Official images of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) now available

Following the release of the Galaxy J5 (2016), Samsung was believed to be working on a larger Galaxy J7 model. This handset was expected to carry the same metal chassis and design that we saw on the Galaxy J5 but in a slightly bigger form factor. The handset even made its way to the FCC, so its arrival was not exactly a secret. Today, the China Mobile variant of the Galaxy J7 (2016) has leaked out in all its glory, revealing a familiar design and some carrier branding as well.

The Galaxy J7 (2016) is said to be packing a 5.5-inch 720p display, a 1.7 GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 (Cortex-A53 cores), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable), a 13-megapixel camera on the back, a 5-megapixel front camera, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and a 3,300 mAh battery underneath.

It is possible that the Galaxy J7 will be limited to China initially, but knowing Samsung, the handset should also make its way to other Asian markets as well as Europe. The 2016 Galaxy J7 is expected to be priced somewhere under €300 ($338), which is pretty steep for a mid-range offering such as this one.

It’s soooo unnecessary to release a 2016 version of the J series in sealed metal body that will practically blow the line between last year A series and this 2016 versions. They are perfect the way they are now for a low budget phone.
They only thing Samsung should add is its stock music app and 16gb of internal memory in the case of J5.
I recently bought the J5 as my secondary device for just £99 on vodafone and oh boy!!! I’m really impressed with this phone. For that price it has to be the best low budget phone by far. The screen of just 720×1280 is just really good and the phone is really snappy for basic tasks. The only other bad thing is the hideous round edges that makes it slippery as hell but not a problem with a cheap case for a better grip.

I don´t get people. They want premium materials for a low price? LOL… Of course it´s expensive if they are using the most expensive materials…

This may be wrong actually. The official specs from TENAA for the Exynos 7870 version include 3GB RAM, 5.5″ 1080p AMOLED Display and Android 5.1.1.
