SEOUL - South Korean tech manufacturer Samsung has unveiled two new additions in its budget midrange J-Series  - Galaxy J3 (2018) and Galaxy J7 (2018).

As both smartphones are mid-range devices so they give moderate internals and the decent display.

The smartphone features a 5.5-inch HD (resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels) display  – highly like to be an AMOLED as the predecessor also had one.

Galaxy J7 bottom bezel houses Samsung's signature home button and capacitive combo with the latest icon design theme.

There’s a single camera set up on the rear, consisting of a 13 MP f/1.7 shooter. Selfie camera can manage 13 MP, at an aperture of f/1.9. All in all, the design and camera specs show that it’s a low-mid range device, which means low-resource hardware and minimal features. Storage is expandable via microSD card slot.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 2018 features a 5 inch IPS LCD display and powered by an Exynos 7570 chipset with a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.4GHz and 2GB of RAM. It has 16GB of storage expandable via a microSD card slot and a 2,600 mAh battery.

There's an 8 MP rear camera, aperture f/1.9, and a 5 MP f/2.2 sensor on the front for selfies which seems like a downgrade, the 2017 version of the Galaxy J3 had a 13 MP rear sensor instead, same f/1.9 aperture.

The handsets will come to the US in "early June" through carriers and select retailers. Pricing is still unconfirmed.
