Samsung getting ready to launch the Galaxy J3 (2016) in Europe soon. On the company's official sites in Spain and Italy, the device is already listed on the consumer support pages.

Samsung's official arm in the Netherlands went one step further when it revealed the key highlights found in the device, which added more emphasis to the fact that the Galaxy J3 (2016) is finally hitting the store shelves in Europe.

Samsung's Galaxy J-series of handsets is just one of the smartphone lineups brought by the company. Unlike its cousins from the Galaxy S-series, which come with premium design and higher price tag, the Galaxy J3 and the rest of the handsets in the Galaxy J-series are usually priced lower and are designed to cater to prepaid users on a global scale.

The Galaxy J3 2016 edition is one of the newly released handsets from the company's Galaxy J family.The smartphone initially launched in China, then expanded its availability.

Earlier this month, U.S. carriers such as Boost and Virgin Mobile launched the Galaxy J3 (2016) as one of their offered devices, while AT&T plans to follow suit in the coming days.

Samsung also plans to launch the Galaxy J3 (2016) in India toward the latter part of March.

In other words, the new Galaxy J3 is now available in the world's biggest markets after launching in China and in the United States. India, now known as the world's second largest smartphone market, is also included in the handset's launch schedule.

The Galaxy J3 (2016) belongs to the midrange tier of handsets that promise to deliver a decent performance along with a budget-friendly price tag. Designed with a 5-inch HD AMOLED display, the new Galaxy J3 has a slightly smaller screen compared to the Galaxy S7's 5.1-inch display.

While the Galaxy J3 is clearly not a flagship device, it somehow comes equipped with good specs and features for its category. These include a 16 GB internal storage, a 2,600 mAh battery, microSD support for expandable storage, a 5 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera.

According to the handset's listing on the Netherlands site, the Galaxy J3 is one of the slimmer and more compact handsets ever made by Samsung. It measures only 0.31 inch (7.9 millimeter) in thickness and 2.80 inches (71.05 millimeter) in width. It also describes the handset to have a molded grip that will allow users to hold the Galaxy J3 comfortably in their hands.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 will reportedly retail at $212 or around €189 in Europe and 14,182 rupees in India. It comes in a trio of white, black and gold color options.
