Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) stops at the FCC before going official at AT&T
The Galaxy J7 (2017) is one of the many smartphones that haven't been confirmed by Samsung yet, but it's likely to make its debut on the market in the next couple of weeks.

Samsung is expected to launch the mid-range smartphone in the United States where multiple carriers will pick it up. We've previously learned the Galaxy J7 (2017) will be made available at Verizon as Galaxy J7 V.

However, TracFone will release it as Galaxy J7 Sky Pro, while Sprint, Virgin and Boost Mobile will offer the smartphone as Galaxy J7 Perx. Although we know AT&T will launch the Galaxy J7 (2017) as well, we haven't learned its market name yet.

The good news is the AT&T version of the smartphone has been recently granted FCC certification, the last step before official unveil. The AT&T Galaxy J7 (2017) is listed at FCC with model number SM-J727A, but other than that, no additional information is mentioned.

According to previous rumors, Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) should be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage.

Also, the mid-range handset is said to feature a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie camera. The Galaxy J7 (2017) will pack a 3,000 mAh battery, and it should run Android 7.0 Nougat.

The 2016 comes with a 720p, and I much prefer that for the better battery ...ha

But this 2017 version has a Snapdragon 625 SoC, which is way more efficient than the 2016 J7. I'm pretty sure this 2017 J7 will have better battery life than it's 2016 predecessor.

I really think it will have 3 GB ram atleast in Indian version and therby will be a nice deal here.
