Samsung Galaxy J Series has been a huge success in India and other price sensitive markets. Even though the specs sheet doesn’t do justice to the J Series pricing, the brand value has helped significantly in making the smartphones succeed. For those who have been waiting for the 2017 edition of Galaxy J5, we have some great news.

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) has appeared in a certification filing with the Wi-Fi alliance. This confirms that the Korean giant is indeed working on the budget-friendly J-series.

Not much information has leaked through the filing. The device comes with model number SM-J530F, the dual-band Wi-Fi support, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. It’s strange to see the dated OS, but we believe Samsung will somehow manage the Nougat flavor at the launch time.

Just to remind our users, the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2017) were launched in April last year, hence, we can expect the 2017 variants to launch around the same time this year. Still, nothing official has come from the Samsung side.

For those who don’t know, Samsung is expected to launch the Flagship offering, Samsung Galaxy S8 in March or April. Therefore, the J Series won’t see the daylight before that happens.

As for the 2016 editions of Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7 are concerned, the Korean giant is yet to clear the air on the Android 7.0 Nougat update. There is no confirmation if and when the company plans to update the software on those devices.

Let us know what you make of the Samsung Galaxy J Series in the comments section below. Should Samsung continue the affordable mid-rangers or kill them to focus on limited offerings?
