Two more of Samsung's modest, budget-friendly Galaxy J-series devices are moving to Android Nougat OTA as we speak on Verizon and Sprint.
The unlocked US Samsung Galaxy J3 and Galaxy J7 are certainly affordable, but are they affordable enough for their outdated specs?
It doesn't look very "premium", and it's certainly no powerhouse, but the Nougat-powered Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime is still a T-Mo and Metro bargain.
Samsung's top-selling 2016 handset, the Galaxy S7 Edge, was only ranked fifth overall, according to IHS, behind four, count'em, four iPhones.
Sprint, Boost and Virgin Mobile will reportedly all carry the low-end Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge starting January 6 at unspecified prices.
It's ancient by any standards, but the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is due for an Android 6.0 software promotion before long, as is the international J3 (2016).
The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) might just be the company's best ultra-affordable Android smartphone nowadays, especially on Verizon, with 6.0 pre-installed.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy J2 (2016) looks an awful lot like the recently released J3 (2016), which makes us wonder exactly what the OEM is thinking.
Previously available only from CDMA carriers stateside, the affordable Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) can now be had in an unlocked GSM configuration.
