Samsung has followed the trend of releasing next-gen smartphones for a targeted series. Recently it has been rumoured that Samsung has started testing its Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) smartphone which would be the successor of Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) smartphone. So, let’s see how this smartphone may turn out to be in real life.
If we follow the online rumours, then according to them there is no massive change in the design of Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017), and many experts believe that the design aspects would be exactly same as that of Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016). The phone shall feature with the same rectangular design with curved edges and would carry the same hit design of the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016). The phone shall feature with a physical home button and two soft-touch capacitive buttons. The phone is expected to feature with a full metal build, and there is an ongoing rumour that the phone will be made available in two variants. According to the online rumour, the difference between the two variants of the phone would be the fact that one may come with an HD display while the other may come with a full HD display. At the present moment, there is not much information regarding the colour variants of the phone. However, the gold and grey colour variants of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) are confirmed. The phone is expected to feature with a 5-inches Super AMOLED HD display. If the specifications turn out to be same in real life, then the phone can have one of the best displays in the budget segment of the smartphone. The super AMOLED display would easily catch the user’s attention, and the screen would look lively enough.
The phone is believed to be powered by 1.4GHz quad-core processor that would be backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset. A 2GB of RAM would also support the phone. The internal storage of the phone is expected to be 16GB, which again could be further expanded using the microSD card slot provided in the phone. We hope that the phone would work even better than the previous Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016). We can certainly hope for additional features in the smartphone such as the S-bike mode, which is one of the exclusive features for the other J series smartphones. The best part about the S-bike mode is that when the user is riding a bike and receives a call, the person calling would hear a pre-recorded voice message stating that the person is riding a bike at that moment. Also, the user's while riding the bike can easily reject any call by using a simple gesture.The phone shall run on Android platform, and we believe that the phone would be running on Android OS, version 6.0.1 i.e. Marshmallow.The phone shall feature with dual-SIM card slots and would support 4G LTE with data saving modes.
Talking about the photography section, the Galaxy J3 (2017) is expected to feature an 8-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture. The front shooter is expected to feature a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The primary camera would also be backed by autofocus and LED flashlight. The additional features of the camera would include Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama and HDR. The video recording is expected to be done at frames like 720p@30fps. With the current specs, the camera performance could be expected to be decent. One might not capture some highly detailed images. However, the images captured by the camera won’t disappoint either. Low light photography may suffer, just like Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016). A loudspeaker would also be provided in the phone and so is a 3.5mm audio jack.
The phone is expected to feature with a 2,600mAh battery, which according to the Samsung can work up to 22 hours of talk time and up to 14.5 days on standby mode. We hope the battery would provide enough juice to run for a complete day with heavy usage. The connectivity options would include, Hotspot, Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, A2DP, A-GPS, GLONASS and microUSB v2.0. The sensors that are expected to come with the phone include accelerometer and proximity. It has also been rumoured that a fingerprint scanner may also be provided in the home button.
