Samsung Galaxy J3 and J3 Pro emerge on Geekbench

Samsung shores up its portfolio for the ever important entry-level segment with the Galaxy J3 and the J3 Pro.

Samsung is infamous for covering all segments of the market with a legion of models from the lowest entry-level devices to the most expensive flagship devices. Today we will take a look at a pair of entry-level devices from the Korean mega-conglomerate: the Galaxy J3 and the J3 Pro, both of which ended up being scored on the popular benchmarking site Geekbench.

A look at the listings shows the phone with model Samsung SM-J337A showing up on Geekbench's listings. The phone sports a single-core score of 604 and a multi-core score of 1,651 points. This is the vanilla Galaxy J3, and the benchmark reveals some key specifications for the device. As per the listing, the Galaxy J3 will have an Exynos 7570 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and it comes with Android 8.0.0 Oreo.

Similarly, another listing for the device Samsung SM-J337P has the details for the Galaxy J3 Pro. It has a single-core score of 650 and a multi-core score of 1,799 and sports an Exynos 7885 processor, 2 GB of RAM and Android 8.0.0 Oreo.

Neither of these two devices has an exceptionally impressive score, but for the entry-level segment, these scores are quite respectable. The listing doesn't confirm the other specifications for these phones, but the rumors suggest that the Galaxy J3 will have a 5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with 16 GB of internal storage and an 8-megapixel main camera paired with a 5-megapixel front camera. It's unclear if the Galaxy J3 Pro will have the same specifications as well, but it's likely that both phones will share these specifications, with the main difference being the processor.

While not as flashy as Samsung's S Series and Note Series, the J Series has always been an important part of Samsung's business plans. The majority of Samsung's smartphone sales still come from the entry-level segment, so these two phones are vital to the overall picture for Samsung. We'll see them launched soon enough on a smaller stage than the Mobile World Congress, but they will continue to push forth Samsung's business strategy in emerging markets like India and the Philippines.
