Samsung has officially announced new entries in the J3, J5, and J7 (2017) line of smartphones. The latest entries in Samsung's mid-range J series are expected to launch this summer.

Samsung J Series

While not as powerful or as prestigious as the Galaxy S series, the J series is still a strong choice for many consumers. The line is affordable and well-made, and offers enough features to help stand apart from many other budget phones.

The J line represents one area in which Samsung is doing better than Apple — that of offering a product for all consumers. The iPhone may be one of the best smartphones on the market, but it is also one of the most expensive. Samsung's J series ensures that the company has products that can compete in every market whereas Apple is limited to premium shoppers.

J3 (2017)

In terms of display, the J3 will feature a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 720. The device is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core chip, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage. For those who need extra room, the device will offer microSD support. In terms of software, it will be running Android 7.0 Nougat as well as offer Samsung's own suite of software.

In terms of battery life, the device will be powered by a 2,400 mAh battery though there's no word on quick charging or anything of that nature.

The camera will have a primary camera of 13 megapixels and a front-facing 5-megapixel camera.

J5 (2017)

In terms of RAM and storage space, the J5 is identical to the J3, but it does offer a few improvements. The 1.6 GHz processor should offer a bit more speed and the display, while offering the same resolution, is a bit larger at 5.2 inches. It should also last a bit longer thanks to its 3,000 mAh battery.

J7 (2017)

The most expensive of the three devices — the J7 — offers a few features that help it stand apart from the J3 and J5. For starters, the display is a 5.5-inch screen featuring a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. It will also be a bit faster thanks to the fact that it features an additional gigabyte of RAM. The phone's charge should last longer than either the J3 or J5 since it will offer a 3,600 mAh battery. Aside from that, the device's internal hardware is identical to the J5 and, like the J3 and J5, will be running Android 7.0 Nougat.

As previously rumored, the J7 will feature two 13-megapixel cameras.
