AT&T will soon add another mid-ranger to its roster, as the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) just leaked in press renders with the carrier's branding.

The Galaxy J3 (2016) made its debut in China initially, which is why it didn't really make any waves. Boost and Virgin Mobile later added the smartphone to their respective lineups in January this year, and it now looks like AT&T is getting ready to join the party soon enough.

Famous tipster Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, has some press renders that show the AT&T-branded Galaxy J3 (2016) in all its glory. Unsurprisingly, the handset looks just like the one available on Virgin and Boost, except for the carrier logo.

The Galaxy J3 (2016) is by no means a flagship device, as it comes with rather meager specifications on board. The smartphone is simply a midrange offering that aims to deliver a decent performance on a budget, and it does seem properly equipped for this category.

To quickly recap its specs, the Galaxy J3 (2016) sports a 5-inch AMOLED display with an HD resolution (720p), a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1.5 GB of RAM and LTE connectivity.

Other specifications include 16 GB of internal locker space, microSD support for expandable storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front shooter and a 2,600 mAh battery.

Boost and Virgin Mobile are both offering the Galaxy J3 (2016) mid-ranger at an affordable $179.99 price point off-contract, and AT&T is expected to go for a similar deal.

AT&T has yet to make an official announcement detailing when it plans to start selling the Galaxy J3 (2016), but the latest leaked renders offer some clues in this regards. The date visible on the smartphone's screen is Friday, May 6, which suggests that AT&T should launch the handset on that date.

Lastly, the Galaxy J3 (2016) currently runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, but Samsung might upgrade it to Marshmallow before landing on AT&T.

We're also expecting 2016 versions of the Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7 to land soon, as the handsets received Bluetooth SIG certification last month. The J5 and J7 will not come with top-notch specs either, as the Galaxy J line is for the midrange category.
