Samsung Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 2017 are almost here, but the exact date as to when we can expect them is still unknown.
Not so long ago, serial leaker Evan Blass confirmed that the Galaxy J7 2017 will be carried by a number of U.S. carriers, among them Verizon Wireless and AT&T. The same story can also be confirmed by listings on the official Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA) website where several models of this phone had been certified with Android 7.0 Nougat on board.
Even though the WFA listings basically confirmed that Android 7.0 Nougat will be running the show when Samsung Galaxy J7 will be unveiled, the rest of the specs sheet has not been confirmed just yet. In addition, there are very few details doing rounds with regards to the Galaxy J5 2017, instead, a lot is revolving around the Galaxy J3 2017 and Galaxy J7 2017.
Now, according to fresh leaks, Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 and Galaxy J7 2017 will be coming in with premium metallic housings. The design materials that are usually reserved for the high-end phones are slowly making their way to the low-end market. We recently saw new designs for the Galaxy A 2017 series and as it appears, the same will be happening to the low-end Galaxy J 2017 series as well.

In terms of specs, the details are still vague. However, rumors say that the Galaxy J7 2017 will come with a 5.5-inch Full HD screen, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 2GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. As for the Galaxy J5 2017, you get a slightly smaller 5.2-inch display screen that should keep the same resolution as last year’s model. The cameras will be the same at 13MP for the rear snapper and 5MP for the selfie snapper, but the Galaxy J5 2017 could come with a slightly weaker processor, possibly a Snapdragon 617.
Like other rumors before this one, treat the latest with a grain of salt, but given that the Galaxy J5 2016 and Galaxy J7 2016 were announced in March last year, we expect that the same should happen this year with the 2017 models. In short, we should know more details about these phones in the coming days.
