It is not true. I worked for the Samsung Corporation and I called an ex colleg of mine. He told me that the new Samsung Galaxy J8 will be released late this year,or in the first season of 2019. And the specs will be : 5.7 inch screen, full HD resolution 1080x1920, 13 mp or 16 mp cameras , 32 and 64 gb storage, dual sim, 4 gb ram. And the price will be around 350-400 euros. That's it. Hope I was helpfull. My respects everybody and I wish you all the best and plenty of health !
These specifications are not true its model number is J720F which mean that it will be from J7 series not form J8 because if it is J8 then its model number should be J810F.
CherryPie., 20 Jan 2018Using 1024x768 samsung a 2015 tablet, its all good, whats problem?It's not that, of course whatever screen used is maybe enough to just do the task, if not good. But this is 2018, most midrangers employ 1080p screen. If this J8 is intended to be a midranger, the screen resolution can be a disadvantage, even though J8's innards sound promising. Even Sony XA2 ups its resolution this year from 720p in XA1 to 1080p in XA2.
Is it single or dual sim & does it have Micro Sim Slot and when it will be released in India
Crocop, 20 Jan 2018Samsung again confusing people with new name's and series of phones. I don't mind 720p screen ... moreYea but upcoming big games like gta 4 on android later this year will lag for sure. ADRENO 506 will become the minimum and mali 71 is just not there unless 4 cores
Samsung again confusing people with new name's and series of phones. I don't mind 720p screen since I'm still using J7 2016 with it, but come on it's 2018 and even the cheapest phones have 1080p screen. On a good side, most of the games and apps probably won't lag since it is the same CPU found in A8 series and it pushes bigger resolution there. I don't know which phone will be replaced by this one, but I guess that we will see... If only they would increase their update speed, though.
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2018No, I hope not, it's not needed. 16:9 is good enough and still acceptable. However, the HD res... moreWell, you could make bezelless 16:9, like the Mate 10, if that what he's saying. But hey, I don't mind bezel tho, 70% screen ratio is fine by me
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2018Seems like pure A53, sheet :/That Exynos 7885 is new. It is using Cortex A73 and A53. Was used in Galaxy A8 and A8+.
Good device j8 7885 processer 4GB ram 720 HD display
Wow no lag gaming better than j7 pro
Sometimes lag j7 pro gaming price is high
Performance like S9
SohailSays2, 19 Jan 201818:9 please.No, I hope not, it's not needed. 16:9 is good enough and still acceptable. However, the HD resolution is kinda a bummer.
Probably there will be 2 variants like the new A8. So the J8 HD is the successor of J5 and J8+ for J7. Kinda surprised both the A and J have similiar processor, This maybe the succesor of A3 17 too.

This is successor of j5/j7 2017. Very good upgrade, better soc , cpu, gpu, more ram and more storage.
5.5 inch HD? Are we still in 2015? Man.. If this pans out to be true, this will be a disaster for Samsung.
