a new variant of Galaxy J7 (2016) with android marshmallow 6.0.1 appears on gfxbench with only HD 720p display and new mali T830 GPU and only 2 GB RAM. Gsmarena report this breaking news.
this phone is perfect for me just waiting for it to be released here in the philippines
Changes from 2015 to 2016 model
Screen: 5.5" 720p to 5.5" 1080p
RAM: 1.5 GB to 3GB
Battery: 3000mAH to 3300mAH
As always, it comes to the price. If they can price it at the J7(2015) pricepoint (i.e. 15k in India), then it would be fantastic. However I doubt it, and expect it to be priced a little higher. Something like 17k would be a good price.
Casedy, 24 Jan 2016I hope the battery will be upgrade to 4000mA or larger! Removeable type.At least removable battery like j7 - 2015
Adreno 405 / mali 720 gpu is not enough for full hd gaming phones.
I don't want a metal body & fingerprint sensor on j7 2016. Because it will leads to sealing the battery inside the phone.
Only ppi and screen resolution upgrade 5 grade. Nothing new expect prices to be 250$ mX. Why is SAmmy just improving hardware, a bit and label 2016 model same. +
Casedy, 24 Jan 2016I hope the battery will be upgrade to 4000mA or larger! Removeable type.maybe 3200 tops

Anonymous, 23 Jan 2016can someone anwer my questions... some peolpe said this phone has a low chip gpu, but im using... moreAdreno 320 found in Samsung s4 is a monster compared to Mali t720 of this phone.It's a HUGE difference between them.The adreno 405 is a lot better than mali T720 MP2 but is still far away from adreno 320
Samsung has the ability to give good phones but they give the least possible specs in their phones. Now as all Chinese manufacturers have shifted to HD displays with higher ppi, higher RAM/ROM and more metallic / better plastics honorable Samsung thought to copy lately...
Debdip Nimdih, 22 Jan 2016I am little disappointed with this specification. if samsung really wants to upgrade J7.. then... moreIf you want such specifications there are other models available in Samsung. These companies are to sell and earn profits. They are doing business. If they will give you all such specifications in these handset..who is gonna buy their high end flagship phones? Every company has already advance technologies with them but they will never bring it out all together.
