The smartphone is expected to run on Android Nougat operating system.
After being spotted on various benchmarking websites and receiving Bluetooth and FCC certifications, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) smartphone has now received WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA). Six Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) variants with different models have received the certification, as per a report of Mobilexpose.
The new six variants include model numbers SM-J730F, SM-J730F/DS, SM-J730G, SM-J730G/DS, SM-J730GM, and SM-J730GM/DS. The DS in the model numbers hints at Dual Sim models. It is also to be noted that the device bearing the model number SM-J730FM/DS also got the Wifi certification in March this year. The Galaxy J7 (2017) with model numbers SM-J730FM and SM-J730FM/DS has already shown up at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) before.
As per the Wi-Fi certification, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) will support dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n (2.4GHz, 5GHz) and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity features. Sadly, the listing does not show any specifications except that the device will be powered by Android 7.0 operating system. The listing reveals the certification ID WFA71891 and the date of certification being 16th May 2017.
As per earlier multiple reports, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) will feature 5.5 inch full HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution. It will be powered by Snapdragon 425 Soc/Samsung Exynos 7870 chipset coupled with 2GB/3GB RAM. The device will be boosted by an 8/12-megapixel rear camera and 5/12-megapixel front camera. It is also expected to come with 3000 mAh battery and will run on Android Nougat operating system.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) is expected to be announced globally soon, but Samsung is likely to limit the announcement to select countries and carriers, bearing different names. As per earlier reports, the Galaxy J7 (2017) smartphone is going to be released by US-based carrier Verizon as the Galaxy J7 V, Sprint as the Galaxy J7 Perx and by Tracfone as the J7 Sky Pro. Other than these two, AT&T and U.S. Cellular carriers are also expected to release the smartphone. The US variant will be running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core chipset while the international version will be powered by Samsung’s in-house developed octa-core Exynos 7870 chipset.
