Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 spotted at FCC; launch happening soon?


The Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 was spotted on the web a few days ago, giving us a glimpse of the phone from the rear. Now, the device has been officially certified by the FCC ( Federal Communications Commission). While this does not reveal any significant details, it reaffirms the model number of the handset, SM-J530FM/DS.

The Galaxy J5 2017 had been spotted on the Geekbench and GFXBench websites in the past, revealing several details about the smartphone. The listing affirmed that the Galaxy J5 2017 will have a 4.8-inch 720p display. However, contradictory to the GFXBench listing, it was found that the phone is said to offer a 5.2-inch screen. Additionally, the handset is expected to be furnished with a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 SoC with 2GB of RAM. The smartphone is also expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.

The Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 might offer a 12-megapixel camera at the rear and front, 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a regular 3.5mm audio jack. In addition to this, the phone is likely to be available only in 16GB of internal storage space. With Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FCC certification already having been given to the smartphone, could it be that the company is planning to make the Galaxy J5 2017 official in the coming days? Stay tuned with us to learn more.
