As per the information available in the SM-J737S’ Geekbench’s test results, the yet unannounced smartphone appears to be equipped with the Exynos 7870 processor and 2GB of RAM. The device appears to be running Android 8.0 Oreo. The phone scored 736 points in the single-core CPU test and 3,764 points in the multi-core CPU test.

The Exynos 7870 chipset’s CPU appears to be clocked at 1.6GHz. The entry-level chipset was announced in February last year, and is based on Samsung’s 14nm FinFET process. The SoC (system on a chip) consists of eight 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores clocked at 1.6GHz and the ARM Mali-T830 MP1 GPU clocked at 700MHz. It is compatible with LP-DDR3 RAM and comes with a Cat. 6 LTE radio, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.2.

The phone was released with Android 7.0 Nougat when it was released last year. It was powered by the same Exynos 7870 processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. There’s a microSD card slot for storage expansion and a 3300mAh battery.
