Unannounced Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) and Galaxy J5 (2017) star in hands-on videos
Samsung has yet to announce the Galaxy J7 (2017) and Galaxy J5 (2017), but we've already seen renders showing both handsets. What's more, Samsung inadvertently confirmed the phones' existence, so we assume it won't be long before they'll hit the market. Until that happens, we can now take a look at the two upcoming phones in a couple of short video reviews made somewhere in Russia. The videos are not subtitled, but at least they provide the best look at the new Galaxy J series thus far.

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.
