Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) could be launched in the US

News about a Galaxy J7 (2016) successor popped up online last summer, but we've only got more in-depth knowledge about the smartphone this month.

Renders of the unannounced Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) were published online not long ago, but the smartphone was also spotted at Geekbench, a benchmark database, so we know quite a little bit about its specs, too.

Well, it appears that we're closer to an official reveal than we might think, since the phone has just received its FCC certification, which makes it eligible for a release in the United States.

Obviously, the fact that the Federal Communications Commission certified the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) doesn't necessarily means the phone will be launched in the US, but it's a possibility.

The information is confirmed by a document listed at the US official certification authority, which mentions a device with model number SM-J727. That's the exact number of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017).

Based on previous reports, the Galaxy J7 (2017) is a mid-range smartphone powered by Android 7.0 Nougat. The phone is equipped with a Snapdragon 625 CPU and 3GB RAM. It's also said to sport a 5.5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie camera.
