Samsung’s Budget Galaxy J-Series Gets Upgraded

Today, Samsung announced that they’ve upgraded their entire lineup of Galaxy J-series smartphones for both the US and European markets. And while only one handset will reach us in the States, two additional devices will formally launch in Europe soon.


Starting from top to bottom, the Galaxy J7 sports a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM, an octa-core 1.6GHz Exynos 7870 processor, 16GB of expandable storage, 13MP front and rear cameras, and a 3,600mAh battery. It runs on Samsung’s fork of Android 7.0 Nougat as seen on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ earlier this year, while the device will run for €339 when it launches in Europe this July.


The Galaxy J5 turns things down a bit with a 5.2-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, the same octa-core processor, 13MP cameras, and a 3,000mAh battery. It, too, runs Android 7 and will cost €279 when it launches in Europe this month.

Finally, as we’ve previously seen, the Galaxy J3 sports a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, a 1.4GHz Exynos 7570 octa-core processor, 16GB of expandable storage, a 13MP rear camera and 2MP front shooter, and a small 2,400mAh battery. It runs Android Nougat and costs $179 here in the US from AT&T.

For reference, you can pick either device up in either black or gold. More information can be found here.
