Samsung is unstoppable in expanding its portfolio of mobile devices, and it has been more evident after the company launched both of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge flagships. Now that the mid-range spectrum needs to be filled up by the South Korean tech giant, we could be seeing the next Galaxy J7 for this year. Apparently, new press images have started leaking on the internet to show that Samsung is indeed updating the Galaxy J series.
Samsung may have stepped up the design language of the new Galaxy J7. The handset looks like it features a metal chassis, which is a rather big upgrade from the plastic build that the previous handset came with.
Rumours point out that the Samsung Galaxy J7 could feature a 5.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, which would put it on the same display size and resolution as the previous one. Samsung may also plan on outfitting the handset with a 1.7 GHz Exynos 7870 chipset with an octa-core processor. 2GB of RAM is likely to be in tow, and 16GB of internal storage that can be expandable via microSD card slot could come into play.
It also appears that the Galaxy J7 is no slouch either in terms of camera performance. Reports suggest that it will likely feature a 13MP primary snapper and a 5MP selfie shooter to deliver high-quality shots, although it’s still unknown what exact camera sensor it will feature.
As far as the battery life is concerned, it will feature a beefy 3,300 mAh of juice. Given the display size of the Galaxy J7, that seems like a logical approach for Samsung. Furthermore, the previous Galaxy J7 featured a 3,300 mAh of battery, so the company could also plan on an upgrade along the way.
Samsung is keeping mum on the release date for the handset, but we could be looking at a June 2016 release. Judging by the fact that it has already been cleared by the FCC, TENAA, and Bluetooth SIG, the Galaxy J7 could also follow the release of last year’s model.
