GFXBench appearance for the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) reveals specs

Just the other day, we told you about the specs found on the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) after the device went through the GFXBench benchmark test. Today, it was the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) that was put through its paces, revealing what we can expect to see on the second-generation model of the phone. Sammy has already unveiled the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016), and we would expect the rest of the next-gen Galaxy J models to follow soon.

According to GFXBench, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) will feature a 5.5-inch display, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. While the screen size is the same from the OG model, the resolution is getting a bump from the 720p that the phone sported last year. The Snapdragon 615 chipset remains under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU. 3GB is on board, double the 1.5GB of RAM that was found on the OG Galaxy J7. And 16GB of native storage remains on board.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) will still have a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing selfie shooter, just like the OG model offered. Last year's model also came equipped with a 3000mAh battery, and we would expect about the same for the 2016 version of the handset. Android 5.1.1 will be pre-installed on the Galaxy J7 (2016).

Just off topic: The discussion I see in phonearena and most of the people who comment are some of the worst among tech sites. I find that the most popular websites like phonearena, gsmarena, droid-life, macrumors, androidcentral have some of the worst discussion boards in terms of technical content or know-how. It's really hard to find anyone out here with 'decent' technical knowledge or understanding of the industry. You are likely to find better discussion in XDA, B3D etc.,

well.. this is not a place to exclusively discuss something technical, its a place where some common people who interest in phone stuff reads some uptodate article to keep up with new stuff in this field :-/ and its not like someone who write comment on string theory videos on youtube must have good grade in physic class :-/

Just like the what I said yesterday that they will leak the J7(2016). Next week or next month the E5, E7 (2016). I saw the A3(6) & A5(6) yesterday and very nice design.

E5 & E7 won't come as Samsung wants to keep their products portfolio very thin.

Who knows right. Maybe they will make a new design for the E5 & E7(2016). In my own opinion E5 & E7 is much better design compared to J5 & J7.

Yes, I agree. E5 & 7 had much better build quality than j series.

Specs for A7 (2016) and J7 (2016) look nearly identical?

The A7 (2016) was a very small upgrade on the A7 (2015). It downgraded the chipset, added OIS, more RAM, glass body and a fingerprint scanner and that is pretty much it. It is also more expensive than the A5 (2016) despite having the exact same specs (except for screen size and RAM)
