The South Korean tech giant Samsung is planning to add a new device to its portfolio. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy J3 first came to light for the first time early October when benchmark of the device was sported on Geekbench and GFXBench.
Now Times News UK is reporting that the Galaxy J3 has received approval from the FCC.
This device is going to be more advanced than the Galaxy J2 which was launched by Samsung back in September 2015.
The direct implication of FCC certification is that the release of the phone is imminent. FCC certification confirmed that the Galaxy J3 will be tagged with model number SM-J3109.
FCC documents reveal that the device successfully passed LTE, 3G and 2G testings.
Earlier last month the specs of the then speculated Samsung Galaxy J3 was revealed with a 5 inches display supporting 720 x 1280 pixels resolution.
The smartphone comes with 1GB of RAM while the internal memory is 8GB which is also expandable via microSD card. The system will be powered by Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop).
Samsung Galaxy J3 is being speculated to be powered by a Snapdragon 410 SoC augmented with a 64-bit Cortex-A53 CPU. The hinted camera specs indicate an 8MP primary and 5MP front shooter.
The company has not made any comments in regards to speculations circulating in the tech arena, but the FCC certification justifies that the launch may be around the corner.
