Samsung seems to be gearing up to release a few devices in the next few months and one of them is a budget smartphone, the Galaxy J3, successor of the Galaxy J2 that was release in September this year.

The South Korean electronics giant hasn't revealed any detail about its Galaxy J3 but it is expected to be released any time soon, perhaps in November if one is to go by its certifications.

Giving a clear hint that the Galaxy J3 with model number SM-J3109 could be released soon, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has certified it in the United States. It is also reported that Chinese telecommunications governing bodies TENAA and 3C have cleared the device. 

According to reports, the Samsung Galaxy J3 will sport a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 720 pixels, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocking at 1.2 GHz, Adreno 306 GPU, and run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with new Touchwiz UI. It is also expected to come packed with 8 GB internal storage expandable up to 64 GB via microSD card, house an 8 MP rear camera and 5 MP front snapper, and has a 2600 mAH Battery.

In terms of connectivity, the device is expected to support 3G, 4G LTE, GPS, Wi-Fi, microUSB and Bluetooth.
