Samsung is planning to release the Galaxy J7 (2016) soon, perhaps not long after the unveiling of its flagship devices, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016) in Barcelona.
Expectations from the upcoming mid-range smartphone, the Galaxy J7 (2016), is high after the success of its predecessor. The 2016 edition of the original Galaxy J7 is expected to be released in June.
According to a report by SamMobile, the device, likely to come with a 3,300mAh battery, has been spotted on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The Galaxy J7 (2016) has earlier passed Bluetooth SIG certification along with the Galaxy J5 (2016), giving a hint that its launch is imminent.
The device was spotted with an Exynos 7870 processor, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and a 2GB RAM on Geekbench benchmark. However, a report by GFXBench has claimed that it will sport a 5.5-inch display with 1,920x1,080 pixels, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocking at 1.5GHz, house Adreno 405 GPU, and run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. It is also expected to come packed with a 10GB internal storage, a 3GB RAM, a 12MP main camera and a 5MP front-snapper.
Samsung is yet to reveal any detail about the Galaxy J7 (2016), but it is most likely to have several feature upgrades over its predecessor.
