Last week, Samsung introduced the new Galaxy J7 which comes with an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor under the hood, but it seems we may get to see the Snapdragon powered variant of the handset in the near future as well.
Recently, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) with model number SM-J7109 was spotted on GeekBench with a Qualcomm Snapdragon variant on board.
The device spotted on GeekBench is apparently equipped with a Snapdragon 617 MSM8952 processor paired with 3GB of RAM on board. The processor is the successor to the Snapdragon 615, and comes with a clock speed of 1.5GHz.
The Galaxy J7 (2016) is expected to go on sale in China soon, but the appearance of the handset with a Snapdragon processor hints that the company may launch it in other global markets in the coming months as well.
The Exynos version announced last week comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage coupled with a microSD card slot, a 5MP front-facing camera, 13MP back camera for photos and videos and a 3,300 mAh battery to make sure you never run out of juice.
We’ll update you if we get to hear anything about the launch of the Galaxy J7 (2016) in other global markets.
