MWC is just around the corner, and Samsung has the attention of the tech world mainly focused on the Galaxy S7 and S7 EDGE. For those who don’t seek such a high-end experience, the J series from Samsung provides a reasonably mid-range fare. In 2015, Galaxy J7 and Galaxy J5 were launched in June 2015, but it seems like Samsung might just drop the respective successors earlier in 2016. As both these handsets are seen popping up on the website of Bluetooth SIG, it is a clear indication that that official revelation is not too far away.

So, what exactly do we know about the 2016 versions of Samsung J5 and J7? While J5 recently popped up on the GFXBench, looking all set to reveal an increased 5.2”, 720 x 1280 screens, which is a bit larger than the 5” panel of present J5. The benchmark suggests 2 gigs RAM (the current model has 1.5GB) and Snapdragon 410 under the hood, and 13 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front-facing camera combination.
The Galaxy J7 of 2016 is likely to have a 5.5” 1080 x 1920 display that’s a generous enhancement from the last year’s 720p resolution. It could have up to 3GB RAM space too, and a much touted 4300 mAH batter capacity. It seems that the J7 2016 version is really shaping up to be a remarkable improvement. Processor-wise, if recent reports are to be believed, Samsung’s all new Exynos 7870 can grade the strong mid-level smartphones.
The current speculation has been aired by Bluetooth SIG listings, which seems to be legitimate. Although the J1 (already announced) is packed with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, it is expected that J5 and J7 of 2016 can run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, especially if Samsung is trying to push these devices to the market in the mid-year, say June.
