Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) vs. Galaxy J7 (2016) specs comparison leaks

Although Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) has already been released in the US under different names, the standard model has yet to be officially introduced. Rumor has it, Samsung plans to announce the Galaxy J7 (2017) sometime in June, along with another mid-range Android smartphone, the Galaxy J5 (2017).

Since we've already reported about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) not long ago, let's take a look at what its bigger brother has to offer concerning specs.

Keep in mind that the following information is based on a comparison chart that shows the alleged specs of the Galaxy J7 (2017) lined up against the last year model. The good news is most of the details in the leaked image come in line with previous reports about the phone.

That being said, it's worth pointing out that the Galaxy J7 (2017) will have a different design, not just better specs. According to the chart, the new Galaxy J7 features a full metal body, whereas the previous model comes with a metal frame.

The 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display got an upgrade as well, so it now supports a full HD (1080p) resolution, not just HD (720p). Unlike the Galaxy J7 (2016), which packs a 5-megapixel selfie camera, the new model boasts an impressive 13-megapixel camera on the front

The 13-megapixel primary camera on the back features f/1.7 aperture, as opposed to Galaxy J7 (2016)'s camera that has a f/1.9 aperture. Another upgrade is LTE Cat 6 (instead of Cat 4), as well as VoLTE and VoWiFi support.

On the inside, the Galaxy J7 (2017) packs a 1.6GHz octa-core processor, coupled with 3GB RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. The Home button on the front hides the fingerprint sensor.

The smartphone will run Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box, and it's supposed to be powered by a large 3,600 mAh battery. Reports claim Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) will be launched in Europe in June for €339.
