A tripped to TENAA in China earlier this month explicitly means that the device will eventually hit customers the next moment and that proves true with Samsung’s update to its low-cost Galaxy J3⑥ handset. However this specific model will be exclusively available for China Telecom but its design and specifications are all the same as the international variant Galaxy J3 SM-G3109.

Following the latest design features of Samsung flagship devices, the Galaxy J3⑥’s design too fits well in the family with a seemingly familiar looks but unlike other Samsung devices with a premium touch, the budget-friendly Galaxy J3⑥ is housed in a polycarbonate shell with a striking two-tone design that mocks the metallic frames from the flagship devices and even the Galaxy A series.


The Samsung Galaxy J3⑥ packs a large 5-inch 720p AMOLED display and is powered by Quad-core processor running at 1.2 GHz. It comes with a 1.5 GB system RAM with 8 GB of expandable internal storage.

Feature-wise, the handset includes an 8 Megapixel Auto Focus main camera on the back while the front comes with a high-resolution 5 Megapixel sensor which is suited best for Selfies and high-resolution video calls.

It supports 4G/LTE in addition to 3G/HSPA+ and 2G/GSM wireless connectivity. Other than this connectivity features, the Galaxy J3⑥ also includes a wide selection of other connectivity options which includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, USB 2.0 and GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS support.


Measuring at 142.3 x 71x 7.9mm, the thinly built Galaxy J3⑥ weighs just around 138 grams with its 2600 mAh battery inside. While there’s no word about the underlying software that the handset runs, TENAA certification suggests that the Galaxy J3⑥ runs on Android 5.1.1 with Samsung Milk Music app as well as a dedicated Smart Monitoring feature which scans the device for viruses and a nicely laid visual representation for battery consumption and power management.


Though Galaxy J3⑥ is already launched on Samsung China’s website, the company is yet to disclose any information regarding its price but we expected it to go around the same price-point as the its predecessor. Also, Samsung didn’t mention any further details as to when the handset hits worldwide availability but that could come in the next few weeks we supposed as the Samsung seems to regionally launched the same device or a variant of such device in other region in a short period of weeks.
