It would seem so. There is an online retailer from Kazakhstan, accepting orders for what he is calling Samsung Galaxy J7. It may be recalled that Samsung had listed Samsung Galaxy S6 Active on its website for a short period, at the beginning of June. Samsung has also not launched Galaxy J7, or revealed any plans to do so. So should the retailer be trusted? The retailer did mention that the device would reach the markets in August this year.

If indeed Galaxy J7 will be the new smartphone from Samsung, then according the listing of Kazakhstan retailer, its specifications include an HD TFT LCD screen of 5.5 inches, with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. The device would run Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop). The listing also mentions that the rear camera in this gadget would be of 13 megapixels whereas the front camera would be of 5 megapixels. The processor in the device is specified as octa-core, more specifically Marvell PXA1936.

The RAM is mentioned as 1.5GB, and the storage is mentioned as 16GB. This storage is expandable to 128GB through microSD card. This retailer is collecting 49,990 KZT equivalents to INR 17,250/- upfront as booking advance.
