Techies are already antsy with anticipation as the Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 already has the latest Android OS. Thanks to modern technology, electronics have no other way to go but up. It means that technology will keep on progressing as the years go by. Consumers will also have to constantly update themselves to make sure they are not left behind.

This is exactly what Korean smartphone company Samsung has done with their smartphones. For the longest time, phones came with a specific OS, and consumers had to keep getting newer models to keep up. However, the Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 now officially has the latest Android Nougat.

The Time to Upgrade

According to Tech Times, the smartphone was spotted on the benchmarking site Geekbench. This isn’t the only thing that caught the attention of many. The fact that it was running on Android 7.0 drew a lot of attention.

Someone reportedly got their hands on a prototype of the Galaxy J7 and offered techies a peek into the device. So far, the phone has good results, with an 889 score for single-core and a 4200 for multi-core performances. However, this is just a tease into the slew of features the phone reportedly has. GSM Arena gives a closer look into the upgraded phone’s features.

Other Features

The phone has a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and will be powered by an Exynos or Qualcomm processor. There will reportedly be a 3GB RAM and 16GB of storage. It also comes with a 13MP main camera, a 5MP selfie cam, and a 3000 mAh battery.

The newest change on the phone is not just the OS. There is reportedly a metallic strip on the back of the phone that has not only the camera and flash but also the loudspeaker as well. This may seem like an odd place to have a speaker, but then again, Samsung has not yet confirmed the features.

Lastly, many are now curious on the release date of the Samsung Galaxy J7 2017, and speculations are pointing an early 2017 release date. After all, the color variants black, gold, and white are currently rumors. Plus, the price of $250 to $300 is based on the older model’s price point.
