Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) headed to AT&T
The Galaxy J3 (2016) hasn’t seen much attention since its launch in China. The device has gone under the radar, and Samsung has launched it in a very limited number of markets. Prepaid US operators Boost and Virgin Mobile had announced that they would be selling the J3 (2016), and the phone now seems to be headed to one of the country’s four major carriers, as an image of the AT&T variant has been published online.
Like the regular variant, the Galaxy J3 (2016) for AT&T comes with a two-tone design on the front – the image shows the white version, which is colored black above the display but is white everywhere else. It’s a sporty look that we also saw on the Galaxy J1 (2016), though it’s not something everyone will take a liking to. In terms of specs, the Galaxy J3 comes with a 5-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2,600 mAh battery.
The Galaxy J3 (2016) runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, and there’s little chance of the device getting an upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Pricing should be under the $200 mark (Boost and Virgin Mobile have priced it at $179), and contract plans (should they be offered by AT&T) should carry zero upfront cost. We’ll let you know once AT&T starts selling the Galaxy J3 (2016).
