Less than two months ago, a new Samsung mid-ranger was spotted on two benchmarking platforms: Geekbench and GFXBench. It was identified by the codename SM-J720F and according to speculations, it was the Samsung Galaxy J8 (2018). Fresh info is suggesting that this device is not the J8 but it may be launched as Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo, another of the many variants of the Galaxy J7.
The info comes from some files obtained by GSMArena which include the bootloader screen of the handset. According to the files, the first thing you can see when you power on the phone is “Galaxy J7 Duo”. The image seems to prove that the handset is not the Samsung Galaxy J8 (2018) and that it has a classic 16:9 aspect ratio. So, do not expect a borderless device.
The image has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, so the alleged Galaxy J7 Duo has an HD display. According to Geekbench and GFXBench, this device, previously known as the Samsung Galaxy J8 (2018) has an octa-core Exynos 7885 SoC paired with 3 GB of RAM. The handset runs Android 8.0 Oreo and its launch should be imminent. The leaked package shows that the firmware version of the phone is J720FDDU1ARCJ / J720FODM1ARCJ / J720FXXU1ARCB.
