Samsung J7 prototype benchmarks leaked
Leaked specs of an alleged prototype model Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) have appeared on Geekbench benchmarks results database after someone ran the app on one of the smartphones. The Galaxy J devices for 2017 have not yet been announced, so most of what we know about the features on these phones is based on similar leaks that made the rounds over the past few months.
The benchmarked Galaxy J7 (2017) is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 SoC with an octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU overclocked to 2.21 GHz and a built-in Adreno 506 GPU. It also runs Android 7.0 Nougat, unlike last year’s Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) which ran Marshmallow. Speculators on numerous websites say the J7 is expected to have 3GB RAM, but the benchmarked J7 only had 2GB RAM.
Sources also reported in previous leaks that the Galaxy J7 (2017) would have a 5.5” 1920x1080 AMOLED display, 16 GB internal storage, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel camera on the front, and a 3000 mAh battery. If these specs are accurate, this battery would represent a 10 percent downgrade from the the one currently in the Galaxy J7 (2016).
According to Indian imports website Zauba, the devices will be sold for around INR 15,000 ($220 USD).
