Images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017), case renders of which recently appeared online, have been leaked online thanks to serial leakster Evan Blass. He has also revealed the phone (Samsung SM-J727) may be coming to Verizon as the Samsung Galaxy J7 V, and to Tracfone as the J7 Sky Pro.
Specifications leaked earlier revealed that the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) might feature a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, and while the Geekbench listing (listed as Samsung SM-J727P) suggests the phone will be powered by an octa-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, its listing on GFXBench (listed as Samsung SM-J727A)) suggests that the phone will be powered by an octa-core 1.5GHz Samsung Exynos 7870 SoC. The phone is expected to have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space, and a variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space also seems to be in the works. Both Geekbench and GFXbench listings suggest the phone will run Android 7.0 Nougat.
Although there has been no formal announcement of the launch, the leaked press images of the phone’s lock screen shows April 10 as the date. The dates seen on Samsung phones press images have been the actual launch date for several products in the past. So there is reason to believe the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) may be officially launched on April 10th.
As with a lot of the information leaked prior to the official announcement of a product, many of the specifications are subject to change, and information is sometimes found to be inaccurate. We will have to wait until an official announcement to confirm the accuracy of these leaks. We hope to share more information with you soon. Watch this space!
