Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) said to get better cameras, fingerprint scanner

It’s no secret that Samsung has the Galaxy J (2017) series in the pipeline. According to a new report, the Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) will both receive better cameras and a fingerprint scanner. The report is accompanied by pictures which compare the specifications between the 2016 and 2017 models of the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7.

According to the report, both handsets are going to have a metal body, a fingerprint scanner and better cameras than they did last year. The Galaxy J7 (2016) and Galaxy J5 (2016) had a 13-megapixel f/1.9 rear and 5-megapixel f/1.9 front camera while both handsets are now expected to a 13-megapixel f/1.7 rear camera and a 13-megapixel f/1.9 front camera with flash.

If this report is true, then the new handsets should feel considerably more premium than their predecessors. They’re claimed to tout a full metal body while last year’s models only had a metal frame.

As far as specs go, the Galaxy J7 (2017) is said to feature a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, an octa-core 1.6GHz processor with 3GB RAM and 16GB of storage. It may also feature a LTE Cat.6 chip, a 3,600mAh battery and Nougat.

The Galaxy J5 (2017) specs will receive a bump as well. Expect a 5.2-inch HD Super AMOLED display with an octa-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB RAM and 16Gb of storage. A 3,000mAh battery, LTE Cat.6 chip and Nougat may also be onboard.

None of this has been confirmed as yet by Samsung so take it with a grain of salt. The Galaxy J7 (2017) and Galaxy J5 (2017) are expected to be priced at 339 euro and 279 euro respectively.
