If the leaked benchmark listing turns out to be authentic, then the Galaxy J3 (2018) with the model number SM-J337 will feature a downgraded camera in comparison to its predecessor. Otherwise, the specifications of both the Galaxy J3 smartphones appear to be almost similar.

Actual Galaxy J3 to be launched in mid-2018

Eventually, we believe that the SM-J337 spotted on the benchmarking database could be a toned down variant of the Galaxy J3 (2018) that might be launched early next year. We can expect it to be launched outside the US as it uses an Exynos chipset. The actual Galaxy J3 (2018) could be launched in mid-2018 if the company decides to follow the usual launch pattern.
