Purported Galaxy J3 (2017) imported into India for testing


Last updated: October 9th, 2016 at 18:18 UTC+02:00

An unknown smartphone with Galaxy branding has been spotted on Zauba’s online database. The handset, which carries the model number SM-J327P, was imported into India for testing and evaluation purposes on Thursday, October 6.

Unfortunately, it’s currently unclear what moniker the device will flaunt when it hits the shelves. However, we believe that the mystery unit is a second-generation model of the Galaxy J3 that was released back in November 2015.

As you’d expect, the documentation accompanying the prototype doesn’t shine any light on the internals it packs, other than that it features a 5-inch display. Recent rumors point towards it being powered by a 2,600mAh battery, though.

We’ve known for a little while now that Samsung is looking to refresh its Galaxy J lineup, and four days ago a separate smartphone — believed to be the Galaxy J7 (2017) — was brought into the region for testing.

There’s no word on when the refreshed handsets will be announced. Although, we expect to see the Galaxy J3 (2017) available on the mass market as early as next month in order to tie in with its predecessor’s release date.
