This 5.5-inch handset is expected to launch as Galaxy Halo on Cricket Wireless, most likely by the end of July. The price should be around $380 USD, and the list of color options allegedly consists of black, pink, gold, and blue.

Evan Blass has just revealed that Cricket Wireless plans to launch the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) in the US using a different name and a slightly different external design. Leaving the Cricket branding aside, it seems that the Galaxy Halo would also feature a different camera configuration.

Although this still has to be confirmed, we expect that the internals of the Galaxy Halo are similar with those of the Galaxy J7 (2017). If this turns out to be true, Cricket customers will get a 5.5-inch device with a 1.6 GHz Exynos 7870 Octa processor, full HD resolution, 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage and microSD support, 13 MP front and rear cameras, as well as a 3,600 mAh embedded battery.

The list of unconfirmed information continues with a price tag of around $380 USD and four colors - blue, black, gold, pink. The launch date has not been mentioned by VentureBeat's popular editor, either, but SamMobile expects this handset to hit the market "some time before the end of July."

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.
