This is not the first time leaks of a Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 have come out. However, the latest report is a concrete pointer that indeed the successor to the Galaxy J7 2016 is being lined up really fast.
Samsung has been working on updating the Galaxy J series, with Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 making an appearance on China’s TENAA earlier in the year. Now, the latest to show up is the Galaxy J7 2017, which carries model number SM-J727V.
Although not confirmed, the model number tells it all as it follows the current Samsung Galaxy J7 2016, which has model number SM-J710 while the 2015 version comes with model number SM-J700. Zauba is India’s import and export listing website and while it tells out about the incoming Galaxy J7 2017, it says little about the rest of the specs sheet.
One thing that the leak is probably clear about is the pricing of the Galaxy J7 2017. If things remain constant, the phone could come in with a price tag of about $205. Still, the site is very clear that the single unit that has been shipped to the country is meant for testing purposes and not consumer use.
Even though there are no details on the specs and features that the Galaxy J7 2017 will carry, previous leaks on the same phone have highlighted some really interesting upgrades over the current model. For starters, the screen size will be retained at 5.5 inches. However, this time, you get a Full HD 1080p resolution as opposed to the 720p used on the two models from 2016 and 2015.
Apparently, Samsung will use an Exynos processor on the Galaxy J7 2017, but a Snapdragon variant is also expected. This year’s model has a Snapdragon 617 and Exynos 7870 variant, both with a RAM of 2GB, but the incoming model will add 1GB to the RAM. The camera should feature 13MP and 8MP lenses on the back and front, respectively.
The battery unit of this year’s Galaxy J7 stands at 3300mAh, but reports suggest Samsung could reduce this size on the 2017 model and instead come with a 3000mAh unit.
