While everyone has eyes on what Samsung does with Galaxy S9 when it launches next month, it looks like Samsung is prepping to launch some mid-range phones as well. The next phone in Samsung’s budget J series, the J8 was recently spotted on benchmarking sites.
As the listing suggests on Geekbentch, the phone will have model number SM-j720F and it may be Samsung’s first phone to launch with Android Oreo pre-installed. The phone will also have Samsung developed Exynos 7885 SoC which will have 8 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz.
The phone will have an HD display on the front which will be 5.5″ in diagonal screen size. Unlike recent Galaxy A8 and Galaxy S8, it is highly unlikely that the new phone will have an 18:9 screen aspect ratio. As it looks like Samsung is keeping that feature for more expensive phones.
In terms of optics, the phone will come with a 12-megapixel shooter on the back with an an8-megapixel sensor on the front, The phone will have FHD video recording support and there will be autofocus and LED flash on the back of the phone too.
Listings also suggested that the phone will have 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded using a MicroSD card. The phone has an accelerometer, GPS, Proximity, and compass, but the phone will lack a gyroscope. Considering Motorola and Xiaomi both are strong on the mid-range market in the country, it will be interesting how Samsung’s J8 sells.
