Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) vs. Galaxy J3 (2016) – What to Pick Nowadays?

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) vs. Galaxy J3 (2016) – What to Pick Nowadays?

Last year we all saw the release of the affordable smartphone named Galaxy J3. It was meant to be a direct rival for the Moto G4, which is definitely a popular product on its segment. We have no official announcement as of now, but everybody expects a new Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) to be released, and this has been partly confirmed by some benchmark leaks. But which one of them would score better?


If we were to take a look at the lower-end products released by Samsung, then we could draw the conclusion that they have quite a similar design. As such, it’s not too far off to assume that the Galaxy J3 (2017) device will look the same as its predecessor.


Some early reports point to the fact that Samsung may use the same basic display for the 2017 version of the Galaxy J3, namely a Super AMOLED screen with a 720 pixels resolution that measures 5 inches. The 2016 model was highly appraised for the brightness it offered, which is quite impressive for a budget device.


The 2016 model ran on an Exynos 3475 CPU, for instance, but the 2017 device is expected to bring an update. As such, we might see the device using an Exynos 7570. Samsung declared that the new chipset scores a 70% higher performance, plus it enjoys a 30% boost in its power efficiency.


The older model featured an 8 MP back camera, which is kind of disappointing, even for a budget range device. No wonder people are hoping that the 2017 J3 will bring a better snapper. And indeed, it could bring still an 8 MP camera, but with a wider lens that allows more brightness in the pictures. Even so, it’s not going to take extremely qualitative photos.
