The Galaxy J7 (2016) just passed through GFXBench, and there are a lot of surprises here. The Galaxy J1 (2016) has already been quietly revealed and the Galaxy J5 (2016) recently passed through a benchmark as well, so a new Galaxy J series could be available soon. An upgraded Galaxy J7 should be launching as well, as the Galaxy J7 (2016) has also passed through GFXBench.
One of the surprises about the Galaxy J7 (2016) is the fact that the RAM has been doubled to 3GB from the previous model, which had 1.5GB of RAM. Another surprise is that this device won’t arrive with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, or at least according to GFXBench. The device will arrive with Android 5.1.1 by default, which isn’t bad at all but it’s rather disappointing.
It will pack a 5.5-inch 1080p display, an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor capped at 1.5 GHz, 2.7GB of RAM, and 16GB internal storage. It will feature a 13-megapixel rear shooter with 1080p video recording, and a 5-megapixel front shooter. Finally, the Galaxy J7 (2016) does have a couple of minor downsides such as a lack of gyroscope and the lack of barometer, but this isn’t anything major.
