Samsung rumored to expand the Galaxy J series with new Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 smartphones
According to a new report, Samsung will soon expand its Galaxy J line-up with the addition of two new smartphones. The new Samsung handsets will allegedly be called the Samsung Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7, and will border the line between the mid-range and the entry-level segments of the smartphone market. At the moment, the only official handset in the Galaxy J series is the Galaxy J1, a 4.3-inch smartphone with modest specs that Samsung launched in February.

Sammobile expects the Galaxy J5 to come with specs such as a 5-inch TFT LCD display running at 1280 by 720 pixels (HD), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of microSD-expandable internal storage, and a 2600 mAh battery. In the other corner, the Samsung Galaxy J7 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch TFT LCD 1280 x 720 display, a Marvel PXA1936 chipset, 1.5GB of RAM, either 4GB or 8GB of integrated storage, a microSD card slot, and a 3000 mAh battery. In the camera department, the two new Galaxy J handsets are rumored to come with either a 13MP or an 8MP primary sensor, as well as a 5MP secondary camera. Both the J5 and the J7 are said to come with support for LTE networks.

Given the fairly unimpressive specs, chances are that the new Galaxy J handsets won't drill a hole in your pocket. An earlier leak revealed that a Samsung smartphone thought to be the Galaxy J7 was valued at the equivalent of $255 when imported in India for R&D purposes.

Does Samsung even provide updates for these phones. Probably not.
