Samsung might launch a new smartphone, the Galaxy J7 (2017) in coming weeks as the smartphone paid a visit to traditional benchmark sites- GeekBench and GFXBench. Along with the 2017 edition of Galaxy J7, the company might launch the Galaxy J5 (2017), and Galaxy J3 (2017) as both of them are spotted online as well in recent times.
Both the benchmark listings have revealed the specifications of the Galaxy J5 (2017). According to GeekBench listing, the smartphone will carry a model number SM-J530FM, boots Android Nougat and is powered by an octa-core chipset. The GFXBench listing revealed the complete specifications of the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) comes with a 4.8-inch HD display with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels, which is rather unusual as the Galaxy J3 (2017) leaked a couple of weeks ago showed up with a 5.2-inch display. Under-the-hood, the phone will have an Exynos 7870 SoC, which is an octa-core chip clocked at 1.5GHz. The listing also reveals 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, but there are no details related to storage expansion, though.
In terms of camera, the Galaxy J5 (2017) might pack a 12MP rear camera with PDAF, LED flash. The rear camera might not capture HDR photos and can record videos of 1080p quality. The phone also has a 12MP front-facing snapper, which also records videos of 1080p quality, according to the listing.
There are no details related to the battery capacity of the phone, but it boots Android Nougat out-of-the-box, which is a bonus. Samsung releases the Galaxy J series of phones in April every year, and it looks like the company is not breaking their schedule.
