Ahead of any formal announcements, an online retailer has leaked details about the Samsung Galaxy J7.

The retailer, based in Kazakhstan, put the phone up for pre-order at KZT$49,990, which is approximately NZD$377, and said shipments would start in August.

According to the retailer, the new smartphone runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop and is equipped with:

  •  a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) TFT LCD display
  • a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front camera
  • the octa-core Marvell PXA1936 processor clocked at 1.2GHz or 1.4GHz
  • 1.5GB RAM
  • 16GB inbuilt storage and up to 128GB or expandable storage via microSD card

As per previous leaks, the new Samsung Galaxy J7 is believed to be accompanied by a J5 version which will offer similar hardware but have a 5-inch 720p HD panel.

Earlier this year, Samsung launched the J1, which is still the only official device in the Galazy J series, and indicated plans to expand the series with two mid-range handsets: the J5 and J7.

Rumours surfaced that the Galaxy J5 Dual SIM and Galaxy J7 gained Bluetooth certification towards the end of April, and both devices were seen on the Chinese certification authority TENAA in May.

Earlier this month, Samsung accidentally leaked information about its Galaxy S6 Active phone, which features 5.1-inch Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels), Super Amoled display, and is powered by the octa-core Exynos 7420 SoC. This phone is also has a 32GB inbuilt storage and a 16MP rear camera.
