Speculations are rife that Samsung will launch another Galaxy J smartphone, dubbed Galaxy J7 Max with bigger screen amongst the other three.


The three Galaxy J smartphones will be- Galaxy J3 (2017), Galaxy J5 (2017), and Galaxy J7 (2017). All the three smartphones have already received necessary certifications such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth SIG, and FCC certification. Also, the smaller of all, the Galaxy J3 (2017) was officially launched in the US via AT&T.

The other two smartphones are expected to launch soon as well. Today, posted the complete specifications of the second smartphone in the list- the Galaxy J5 (2017) along with official renders. The leak states that the phone would become official in Europe at any point of time from now carrying a price tag of 279 Euro (approx. Rs. 19,500).

According to the leak, the Galaxy J5 (2017) will sport a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED HD panel. The device will include an Exynos 7870 processor with a 1.6GHz octa-core CPU. The chipset will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage, which can be expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.

The device is said to pack a 13MP camera at the back with f/1.7 aperture and a 13MP front-facing camera with a f/1.9 aperture up front. Samsung is also adding a fingerprint sensor with the Galaxy J5 (2017), and it will be embedded into the home button.

Samsung will add a 3000mAh battery on the phone, and it will boot Android 7.0 Nougat right out-of-the-box. All the three phones may be launched in India in June after the global launch. Samsung will price them steeply, and it will sell the phones both offline and online.
