Samsung’s Galaxy J series of smartphones could be launched very soon, if one is to go by the numerous certifications that these phones have received. Many of these phones have also been seen on various benchmarking sites, giving us details about their hardware specifications. Now, one device from the series, the Samsung Galaxy J7 2017, was spotted for the second time on GFXBench revealing a different model number but the same specifications as spotted earlier in February.
The Galaxy J7 2017 will sport a 5.5-inch display with a 1280x720p resolution. The phone will be powered by a 1.5GHz Exynos 7870 chipset coupled with Mali-T830 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. In addition to this, a 2GB RAM variant with 16GB of storage is also said to be in the works since it was first noticed on GFXBench a few months ago. Both variants will boot Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box with the company’s own custom UI on top.
As far as the camera is concerned, the Galaxy J7 2017 is said to feature a 12-megapixel camera at the front and back. Interestingly, the phone benchmarked earlier on GFXBench revealed an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera setup. Furthermore, the Geekbench listing also suggests an octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC for the Galaxy J7 2017. We’re guessing that the Snapdragon chipset variant could be for the US markets, whereas the Exynos 7870 one will be launched in Eastern countries.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 also received FCC and Bluetooth SIG certifications some time ago. The company hasn’t yet confirmed an exact time frame for the launch of the Galaxy J series smartphones, but we expect them to be launched soon.
