Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) surfaces on Geekbench

One month after receiving its WiFi certification, the Android Nougat-loaded Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) now surfaces on Geekbench. The model spotted on this website also runs Nougat, so it will probably hit the market in the coming weeks.

Samsung Galaxy J7 is a low-end handset that soon will get updated and, fortunately for buyers on a tight budget looking for a Nougat-driven smartphone, it promises to arrive loaded with Android 7.0. Back in late 2016, the Galaxy J7 (2017) received its WiFi certification. Now, the time has come to see it stopping at Geekbench. In both cases, Android Nougat was on board.

According to Tech Times, a prototype with model number SM-J727P landed on Geekbench. Its scores are nothing to be amazed of - 889 single-core and 4,200 multi-core. As usual, the test results also come with some technical details - 2.21 GHz octa-core processor by Qualcomm and 2 GB RAM. Previous rumors also mentioned a 5.5-inch full HD display, a 13 MP primary camera and a 5 MP one for selfies, a 3,000 mAh battery, as well as 16 GB internal storage and microSD support.

Since previous rumors also mentioned 3 GB RAM, it would not be unusual to see the Chinese version of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) coming with more memory than the international one, since this is also happening with the Galaxy J7 currently on the market. Verizon Wireless is expected to bring this upcoming handset to the US market, but there is no launch date information to mention at this stage.

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.
