Galaxy J7 (2017) listing on Geekbench reveals specs and Android Nougat


Last updated: January 16th, 2017 at 07:43 UTC+02:00

About a month ago, we reported that the 2017 variant of the Samsung Galaxy J7 received Wi-Fi certification and that the documentation revealed the device to be running Android 7.0 Nougat. If you needed further validation, the Galaxy J7 (2017) was recently spotted on Geekbench and was also listed running Android 7.0 Nougat.

According to Tech Times, someone ran a prototype of the device on Geekbench with model number SM-J727P. The handset recorded a single-core score of 889 and a multi-core score of 4200. The test also provided some insight into the official specs. The Galaxy J7 (2017) is listed to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm processor clocking in at 2.21 GHz and will have 2GB of RAM.

Previous rumors have the smartphone sporting a 5.5-inch Full HD display, an Adreno GPU, a 3,000mAh removable battery, a 13-megapixel rear snapper, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Additionally, it is expected to offer 16GB of internal storage with the ability to expand memory via microSD. With the Geekbench listing showing 2GB of RAM, it squashes the previous rumor of the device having an upgraded 3GB of RAM, although the Chinese variant could feature higher RAM like the 2016 iteration of the Galaxy J7.

In the US, it is expected to be carried by Verizon Wireless. However, there is still no concrete release date at this time.
