New Samsung Galaxy J7 pops up in FCC, the 4,300 mAh battery rumor dies
Samsung's Galaxy A line may bring the bling to midrange, but they are also a bit on the pricey side. The A3, A5, and A7 do have their budget counterparts, however, in the face of the Galaxy J3, J5, and J7. With a slight hardware downgrade and plasticky bodies, the J series are targeted more at the cost-aware crowd.

So, we've recently seen Samsung refresh the A5 and A7 with 2016 models and we've also seen plenty of reports about 2016 editions of the J5 and J7 as well. Leaked benchmarks suggest that the J5 could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, while the J7 may have two variants – one rocking the Snapdragon 615, the other equipped with a Samsung homebrewed Exynos 7870 humming under its hood. What was really impressive about earlier rumors, however, is that the Galaxy J7 was said to have a 4,300 mAh cell under its hood.

Unfortunately for anyone who may have been getting their hopes up for an insane battery life from the midrange phablet, a recent visit to the FCC by the smartphone in question revealed that it only has a 3,300 mAh battery in tow. Well, “only” is not the right way to put it, as that's still a pretty big cell (bigger than the battery in the Galaxy Note 4 even), just not the insane size that earlier rumors claimed.

In light of reports that claim the Galaxy S7 will be able to achieve a 2-day battery life with its alleged 3,000 mAh cell, it's interesting to see whether the J7 would be able to do even better, since it will have less pixels to light up, and a less powerful processor to feed, yet – a larger juicebox.
