Leaked photos of Galaxy J3 suggest Samsung is showing its budget phones some metal-cased love

Samsung’s Galaxy J3, originally expected to be launched in January but delayed, is nothing to write home about spec-wise. It’s a 5-inch 720p display powered by a 1.2GHz Cortex A7 running Lollipop and giving a choice of 8- or 16GB storage.

But photos leaked by the reliable Evan Blass suggest that even such a low-end phone may get a metal casing. For someone who wants a budget phone with non-budget looks, the J3 may be just the thing.
