After launching the Galaxy A (2016) series of smartphones, it looks like Samsung is working on new devices in its Galaxy J lineup of devices. The company already launched the Galaxy J1 (2016), and is already working on the Galaxy J5 (2016) and the Galaxy J7 (2016).

Details about the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) have been unearthed through some kernel sources. According to the information available right now, the Galaxy J7 (2016) comes with improved specifications and a very large battery, at least when compared to other smartphones from the company.

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) Specifications

  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system
  • 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, 401 ppi
  • 13-megapixel primary camera (Samsung S5K3L2XX sensor), autofocus, LED flash, and 1080p video recording
  • 5-megapixel secondary camera (Samsung S5K5E3YX sensor with 1.1µm pixel size), front-facing LED flash, ƒ/2.2 aperture, and 23mm lens
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and microSD card slot
  • 4,300 mAh battery

It looks like Samsung has understood the importance of good battery life as the new Galaxy J7 comes with a gigantic 4,300 mAh battery. Other specifications include a 5.5-inch display (most probably a Super AMOLED panel) with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution. The device will comes with a 13-megapixel primary camera with a front-facing LED flash and 1080p video recording, and a 5-megapixel secondary camera.

In terms of processing prowess, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor (formerly Snapdragon 618) with Adreno 510 GPU and 3GB RAM. In terms of storage, there’s 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for further storage expansion. Overall, it looks like a pretty good mid-range smartphone, especially for people who want long battery life.

The Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7 have been selling pretty well in India, and both have very good battery life. Now, Samsung seems to be thinking to offer even better battery life with the 2016 variants of the Galaxy J series. Looks like only the Gionee Marathon M5 has a battery with capacity larger than the upcoming Galaxy J7 (2016), and Samsung has a better record of releasing software updates.

Samsung has been releasing newer smartphones with large battery capacities. It recently announced the Galaxy A9 with a 4,000 mAh battery, and the Galaxy J7 (2016) seems to be even better. If only Samsung can price it correctly, it could be a great device in the mid-range price category. What do you think about the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016)?

No water proof. And it might be too heavy. Can anyone tell me the weight of this phone? Plus touchwiz which is not good.

All companies are going for water proof. It would be best to see your face after 3 years when no phone will come with user replaceble battery. One should accept changes.


LG has corrected the mistake that it made in G2 (non removable battery).

I will buy LG G5 or Note 4 this year end.

The above mobiles have user replaceable battery. Even Lumia 950 xl has removable battery. Microsoft and LG have corrected their mistakes. Still Sony and Samsung have to correct their mistake.

Do you know that Sony is cheating their mobile phone customers who come for warranty claim for water logged handsets despite being water proof?. So better yous hut yourself.
