the battery can last through 13 hours of talk time. Notably, the 2016 edition’s battery was user replaceable.

Design and Display:

Weighing around 138 grams, the Samsung Galaxy J3 sports a 5.5-inch display. The screen resolution of the phone is 1080x1920p, which is a development compared to the last year’s version. The best thing about this phone is its Super AMOLED display which is quite radiant even when compared to the high-end mobiles. The screen to body percentage of the mobile is 67.9% and the pixel density of the capacitive multitouch screen is a huge 432 ppi.


The new Samsung Galaxy J3 comes with a 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory, which can be expandable up to 128GB with a MicroSD card.


Additional features of the Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 include an Accelerometer, a Proximity Sensor, a Compass, and a Gyro Sensor. The new Samsung Galaxy J3 price in India is expected to be Rs 6800.


Inarguably, this is not the best phone out there under Rs 7000. The likes of Redmi 3s and Coolpad Mega 3 offer you better cameras and processors. But if you are a Samsung fanatic and display is your only concern, then think no more and get a Galaxy J3.
