Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) gets certified by FCC

Yordan, 04 May 2017

The Galaxy J5 (2017) is a mid-tier smartphone by Samsung that has been leaking bit by bit. It already got Wi-Fi certified, benchmarked at Geekbench and GFXBench, and even alleged images of the phone surfaced. And now it also got certification from the FCC, suggesting a market release is nearing.

The listing reveals that the phone will come in three variants - the SM-J530GM, the SM-530YM/DS and the SM-J530GM/DS. Last year the Galaxy J5 (2016) was revealed by Samsung in April, but this time a launch in May looks more realistic since FCC certification is one of the last steps before releasing a device.

According to previous leaks, the phone will have an Exynos 7870 chipset with octa-core CPU, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB storage. Both front and back cameras will be 12 MP with Full HD video recording.
