Samsung Galaxy J3 2018 has been announced by Samsung as a budget friendly smartphone. The device will be competing with other budget devices like the Redmi 5A in terms of specs, but definitely not in terms of price.
The Galaxy J3 2018 is more like an update to last year version, the Galaxy J3 2017. The smartphone has support for Samsung’s Knox, with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with the Exynos 7570 chip doing all the work underneath.
In this article we talk about:
The Galaxy J3 2018 is covered with a Plastic back that’s removable to change battery and SIMs, just like last year’s version. It doesn’t come with a fingerprint scanner, which is really disappointing from Samsung, even when lots of budget device comes with the feature.
At the top middle, we can see a little vertical foundation, this houses the rear camera and LED flash. When you turn over to the sides, there’s the power by the right and volume keys by the left. It measures 8.9mm in thickness and weighs 152g, it’ll be available in Black, Blue and Gold.
Just like the last two generations of the J3, the J3 2018 looks exactly the same from the front as well. The bottom bezel houses a physical home button (which doesn’t support fingerprint scanner) and two navigation buttons sitting side by side.
Still has the same 5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1280 pixels in resolution and 294 pixel per inch density for amazing visuals. Even though the screen offers a 16:9 aspect ratio, it stretches up to 68.9% screen-to-body ratio.
Hardware and Software
Under the hood, Samsung’s Exynos 7570 chip is in charge, it’s built on 14nm FinFET process technology and 64-bit CPU architecture. The 4-Cores of processor present here clocks at a smooth speed of 1.4GHz, with the Mali-T720 graphics processor taking care of graphics.
As expected, a standard 2GB of RAM space is available for light multitasking since it runs on Android 8.0 Oreo. For storing files, 16GB storage space is available as well and you can upgrade up to 256GB using a memory card.
The pixels on the camera has been reduced to an 8MP shooter with f/1.9 aperture. The camera comes with a LED flash and supports autofocus, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama and HDR. Videos are pegged at 1080p@30fps, while the secondary 5MP selfie shooter has f/2.2 aperture.
Powering the Samsung Galaxy J3 2018 is a 2600mAh removable Li-Ion battery with no fast charging technology. Without the fast charging feature, charging the battery from 0% to 100% might take up to 2.4 hours.
