Towards the end of February, we reported about a seemingly new Galaxy J3 model in different carrier flavors headed to US telecom operators. Phones with model numbers SM-J337A, SM-J337T, and SM-J337P have been spotted at various benchmarking and certification websites. Based on the model numbers of the current Galaxy J3 models in the US, the new devices appear to be their successors.
The new models are inches closer to launch
The same Galaxy J3 model and its variants have now been spotted on the Bluetooth certification website. The website doesn’t reveal any information about the devices other than the Bluetooth version as 4.2. Any smartphone entering the certification stage is a sure sign that the launch is near. Of these new devices, the SM-J337T model has already received Wi-Fi certification as well.
If we go by the previous benchmarks, the new Galaxy J3 model should come with Android 8.0, a 5-inch 720p display, 2 GB RAM,16 GB storage, and an Exynos chipset. However, the Galaxy J series models often vary in specifications and branding from market to market. So, if and when this Galaxy J3 model comes to other markets, there is no guarantee it will have the same specification or branding.
Samsung has also filed for trademarks such as J3 Star, J3 Achieve, and Galaxy J3 Orbit with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). It is possible Samsung might launch the new Galaxy J3 model on US carriers with some of these names if we go by the branding of the current models.
