Samsung is mum on the Galaxy J7 (2016), but reports have suggested that it will come in June. The fact that it has been cleared by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Chinese telecom equipment certification authority TENAA and Bluetooth SIG, is a hint that its release is not far off. It is expected to be released in China before being pushed to other Asian and European markets.
