Samsung‘s upcoming J (2018) series has been doing the rounds of the rumor mill for quite some time now. From the series, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018) has now reportedly received Bluetooth certification, indicating an imminent launch.

The smartphone was spotted at various regulatory agencies in the past as well, and in the latest addition, it has now received its Bluetooth certification. As a report on Phonearena notes, the company will launch the Galaxy J3 (2018) worldwide, but it will be sold under different names in the US market.

The Galaxy J series is known as entry-level to mid-range category of smartphones and the upcoming Galaxy J3 (2018) is unlikely to be an exception. In addition to the Galaxy J3, Samsung is also likely to unveil the Galaxy J7, J8, and J8 Plus as well.

As for the Galaxy J3 (2018), last week, a model named Galaxy J3 Orbit was spotted in an application filed by Samsung at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The J3 Orbit was listed alongside the Galaxy J7 Crown, confirming the reports about the company using different names to sell them in other markets. According to the report, other possible names for the Galaxy J3 include Galaxy J3 Express Prime, Galaxy Amp Prime 3, Galaxy J3 Emerge and Galaxy J3 Prime 2.

Not much is known about the specifications of the Galaxy J3 (2018). However, in all likelihood, it will run the newer Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box and carry an affordable price tag.

The only smartphone to have leaked in more details from the series is the Galaxy J8 (2018). Based on past rumors, the smartphone will be powered by an Exynos 7870 processor with eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz along with LTE Cat.6 2CA Modem. It is further expected to pack 3GB of RAM, 16-megapixel front and rear cameras, or 8-megapixel each in dual camera mode. As for the display, it is likely to be a standard 5.5-inch display with 720×1280 pixels resolution. On the software front, the smartphone is said to run Android 8.0 Oreo.
