Earlier this year, renowned leakster Evan Blass had revealed that two Samsung smartphones carrying the model numbers SM-J737V and SM-J337V would launch on Verizon sometime later this year. The SM-J737V has now made an apperance on the popular Geekbench benchmark database, revealing a few key details. According to Blass, the smartphone will be marketed as the Galaxy J7 Aero when it goes on sale at Verizon Wireless in the US.
Galaxy J7 Aero: Geekbench Listing Reveals Exynos 7885 SoC, 2GB of RAM
According to the Geekbench listing for the Galaxy J7 Aero, the smartphone will be powered by an octa-core Exynos 7885 SoC. The Exynos 7885 is a relatively new mobile SoC that was announced in January this year. It uses two Cortex-A73 cores clocked at up to 2.2 GHz and six Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz. Powering the graphics is an ARM Mali-G71 MP2 GPU. Manufactured on a 14nm process, the Exynos 7885 has so far been seen on the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) mid-range smartphones. What seems a little strange, however, is that Samsung has decided to couple the powerful SoC with just 2GB of RAM on the Galaxy J7 Aero. In terms of the actual performance, the Galaxy J7 Aero prototype managed a single-core score of 1170 points and a multi-core score of 4042 points. The Geekbench listing has also confirmed that the smartphone will be running on the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out of the box at launch, with Samsung’s Experience UI running on top.
Galaxy J7 Aero: Expected to be a Verizon-Exclusive
As we mentioned above already, the Galaxy J7 Aero will be available exclusively via Verizon Wireless in the US. The smartphone is expected to be a variant of the Galaxy J7 (2018), which was made official in the US last month, along with the Galaxy J3 (2018). In terms of design, the Galaxy J7 Aero is expected to be more or less identical to the Galaxy J7 (2018) with a physical home button on the front. The Galaxy J7 (2018) features a 5.5-inch 720 x 1280 HD resolution display, 13MP rear camera with an f/1.7 aperture, and a 13MP selfie camera with an f/1.9 aperture lens.
