Samsung has launched a new smartphone in China today, the modest Galaxy J3(6), which has recently passed through the FCC in the U.S. and TENAA in China. The handset is unlikely to appeal to the those seeking cutting edge specs, but it may just hit a sweet spot for those looking for an affordable option from a major brand that also looks decent.While the Galaxy J3(6) is made of plastic, it carries a slick design that will make it among the most appealing smartphones in its price band. However, many of the other aspects mean that the J3(6) is a tough sell, unless you are someone who simply wants the Samsung branding. In terms of specs, the Galaxy J3(6) comes with a 5-inch 720p screen, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. There is also a micro SD card support, 8 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front facing lens, a 2,600mAh battery, and Android Lollipop with Samsung's own TouchWiz skin. The problem with Sammy's Galaxy J devices so far has been that they are overpriced for the specs that they come with. The company has not said exactly how much the Galaxy J3(6) will cost, so we hope it will be reasonably priced to make it a solid buy for consumers.
