Samsung announces Galaxy J3(6) w/ 5-inch HD AMOLED display




Samsung launches the Galaxy J3(6) in China which sports a rather unusual 5-inch HD AMOLED display that is usually seen in higher-end variants and not in low-mid tier models. It’s been reported that this handset is targeted to compete with the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, and other Chinese brands offering low-cost smartphones.

Although looking metallic, the back cover is made of plastic to keep costs down. The company’s TouchWiz UI is also implemented here so Samsung fans would feel right at home with this device. It is available in black, white, and gold, and has a thickness maxing out at 7.9mm.

There are no news on its official pricing, but it would most likely be exclusive to the Chinese market.

    Hopefully the quad core is an Exynos and it costs closer to the Galaxy J2 (7,000 php) than the J5 (10,000 php).

    Samsung’s Super AMOLED is a really nice screen tech but the local brands have considerably better innards with octacores and massive batteries.

    As a sidenote, their fellow Korean manufacturer LG has a Christmas promotion on the LG Magna which has similar specs to the Galaxy J3(6). It’s also a 5-inch 720p quad core phone with Lollipop and they sell it for 8k with bundled power bank until end of November.
