Check out this render of the Verizon bound Samsung Galaxy J7 V

1
Back in January, we told you that the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) had been certified by the FCC. That made us think that perhaps the Galaxy J7 could be headed to the U.S. And that thought was confirmed today by a tweet sent out by reliable tipster Evan Blass. According to Blass, the SM-727 is headed to Verizon as the Samsung Galaxy J7 V. No doubt the ""V" stands for Verizon. In addition to Big Red, the phone will be available from Tracfone as the Samsung Galaxy J7 Sky Pro. You might recall that earlier this month, we told you Samsung had trademarked the J7 Sky Pro name in the U.S.
 
The Galaxy J7 (2017) features a 5.5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 625 chipset carrying an octa-core 2GHz CPU, and the Adreno 506 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage. A 13MP camera graces the back of the phone, while a 5MP selfie snapper can be found in front. Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

Blass' tweet hints that the phone will also be made available to other stateside carriers. Other names that he previously mentioned as possible destinations for the Galaxy J7 (2017) included AT&T and U.S. Cellular. Earlier this month, a version of the phone with the model number SM-727A was spotted on GFXBench. This is probably the AT&T variant of the device.
