Samsung Galaxy J7 and J5 (2016) Photos are Out
Late last month, we got some specifications of the new, updated Galaxy J7 handset. Samsung had launched the Galaxy J7 and J5 in summer last year, which were the first handsets to feature front-facing LED lights. 2016 has been all about updating the Galaxy series. Today, we have some photos of the Galaxy J7 and J5, released by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center.
The J7 and J5 look very similar to their predecessors, expect the 2016 models will have some bumped up specs and will come with a tad bigger screen size. The Galaxy J7 (2016) will have a 5.5-inch 1080p display while the J5 (2016) will have a smaller 5.2-inch 720p display.
Under the hood, the Galaxy J7 will pack a Snapdragon 650 SoC paired with 3GB of RAM. The 2016 model of the J7 will come with a 13MP camera on the back, with a 5 MP shooter at the front. The kernel code also lists the J7 to come packing a fingerprint sensor and lists a 4300mAh rated battery to power the device.
The Galaxy J5 (2016), on the other hand, will have lower specs, being the smaller and cheaper of the two. While the cameras on both the devices remain the same, the J5 will be powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage.
Samsung has yet to make the devices official, and what we know so far are only based off of the Chinese certification listings. Since the Galaxy J7 has already been certified, the launch of the devices can be expected within this month.
