Latest Galaxy J7 Duo leak reveals specs


Last updated: April 10th, 2018 at 17:46 UTC+01:00

An unreleased Samsung device bearing model number SM-J720F was discovered a couple of weeks ago in a listing at the FCC which suggested that Samsung had a new J series handset in the pipeline. Subsequent reports have revealed that this device is going to be launched as the Galaxy J7 Duo. It’s likely going to slot in between the Galaxy J7 (2017) and the Galaxy J7 Pro.

A new leak has surfaced today which reveals some of the handset’s specifications, confirming speculation that this is going to be a bonafide mid-range device. It’s also going to the be the first budget handset from Samsung this year to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

Galaxy J7 Duo leaked specs

A photo from a sales training session for the upcoming Galaxy J7 Duo appears to have been leaked online and it mentions some of the core specifications of this device. If the leak is anything to go by, the Galaxy J7 Duo will feature a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display and a 1.6GHz octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

It will support external memory expansion up to 256GB. The LTE-compatible handset will also have a 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera with a 3,000mAh battery. We reported yesterday that the first firmware for the Galaxy J7 Duo are now available online and that confirmed that this is going to be the first budget smartphone from Samsung in 2018 to ship with Oreo out of the box. The leaked image reiterates this as well.

The firmware files that are available for this handset are for markets that include Turkey, India, UAE, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh. These are likely going to be all of the markets where this handset will be released.

This will also be the first budget device from Samsung to get Bixby but since it doesn’t have a dedicated Bixby button, the AI experience on the Galaxy J7 Duo will be limited to Bixby Home. Samsung is yet to confirm when it’s going to launch the Galaxy J7 Duo but it seems like it won’t be long before this handset is made official.
