2017 Samsung Galaxy J5 Receives Wi-Fi Certification, Possible Launch in MWC
The 2017 Samsung Galaxy J5 has received Wi-Fi certification ahead of its official announcement. The smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and carries the model number SM-J530FM. Last year, Samsung announced the Galaxy J7 in April and Galaxy J5 in June, and the 2017 rumored version should arrive in a similar timeframe.
The New Samsung Galaxy J5 Receives Wi-Fi Certification
The 2017 Samsung Galaxy J5 is obviously the successor of the 2016 Samsung Galaxy J5. The updated version of Galaxy J5 is carrying the code number SM-J530FM/DS and has been given the green signal by the Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA). However, the WFA listing revealed no details regarding the impending specs and features of the new smartphone, as reported by TechTimes.
The only released information that can be accumulated from the certification is that the Samsung Galaxy J5 will come pre-loaded with Google's Android 6.0 Marshmallow, not Android 7.0 Nougat. The older version, which was released last year, came with a 5.2-inch super AMOLED display screen and users would be hoping that the successor follows the series. The previous model also houses a massive 3,100mAh battery, a quad-core processor and a 2 GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the 2017 Samsung Galaxy J7 can be expected to progress on the RAM capacity as well as the processor.
