Expected to arrive in the US exclusively via Verizon Wireless, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Aero apparently has just surfaced on Geekbench. The listing for the SM-J737V device has been removed since it was spotted by MySmartPrice News, and the details it revealed include an Exynos 7885 processor, 2 GB RAM, and Android Oreo.

Evan Blass is constantly reporting on various upcoming handsets and, earlier this year, he mentioned the Samsung SM-J737V and SM-J337V. Now, the time has come for one of these two Verizon Wireless-bound devices to hit Geekbench. However, shortly after MySmartPrice News spotted the listing for the SM-J737V, the popular benchmark database removed it.

According to the listing mentioned above, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J7 Aero features an octa-core Exynos 7885 processor, which has been announced in January 2018. Next to this fresh chip, the Geekbench listing also revealed 2 GB of memory and an operating system based on Android 8.0 Oreo, most likely with Samsung's UI customizations on top.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Aero is supposed to arrive in the US as a Verizon Wireless exclusive device. Insiders familiar with the matter claim that this handset is closely related to the Galaxy J7 (2018) in terms of design and specs. The Galaxy J7 (2018) features a physical Home button, a 5.5-inch 720p display, and 13 MP cameras (one for selfies and one as the main shooter — not a dual setup on the back as most mid-rangers have been offering lately).

The recently released Galaxy J7 (2018) does not bring any major changes when compared to the last year's model, so if you enjoy what you see in the review embedded below, you might enjoy the upcoming Galaxy J7 Aero. However, there might be a few more weeks left until Verizon Wireless launches this handset in the US. We will get back to the SM-J737V and SM-J337V as soon as we find out anything new, so be sure to keep an eye on us.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
