Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 to come as Galaxy Halo on Cricket Wireless

Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 has been under the rumor radar for quite some time now. It has already paid a visit to various certification sites and its release is expected anytime now. As per past reports, Samsung plans to release this 2017 iteration of Galaxy J7 via various carriers, one such being Cricket Wireless. However, on the carrier it will not be known as Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 but as Galaxy Halo.

Coming from renowned tipster Evan Blass, the report seems legit. Also, the images of the device uploaded by the tipster do not support the claim of past leaks suggesting dual rear camera set-up for J7 2017. Thus, it seems the GFXBench listing showing a 12MP camera combo for the front and rear of the device shall hold true.

Galaxy J7 2017 will be equipped with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, as per GFXBench listing. The phone will run Android 7.0 Nougat and will be powered by Exynos 7870 processor paired with Mali-T830 GPU chip. Underneath it will pack in 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
