Though initial reports claimed that both the Galaxy J3 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) are set to make their debut in the U.S., it seems that a Galaxy J5 (2017) will be added to the mix. Furthermore, the Galaxy C7 Pro that is currently available in China will also soon come to the U.S. as well.
The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017)
Last month, the Galaxy J5 (2017) was spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance with the model number SM-J530FM/DS and was reported to be running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This time, a new Samsung model was spotted at Geekbench but had a slightly different model number, SM-J530FM.
Comparing it to the previous model that was seen last month, it's noticeable that only the "/DS" was taken out. Despite that slight difference, it's believed that it could be the same device but equipped with higher specs, specifically, Android 7.0 Nougat, an Exynos 7870 chip and 2 GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro
The Galaxy C7 Pro is a mid-range smartphone that costs around $420 and is already available for purchase in China. According to reports, it has been recently spotted at the country's Federal Communications Commission (FFC) where it has been granted approval so that Samsung can make it available in the U.S. As for when will the said device will hit the U.S. shores, that information is still kept under wraps.
The Galaxy C7 Pro was first announced last January and released in the following month. It features a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. It runs on Android 6.0.1 out of the box and is packed with a Snapdragon 625 chipset.
It has an internal memory storage of 64 GB with 4 GB of RAM and an expandable memory option of up to 256 GB. It features a 16 MP camera, both on the front and back, and is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery with fast charging support.
