The device spotted on Geekbench carries model number SM-J7109, apparently uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC, and will probably go on sale in other markets than China.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) is already official in China, where it was unveiled next to the Galaxy J5 (2016) last month. While the metal-frame mid-ranger for the Chinese market is powered by the Exynos 7870 SoC, the rest of the world will get a Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered variant.

While Samsung still has to confirm its existence, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) with a Qualcomm processor has just appeared on Geekbench. The model number of the handset is SM-J7109 and its processor runs at 1.52 GHz. Previous rumors mentioned a Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 SoC, but it looks like the handset spotted on Geekbench has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 under the hood. 

The other specs are the same as those of the Exynos-powered variant - 5.5-inch full HD display, 3 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, as well as microSD support, 5 MP front camera and 13 MP back camera, 3300 mAh battery. Same as its, the Snapdragon-driven Galaxy J7 (2016) will also offer support for Samsung Pay thanks to its NFC connectivity capabilities and an embedded fingerprint sensor.

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.
