The updated Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 have been in the rumor mill for a while, also being spotted online as they grabbed their certifications from organizations like Bluetooth SIG or TENAA. Now, the two Android-powered handsets are finally official. While they do not bring any major changes, they definitely improve a few features and specs when compared to their predecessors.
Both handsets keep the camera setup used by last year's Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 - a front 5 MP camera with LED flash and a 13 MP main image snapper on the back. The Galaxy J7 features a 1.6 GHz octa-core processor (probably the new Exynos 7870, but not officially confirmed yet), 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage and microSD support, LTE, NFC, as well as a 3300 mAh battery. Its full HD Super AMOLED display has 5.5 inches in size while the cheaper Galaxy J5 has a 5.2-inch 720p display. The new Galaxy J5 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 420 processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB storage and microSD slot, NFC, Bluetooth, 3100 mAh battery.
Both handsets run Android Marshmallow with TouchWiz on top and come in gold, pink, or white. No prices have been listed yet, but more information should come out soon. After all, the Galaxy J family is present in multiple markets worldwide, so it is all a matter of time. We will keep you posted.
