Beyond the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) for AT&T, Samsung has yet to announce the newest iterative models to its J series, but leaks surrounding the Galaxy J5 (2017), and Galaxy J7 (2017) have not stopped. Fresh leaks bring more information on the Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) with respect to design, and the two smartphones were even spotted on the official Samsung website. In the meanwhile, the Galaxy J3 (2017) was spotted on TENAA, indicating an imminent launch in China.
Starting with the Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017), the two smartphones were spotted on Samsung’s official South Korean website, where they were listed briefly among the devices that are compatible with the Kids Mode feature. Of course, they have been removed since then, but this mishap pretty much cements the fact that the smartphones are incoming in the near future.
Also, first reviews of the two smartphones have been published on YouTube from somewhere in Russia, pretty much revealing everything about the smartphones – from design to specifications. The video reveal that both the phones are almost identical in design, with the only difference being in size.
Both the smartphones are said to now sport a full metal body, run on the latest Android Nougat software, and come with fingerprint scanning support underneath the Home Button. They are claimed to also support 4G VoLTE, something that was missing in the predecessors. While the rear cameras on both the smartphones remain at 13-megapixel, the front cameras see a bump to 13-megapixel as well with front flash. On the 2016 variants, the front camera was at 5-megapixel with no flash support.
Other tipped specifications on the Galaxy J5 (2017) include a 5.2-inch HD sAMOLED display, a 1.4GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The smartphone packs a 3000mAh battery, while the predecessor packs a 3100mAh battery. All of the other specifications are similar to its predecessor.
On the Galaxy J7 (2017), rumoured specifications include a 5.5-inch full-HD sAMOLED display, a 1.6GHz octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. The battery amps up to 3600mAh, while the predecessor packs only a 3300mAh battery. Both the devices are expected to launch soon, and the rumoured pricing is at EUR 279 (roughly Rs. 19,800) for the Galaxy J5 (2017), and EUR 339 (roughly Rs. 24,000) for the Galaxy J7 (2017).
The Galaxy J3 (2017) was spotted on TENAA revealing specifications and design details of the smartphone as well. Enlisted as model number SM-J3300, the smartphone is seen sporting the same front as the other two smartphones in the J series. Specification wise, it is tipped to sport a 5-inch HD display, a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 7570 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, and a 13-megapixel rear camera.
