A few days ago the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) was spotted on GFXBench and now fresh reports have emerged via a kernel source which reveal the related specs and features of the phone. If rumors turn true, the upcoming Galaxy J7 smartphone is expected to be released in late spring this year.

Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 650 processor, the device will feature a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. It will offer a microSD card slot for scopes of expandable memory storage. You can expect power-packed performance from the phone having a 4,300mAH battery.

There were further reports that the processor will be supported by an Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM. However, a recent benchmark revelation showed that the phone will feature an inferior Snapdragon 615 with a 16GB internal storage capacity.

IBTimes reports that the Galaxy J7 2016 model should release in June since its predecessor will complete a year’s cycle by this time.
