Not long after showing up on Geekbench, the Galaxy phone with model number SM-J727 arrives at FCC. This handset is most likely the long-awaited Galaxy J7 (2017), a smartphone that still has to be announced by Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) will probably surface in the US pretty soon, since a device that carries the model number SM-J727 surfaced online once again, this time at FCC. Last time, the alleged Galaxy J7 (2017) was spotted at Geekbench, but this smartphone has been in the rumor mill for a few months already.
There are still a few specs that rumors did not reveal yet, but this is what we already know about the upcoming Galaxy J7 (2017) - an unspecified octa-core Qualcomm processor running at 2.2 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 5 MP/13 MP cameras, a 3,000 mAh removable battery, all with Android 7.0 Nougat on top. The operating system is expected to arrive with the latest version of Samsung Experience, formerly known as TouchWiz.
Obviously, all the specs above should be taken with a grain of salt for now. Since the SM-J727 already grabbed its Bluetooth and WiFi certifications, checking in at FCC means the handset should be ready to hit the market now. These being said, it only remains to see if Samsung decides to unleash it in the coming weeks or to just wait for MWC 2017 and announce it then.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
