Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) full specs and press renders leaked out

Samsung is expected to launch three new Galaxy J series smartphones this year, each belonging to the mid-range category: Galaxy J3, Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 (2017).

We've reported about each of them several times, especially that variations of these models have already made it to the United States at various carriers.

One of the three upcoming smartphones that's expected to land in Europe, the Galaxy J5 (2017) has just emerged in press renders, along with information about its specs.

The Galaxy J5 (2017) has a premium look thanks to the metal body and revamped design. Specs-wise, the smartphone isn't bad either, as the phone is said to include a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor inside, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.

The phone's 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display supports HD (720p) resolution, which is quite decent for a mid-range device. The back and front sides feature 13-megapixel cameras with f/1.7 and f/1.9 aperture, respectively.

It's also worth noting that the physical Home button on the front houses a fingerprint sensor. Also, LTE support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity will be included.

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, and it will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery. The smartphone is expected to be introduced in Europe in June for €279 outright.
