Samsung is tight-lipped on its upcoming handsets from the Galaxy J-series, but it appears like Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) are not far from hitting the stores. It was earlier reported that the 2017 version of Galaxy J7 would be launched in the US on April 10, but it didn't happen, leaving the fans confused.

Galaxy J7 (2017) could be released along with Galaxy J5 (2017) like their predecessors. Interestingly, Galaxy J5 (2017) has been spotted on Sprint as Galaxy J7 Perx, several weeks after it was seen on Wi-Fi Alliance with model number SM-J530FM/DS.
