The latest to join the battalion of new releases is the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016). It was recently given a green light by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), putting the phone under the spotlight.


The certification highlights the battery capacity of the device, which is 3,300mAH, and not 4,300mAH as was claimed earlier. To many people, this might not be a good news, but you should know that the battery capacity is still 300mAH bigger than its predecessor, the Galaxy J7 variant.

While the launch date is a few days away, the upcoming Galaxy J7 appeared at the GFXBench test center and at the Bluetooth SIG, confirming several specs and features. Now that the phone has made it to the FCC, it is evident that the device will release soon, reports Tech Times.

Several benchmark testings were conducted to find out if the phone functions better when powered by Snapdragon or Exynos processor. Results indicate that there will be two variants. The Exynos model will be based on 7870 octa-core processor with Cortex-A53 and Mali-T830, whereas the Snapdragon model will carry Snapdragon 615 processor, according to GFX Bench. However, it should be noted that other reports claim that the device will come with Snapdragon 650 with Cortex-A72 cores, reports GSM Arena.

It sports a 5.5-inch screen with display resolutions 1,920×1,080 pixels. The camera features include a 12MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera.

The device will come with 16GB internal storage space, but the possibility of microSD card slot is on the cards.

Ubergizmo points out that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J7’s appearance at the FCC does not necessarily mean that the device is officially, but there might not be any more obstacles in the way of its release.
