Samsung Galaxy J3 May Have Metal Casing

Samsung’s latest rumored budget-friendly handset, the Galaxy J3, was reported to come out in January, however was unfortunately delayed. Now, another leak has surfaced about the phone, and this one suggests that the J3 will have metal casing, something not commonly found on budget handsets.


The leak, which made it’s way to the Internet via Twitter by Evan Blass who has a pretty good track record when it comes to gadget rumors, simply shows off the rumored device with the caption “Samsung Galaxy J3 2016 for AT&T”. You can see the metal casing around the device which would potentially create a pretty nice and comfy grip in the hand. And hey, who doesn’t like that cold metallic feel on their devices when they wake up in the morning?

All in all, if Samsung decides to put this metallic band around the Galaxy J3, I can tell it’ll be one of the best (if not the best) budget-friendly handsets on the market in 2016, because there’s nothing like a cheap phone that looks great.

For reference, the Galaxy J3 is rumored to have a 5-inch 720p display with a 1.2GHz Cortex A7 processor alongside 8 or 16GB of storage. It’s also rumored to be powered by Android Lollipop.
