Samsung has been making quite a buzz. Recently it launched is Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus with some amazing features and wow-ed everyone. This time it is coming back with the promised Galaxy J5 2017 release. After several leaks and rumors, the official specifications are finally here.
Leaks and Rumors
This phone was earlier spotted in Germany for pre-order. Different retailers cited different shipping rates at that time. But the earliest date was that of mid-June. Recently Roland Quandt, the man who is also known as the tipster, tweeted that his phone is now listed in Amazon France as well. There it was available with a 279 Euro price tag. The tweet hinted that the phone might be available since June 5th onwards.

However, the listed links are no longer active. So it is hard to say if this phone will come on 5th June or not. But it was recently spotted in a video too.
As per the video, we have found that this phone will come with Qualcomm Cortex A53. Also, the benchmarks show that it will feature Adreno 506 GPU. Also, an Octa-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz will power this phone.
The processor’s name is not there in the video or anywhere else. But taking a closer look at the benchmarks, we can say that it features Snapdragon 626. We can expect a processor to his capacity because it has been long since Galaxy J5 2017 has been announced. And Galaxy Pro 2017 and C7, also have Snapdragon 626.
Galaxy J5 2017 other specs
Coming back to the other specs, the video revealed that this phone would come with a 720p HD display which barely translates to 267 pixels per inch on the screen. Depending upon the price range – and we guess that it will not be cheaper than Rs. 10,000, this phone might come with a 2.5D curved glass, which is trending right now.
The phone will feature an 8MP and a 5MP camera. As expected, this is not a camera phone hence the camera features are kept lower. If the camera pixels are low, we might also get in Rs.7000 as a starting price. Nevertheless, it will have a 2GB RAM to support its 16GB internal memory.

Obviously, you will need an expandable microSD slot to increase the memory because Samsung is known for coming with heavy bloatware. Both the cameras will come with HD video recording feature. But if it comes, it is going to come with Android 7.0 Nougat because it has been months since Nougat hit the market. If it is under Rs. 6999 and features Nougat, then it will be one of the cheapest smartphones with Android Nougat update.
