The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) have been leaking for a while now, and a ton of new info just dropped. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll be able to see some seemingly official Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) renders, along with their specifications. Both the Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016) landed back in March last year, which means that it has been over a year since they launched, and the company still didn’t release their successors. Well, that might happen soon, as the Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) leaks have been getting more frequent lately.
As you can see, both of those smartphones will be made out of metal, and will ship with a physical home key below the display, which will be flanked by two capacitive keys. This is something we’re used to seeing from Samsung, and these two smartphones actually look identical in terms of the design. A power / lock key will be placed on the right-hand side on both of these phones, and the volume up and volume down keys will be included on the left. The aforementioned physical home key will also function as a fingerprint scanner, and the two devices will sport a 2.5D curved glass on top of their displays. That being said, let’s check out what specs can you expect on these two phones.
According to the leaked spec sheet, the Galaxy J5 (2017) will sport a 5.2-inch 720p (1280 x 720) Super AMOLED display, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The device will be fueled by an octa-core SoC running at 1.6GHz, and a 3,000mAh battery will be included in this package. Android Nougat will come out of the box, along with Samsung’s custom UI, and you can expect to get category 6 4G LTE connectivity here. A 13-megapixel shooter (f/1.7 aperture) will be placed on the back of the Galaxy J5 (2017), and a 13-megapixel snapper (f/1.9 aperture) will also be included on the front side of this phone, and will be flanked by a front-facing LED flash.
The Galaxy J7 (2017), on the other hand, will sport a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) Super AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. This phone will also be fueled an octa-core SoC running at 1.6GHz, though it will ship with a larger battery unit, a 3,600mAh battery. As far as 4G LTE is concerned, these two phones will be identical, and the same goes for their camera sensors as well. Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the Galaxy J7 (2017) as well, and so will Samsung’s custom UI.
