Unannounced Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) and Galaxy J5 (2017) star in hands-on videos
Both the Galaxy J7 (2017) and Galaxy J5 (2017) are made out of metal, and share the same design, although they do differ in size. The handsets run Android 7 Nougat, and - unlike any previous Galaxy J phone - they feature fingerprint scanners.
The new Galaxy J7 sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display, further offering an octa-core Samsung Exynos 7870 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3600 mAh battery. There's a 13 MP camera on the back of the handset, and another 13 MP camera on the front, both with LED flashes. All in all, this seems to be a pretty capable mid-range smartphone.
The new Galaxy J5 is also powered by an Exynos 7870 processor, and has 13 MP rear and front cameras, but it only offers 2 GB of RAM and a 3000 mAh battery. Oh, and its display is a 5.2-inch 720p one.
Right now, it's not clear if the Galaxy J (2017) series - which should also include a new J3 - will be officially released in the US. However, since various older Galaxy J7 and J3 variants are available stateside via carriers like Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile, we assume that at least some of the new models will make it to the US. We'll let you know more about the Galaxy J (2017) family as soon as Samsung announces it.
