    Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) with a 3,300 mAh battery hits FCC

    The Galaxy J7 (2016) has paid a visit to the FCC, leaving behind the documentation of its 3,300 mAh battery. Recently, the 2016 iteration of the Galaxy J7 surfaced on several occasions. Specifications of the device were revealed in GFXBench's database, and certification at the Bluetooth SIG marked a major step towards its release. Now, with the appearance at the FCC, another hurdle seems to have been cleared.

    Significantly, the FCC documents reveal a battery with a capacity of 3,300 mAh, which is a lot less than the previously rumoured 4,300 mAh. However, it's still 300 mAh more than the original Galaxy J7. Combine that with the device's Exynos 7870 processor with 14 nanometer technology, and it should be efficient enough to make those 3,300 milliamp-hours last at least a day or two.

    Further specs include a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, 3GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage space. In all likelihood, we may see a microSD slot for expanding the storage on the device, and possibly a fingerprint reader. The device tested at the FCC is the SM-J7109, which is a dual-SIM version that's headed for China.
