Benchmarks of the 2017 variant of the Samsung Galaxy J7 with Android Nougat onboard has been leaked online.
First spotted on Geekbench, the listing shows that the 2017 Galaxy J7 will come equipped with the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clocked at 2.21GHz along with 2GB or RAM. Compared to that, the 2016 variant of the device came with a Snapdragon 615 octa-core clocked at 1.6 GHz alongside 2GB of RAM.
So far, this is the only info that can be extracted from the listing. Although, past rumors had suggested that the next-generation handset will be flaunting a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1280x1080p resolution.
Apart from that, the new J7 will probably also sport a 13MP camera, as well as a 5MP selfie snapper. As for the battery, it is possible that Samsung will include a 3,000 mAh battery which is decent, but 10% less compared to the Galaxy J7 (2016).
Other key specs may include 16GB native storage that can be further expanded to 128GB using a microSD card. However, some speculations also suggest that Samsung will probably upgrade the built-in storage to 32GB or more.
There’s no official word as such regarding the actual release date for the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017). However judging by the fact that the company has already made the Galaxy A (2017) series official, the release of the Galaxy J7 (2017) also seems imminent.
Note that these are only rumors — however credible. It seems like somebody who had a prototype of the device ran it on Geekbench 4, thus allowing a sneak peek into the forthcoming budget phone’s specs and features.
