AT&T Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 Passes FCC Labs Hinting Imminent Arrival

Samsung Galaxy J7 2017

Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 tagged with AT&T has cleared the FCC certification. With the clearance of FCC, you can expect an imminent arrival of the Galaxy J7 2017. In this edition, we expect changes to the processor, RAM, and storage. Read the story for more details.

Tagged with Made in Korea, you can expect the launch of two variants of the Galaxy J7 2017. While the model number SM-J727A bears the FCC ID A3LSMJ727A, the SM-J727AZ model surfaced with the FCC ID A3LSMJ727A. As you can see, the FCC ID is same for both models.

Moreover, the FCC label has rated the phone as 3.85V with 1550mAh. Hence, you can expect Galaxy J7 2017 to bear a 1550mAh battery. However, this should not be the case since companies are releasing phones with over 2500mAh battery.

On the specifications front, you can expect changes in the processor, RAM and internal storage. Since two FCC labels surfaced, we expect Samsung to unveil both 2GB RAM/16GB storage and 3GB RAM/32GB storage variants of the phone. As usual, you can extend the storage via micro SD card. Regarding the display, you can expect the same 5.5-inch HD display. However, we infer the addition of Full HD display in the SM-J727AZ model.

In addition to 4G LTE connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 will provide support for all major sensors including a fingerprint on the rear side. It is also possible to expect a fingerprint scanner on the physical home button.

The possible surprise highlight of the Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 will be the integration of Android Nougat. There is no point in having a new Samsung handset with the older Android Marshmallow. If Samsung infuses Nougat, then the Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 will sell like hot cakes since users will be able to experience all the latest features of the operating platform.

However, the Galaxy J5 Prime 2017 and Galaxy On5 2017 ships with Android Marshmallow. Hence, you need not have to expect much., If Samsung really would like to tap the emerging market, then it should consider Android Nougat.
