In the last one year, there have been several leaks of the design and specifications of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J 2016 series smartphones. The designs of the handsets have been leaked via certification authorities, while specifications have been tipped through several benchmarking websites. Now, a new high-res image of the Galaxy J7 (2016) has been leaked, giving us a closer look of the device's front panel.
The image was leaked by popular tipster Evan Blass, and it shows the White colour variant of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016). As seen in the picture, the smartphone will feature a physical home button below the display, with a capacitive button on either side of this, in keeping with Samsung's typical design style.
At the top, you can see the Samsung logo along with a speaker grille placed just above it. While on the right side there are sensors and a front-facing camera, the left-side corner is where the front-facing LED flash will sit. Inside the display, two shortcuts for accessing the camera and the call log tab are also visible.
A previous Tenaa listing indicates that the 2016 versions will look like the 2015 Samsung Galaxy J7 and the Galaxy J5 smartphones, but with different screen sizes. While the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) is seen featuring a 5.5-inch full-HD display, the Galaxy J5 (2016) will have a 5.2-inch HD display.
According to the listing, the Galaxy J7 (2016) will come in two variants - SM-J7108 and SM-J7109. However, they both differ only when it comes to processors. The SM-J7108 is supposed to be powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz (said to be the Exynos 7870), while the SM-J7109 is seen featuring an unspecified octa-core processor (four cores clocked at 1.5GHz + four cores clocked at 1.2GHz).
The models include 4G LTE support, 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera (with LED flash), 3GB of RAM, and 16GB expandable storage. The battery capacity has not been mentioned but latest rumours point towards a 3300mAh battery, and the phone measures 151.7x75.9x7.6mm and weighs 166 grams, according to the leaks.
