Samsung Galaxy J7 (2018) & Galaxy J3 (2018) Official: Two Affordable Mid-rangers

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2018) & Galaxy J3 (2018) Official: Two Affordable Mid-rangers

Now, we have official confirmation on the pricing of these two devices. And although a leaked glass screen protector last week seemed to point to smaller bezels on the top and bottom of the Note 9, the renders make the upcoming phone look virtually identical to its predecessor. We're not really expecting a total change in design but we're interested as always. It follows the Note 8 which was a success compared to the Note 7. The Note 9 is said to keep the Infinity Display, S Pen, USB-C port, Bixby button and headphone jack (thank goodness). According to the CAD data, most of the device will be the same as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but the back will have a much different look, mainly due to the fingerprint scanner moving below the camera module, which should mean an end to smudged lenses. The fingerprint reader is right below the cameras. Unlike the current under-screen optical fingerprint sensor in the Huawei P20 Pro, this unit uses a physical button that partially sits under the screen.

We've also got the dimensions of the Galaxy Note 9, which measures 161.9 x 76.3mm.

The more interesting Samsung Galaxy J7 (2018), the model brings nearly identical specs to its predecessor, at least when it comes to the camera setup. Samsung lists a 5.5-inch HD display, which is probably Super AMOLED since the 2017 model had one of those. There will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, 6GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of built-in storage.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 Star is powered by a 3,700mAh battery with Fast charge support.

We only know that the handsets will come to the United States in "early June" through carriers and select retailers and that the Galaxy J3 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) launched for $149.99 and $219.99, respectively.
