Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) leaked specs include Snapdragon 625 CPU, Android 7.0 Nougat
The Galaxy S8 is not the only smartphone Samsung plans to launch in the coming weeks, but it's the only flagship we will get until the second half of the year. Another Samsung handset that's already in the works, the Galaxy J7 (2017) will soon be announced.
The successor of last year year Galaxy J7 will include many improvements hardware-wise, such as a better CPU and a newer version of Android. A couple of renders of the Galaxy J7 (2017) have already leaked last year, so we already know what the phone might look like.
More recently, Samsung's mid-range smartphone was spotted at Geekbench, a benchmark that is often used to test handsets before they are made official.
The listing at Geekbench revealed that Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) will be equipped with a more than decent octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. Also, it confirms that the smartphone will run Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.
However, the benchmark results mention the Galaxy J7 (2017) packs only 2GB of RAM, even though previous rumors claim the smartphone will include 3GB RAM, which would be more appropriate to go along with the powerful CPU.
We're also expecting the phone to feature a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a secondary 5-megapixel front camera, 16GB storage, and a 5.5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution. Hopefully, the Galaxy J7 (2017) will be revealed sooner rather than later.
