Samsung has been rumored to be working on two new Galaxy J smartphones, dubbed Galaxy J8 and Galaxy J8 Plus. But in the meantime, the company also seems to have 2018 versions of its existing smartphones in the pipeline. One such device has been spotted online.
A device with model number SM-J20F has passed the FCC (Federal Communications Commision), and it is believed to be the Galaxy J7 (2018). The FCC listing, spotted by Slashleaks, reveals a few details about the upcoming Samsung device. These include dimensions of 153x76mm, and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity support.
Interestingly, the Galaxy J7 (2018) was recently spotted on Geekbench, albeit with a different model number (SM-J737P). As per the benchmark listing, the upcoming device will feature a 2.2GHz Exynos 7885 octa-core chipset paired with 2GB of RAM.
To put these leaks into perspective, let’s take a quick look at the Galaxy J7 (2017). Launched last year, the smartphone featured a 5.5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, Exynos 7870 octa-core SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. The device also came with 13-megapixel cameras on the back and front, a 3,600mAh battery, and IP54 certification for splash resistance.
