The GFXBench listing of the Galaxy J3 (2017) smartphone sheds more light on what the specifications and features of the smartphone would be like.

The smartphone looks similar to its predecessor, the Galaxy J3 (2016) with the home button below the display along with the capacitive touch buttons. The smartphone is also expected to feature a full-metal design and will possibly come in color options of gold and grey. The leaked images also showed the power button on the right side and the volume rocker on the left side.
Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) specifications
The GFXBench lists the Galaxy J3 (2017) with model number SM-J327, which is different from SM-J327P leaked before. This adds weight to earlier leaks about there being two variants of the upcoming smartphone. According to the benchmark listing, the Galaxy J3 (2017) is expected to feature a 5-inch HD display, Snapdragon quad-core processor, Adreno 308 GPU, and 1.5GB of RAM. It is expected to feature 16GB onboard storage.
In the photography department, the Galaxy J3 (2017) could come with 5-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus, face detection, HDR and touch focus. Up front there is likely to be a 2-megapixel selfie camera. On the software front, the smartphone is expected to run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. Taking the specifications into context, we can assume that this Galaxy J3 (2017) with model number SM-J327 could be the lower variant. The assumptions are made on the basis of its display and the cameras.
As for the other variant of the Galaxy J3 (2017) with model number SM-J327P, the specifications are quite similar except for a few differences. This smartphone is expected to feature a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 2,600mAh battery, and Snapdragon 430 chipset paired with 1.5GB of RAM.
