There are only 2 days left till Christmas and a little over a week left in 2016, and some smartphone brands have already had part of their lineup leaked or have teased offerings for next year. Samsung, in particular, has already had their A series lineup of phones for 2017 and it seems the sneaky leaksters, OnLeaks and 91mobiles, aren’t done with Korean brand for the year; giving us renders and a 360 video for the popular Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017).
Aside from that silver stripe that streaks across the back of the device and camera setup, it seems like the design for the Galaxy J7 won’t be seeing to many changes. It’ll have the same speaker placement above the power button, which we saw in the J7 Prime, and all the ports we’ve come accustomed to in recent years (i.e. a micro USB port and 3.5mm jack). For its 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, we will be getting a bit of a bump in terms of resolution, as it will now be in Full HD.
In case you’re wondering about the phone’s internals, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) will have an octa-core Exynos processor. This will be paired with 3GB of Ram and 16GB of expandable storage. For its cameras, the J7 will sport a 13-megapixel camera for its main shooter and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Providing juice to the system will be a 3000mAh battery and running the show will be Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
In terms of pricing, we can expect the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) to be pretty much come at around the same price point as it’s previous iteration with reports of the phone being priced at Rs. 13,686 or Php 10,062; expect a bit of a bump when it gets here though. The J7 (2016) was released in April and was announced at MWC 2016 in March, so if the Korean brand keeps to it release schedules — as it normally does — we should be seeing the 2017 iteration of the Samsung Galaxy J7 at around the same time.
