Samsung's Galaxy J7 (2016) may not be even a year old, but that isn't stopping the company from gearing up for the phablet's successor, which is unofficially being called the Galaxy J7 (2017).

The South Korean company has not made an official announcement about the device, its release date or specs, but the smartphone has reportedly been spotted on an import-export website. The listing does not divulge any noteworthy details but, if authentic, it confirms that Samsung is working on a new model of the smartphone.

The most recently released model, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016), has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED full HD display and is equipped with a replaceable 3,300 mAh battery.

Additionally, the smartphone has 16 gigabytes of internal storage, 2 gigabytes of RAM and an octa-core processor (1.6 GHz).

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) rumors

In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) is rumored to have a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) display, a 3,000 mAh battery, the same 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing unit, and will be powered by an Exynos chipset and 3GB of RAM. Since the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, 4G LTE, dual SIM and NFC, it is safe to say the 2017 edition will do the same.

While there is no official release date for the device, industry speculation suggests the budget-friendly smartphone will debut in 2017, possibly by the second quarter.
