Samsung accidentally announces the Galaxy J5 (2017) and J7 (2017) smartphones on Korean website


Samsung has accidentally announced the fact that Galaxy J5 (2017) and J7 (2017) smartphones are coming this year. The “announcement” appeared on a Samsung website dedicated to Samsung’s Kid mode app. The yet-to-be-launched devices were mentioned as devices that supported the app.

The listing was first reported by SamMobile, which points out that the 2017 variants of the J5 and J7 have been expected for a while now.

The Samsung Galaxy J series of smartphones make up the company’s affordable smartphone line-up. A leaked video of the J7 has also appeared.

The video shows off a phone with a unique arrangement for the antennas, a curvy, almost ovoid shape, a single rear camera and flash on the rear and a physical home button on the front. The device also appears to support USB-C. The rear camera is supposed to be a 13 MP unit with an f/1.9 aperture.

The display is said to be a 5.5-inch, Full HD panel (1920×1080).

The video, which is in Korean, explains that the phone is powered by a 1.6 GHz, Exynos 7870 processor that’s supported by a Mali-T830 graphics processor and 3 GB of RAM. A 3,600 mAh battery provides the juice.

Internal storage is said to be limited to 16 GB, though this is expandable by up to 256 GB via a microSD card.

As with the Samsung Galaxy A5, the speaker has, for whatever reason, moved to the right side and is placed above the power button.
