Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 gets WiFi Alliance certificate

For the uninitiated, Wi-Fi Alliance is a non-profit organization that promotes Wi-Fi technology and certifies Wi-Fi products that conform to interoperability standards. Usually, the Wi-Fi products submitted for certification are IEEE 802.11-compliant. The Wi-Fi Alliance owns and controls the “Wi-Fi Certified” logo which can be imprinted only on those devices that have passed testing in terms of compatibility, conformance, and performance. Devices that receive WiFi Alliance certification are likely to have greater chances of interoperation than otherwise. Wi-Fi certified devices usually perform well in networks even with other Wi-Fi Certified products running common applications.

Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 is listed as SM-J330F on WiFi Alliance. This smartphone is the international variant of J3 2017 which is expected to come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. One good thing about the new J-series smartphones is the latest Android OS; users don’t have to settle for Marshmallow and then wait endlessly for Nougat OTA update.
