One of the best smartphones we had the opportunity to not only encounter but also spend some quality time with was the Galaxy J7. The most upscale of Samsung’s budget Galaxy J lineup, the J7 ticked all the right slots. It had a big display for content consumption, a beefy 3,000mAh battery that lasts forever and LTE capability. That description may sound perfect but there is always room for improvement and who better than the maker to know that? Samsung has, apparently, been hard at work on an update to the J7 and it may not be long before we see it.
The 2016 edition of the Galaxy J7 has shown up on benchmarking application GFXBench’s site. The listing also reveals some interesting details about the device. For instance we know that the Galaxy J7 (2016) will pack a a 5.5-inch full HD display, an upgrade from the HD display on the current model. It will also have a Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, 16 GB internal storage and twice the amount of RAM on its predecessor, 3 GB. A 12-megapixel main camera backed by a 5-megapixel selfie shooter, NFC and Android 5.1.1 will also make it to the device. The battery capacity is expected to remain the same (3,000mAh) with improved performance optimization taking care of any disparities that may ensue as far as a change in the components (like the new full HD display which translates to more pixels needing a push) is concerned.
Samsung has already introduced into the market the 2016 version of the Galaxy J1 and this benchmark listing of the 2016 Galaxy J7 means that it is on the way. Since the J7 arrived alongside its smalling, the J5, last year, we expect the two any time soon.
