Samsung is the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, and pretty much everyone has heard of their ‘Galaxy S’ and ‘Galaxy Note’ devices by now. The company has introduced the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge flagships back in February, but we’re not here to talk about the company’s flagship offerings. Samsung’s Galaxy J3 (2016) handset has been introduced back in November last year, and since then it has been released in quite a few regions. The phone is available on Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA, while it has also been launched in India last month. Well, the phone is now actually available from Amazon as well, read on.
The unlocked Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) handset is now available via Amazon.com as well, for those of you who are interested. If you’re looking for an unlocked handset in the Galaxy J3’s price range, here’s your chance. The phone can be purchased for $189.99 from Amazon, which makes it slightly more affordable than the version Sprint is selling ($192). The phone is compatible with both AT&T and T-Mobile (including LTE), and you can purchase the phone in Black, White or Gold color variants. Keep in mind that only the Gold and White models offer dual SIM connectivity, while the Gold variant comes with only one SIM slot.
The Galaxy J3 features a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) Super AMOLED display, 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB / 16GB of expandable internal storage. Keep in mind that the variant available on Amazon offers 8GB of native storage, not 16GB. The device is fueled by the Spreadtrum SC8830 quad-core SoC, along with the Mali-400 GPU. The 8-megapixel camera (f/2.2 aperture) is placed on the back of this phone, and a 5-megapixel snapper can be found up front. The LED flash is available on both the back and front sides of this smartphone, just in case you were wondering. The 2,600mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it is not removable. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed on this phone, and on top of it, you’ll be able to find Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. The Galaxy J3 measures 142.3 x 71 x 7.9mm, while it weighs 138 grams.
