The successor of the Galaxy J7 phablet is rumored to be released in late spring and some of its specifications have been revealed via a kernel source and most of them are identical to the ones that have been spotted on GFXBench.
So, according to the purported kernel source, the 2016 version of the Galaxy J7 will have a Full HD display (1080×1920 pixels), it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor, on its rear side will have a 13MP camera with a Samsung S5K3L2XX sensor, while the front camera will have a resolution of 5MP and will feature a Samsung S5K5E3YX sensor with an aperture of f/2.2 (23mm) and 1.1um pixels. The device is expected to come with a fingerprint scanner like the Galaxy flagships, but it will offer a microSD card slot and its battery will have a capacity of 4300mAh.
Earlier alleged GFXBench results claim that the J7 2016 will run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box and will have a 5.5-inch screen. The processor will be backed by an Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM, but the benchmark showed that the CPU is actually an inferior Snapdragon 615. Also, the internal memory will have a capacity of 16GB and the main camera will have a resolution of 12MP or 13MP and features such as autofocus, HDR, face detection and touch focus.
The original Galaxy J7 model has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen which supports a lower resolution of 720×1280 pixels. Samsung released in two variants of processors: Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 octa core clocked at 1.4GHz, or Exynos 7580 octa core clocked at 1.5GHz. It houses an internal storage of 16GB, but with a microSD card slot, the memory can be expanded up to 128GB. The phablet sports a 13MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.9 and the front camera is 5MP and has f/2.2 lens. And if the user happens to take a selfie at night, he/she can use the front-facing single-LED flash.
