The Galaxy Note 7 debacle has proven to have been a major blow to Samsung’s market position but the tech giants are stopping at nothing to turn things around back in their favour. With already a number of devices in the making and a number of devices already released post their setback, Samsung appears to be set to launch another mid-range device called the Galaxy J3 (2017).
The Samsung Galaxy J3(2017), with model number SM-J327P has now received the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification which makes one fact certain that the launch of this mid-range device is not very far off. The device was spotted on Zauba, an import and export tracking site in India, for testing after being cleared by Chinese telecom equipment certification authority TENAA apart from the FCC.

MobileKaPrice has put the expected price of the Galaxy J3 (2017) at Rs. 8,999, but it is not official. But we are sure of the fact that the Galaxy J392017) will be more or less a budget offering From Samsung specifically released for buyers looking for a budget smartphone to purchase.
