Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) has been certified by TENAA.
The Chinese regulatory authority has certified two models – SM-J3110 and the SM-J3119. The latter will be a China Telecom version. This version will be identical to the SM-J3110 international version in most areas except for the display. While the international version is listed to include a 5.1” 720 x 1280 HD Super AMOLED display, the China Telecom version will be equipped with a 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution Super AMOLED panel.
Rest of the specifications revealed by the TENAA listing include a quad-core 1.2GHz chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard expandable storage, 8MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera, 2600mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system (sigh).
It isn’t clear yet if the entry-level smartphone will be released this year, or as the naming suggests, next year.
