Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy J5 (2017) in the near future. Company hasn’t made an official announcement yet but the device has already been spotted at the FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance which suggests that a release is not that far off.
Galaxy J5 believed to be bearing model number SM-J530 and running Android 6.0 Marshmallow as per old Wi-Fi certification from a couple of months back is true. The latest benchmark results of the Galaxy J5 (2017) show that the device will indeed be running Android 7.0 Nougat when it arrives. Specs-wise, according to its benchmark listings, the phone is powered by Exynos 7870 SoC and has 2GB/16GB memory configuration. It features a 12MP rear as well as front camera.
Samsung hasn’t confirmed as yet when it’s planning to launch the Galaxy J5 (2017). Given that this week is going to be all about the Galaxy S8 as it’s due for release on April 21, it’ll be a few weeks before Samsung makes this handset official.
