Earlier this month, Samsung unveiled Galaxy J3 (2018) and Galaxy J7 (2018) smartphones for the U.S. market. It did not reveal many details and said that they will be sold via carrier partners and retail stores. One of the biggest U.S. carriers T-Mobile has finally launched the Galaxy J3 Star which is basically the rebranded Galaxy J3 (2018).
Since it is a T-Mobile offering, it comes with support for LTE band 71 which makes use of the 600MHz spectrum band. It is used by the carrier to provide its "Extend Range LTE Network" service for offering a better 4G LTE coverage across different locations. If you are interested in making use of this functionality, it is the device which you should be looking at.
To give you a quick overview, the Samsung Galaxy J3 Star sports a 5-inch HD display which is not a Super AMOLED panel. Under the hood, it has an undisclosed quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. There is 16GB of onboard storage with support for microSD cards to help users extend the storage capacity.
In the camera department, it has an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. These should help you click decent photos considering that there is enough light around. The whole package is powered by a 2600mAh battery and it runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
