Samsung Galaxy J7 2nd gen specs appear in benchmarking
Samsung’s Galaxy J series released last year and the new Galaxy J1 2016 was recently introduced. The Galaxy J5 2nd gen has also leaked, and now it’s the turn of the new J7 that has just shown up in a benchmark spot. This has revealed some Samsung Galaxy J7 2nd gen specs and a few changes from the current version.
There have been growing indicators of Galaxy J 2016 smartphones recently, although the quiet launch of the Galaxy J1 2nd gen in Dubai last week caught us by surprise. The arrival of the new J1 is expected to follow to further markets very soon. Just yesterday we saw leaked specs for the Galaxy J5 2016 from a benchmark appearance, and now the Samsung Galaxy J7 2nd gen has appeared for benchmarking.
GFXBench documentation shows the Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 with model number SM-J710x. Specifications include a 1.5GHz Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, Adreno 405 graphics, and a 5.5-inch display with Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080. It has 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capture, and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
These specs have not been officially confirmed, but if this is accurate the Samsung Galaxy J7 2nd gen has a higher resolution display, and more RAM than the original version. It’s perhaps worth questioning the 3GB of RAM though, as this would be double the amount of RAM than the current J7. The original Galaxy J5 and J7 both had 1.5GB of RAM, and the recent benchmark for the Galaxy J5 2nd gen showed a step up to 2GB of RAM, so 3GB for the J7 2016 looks optimistic. However, it’s always possible so fingers crossed.
The benchmark also shows the Samsung Galaxy J7 2nd gen as running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop rather than Android 6.0 Marshmallow, although many will hope that will have changed when it reaches a release. There’s still no news on when this new J7 will arrive, but considering the Galaxy J1 2nd gen has already launched we expect the next-gen J5 and J7 models soon.
