Android Nougat update for Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016), A7 (2016) in India

The Bluetooth certification body may have approved the Galaxy Note 7R, but that doesn't necessarily mean the phone will be available for purchase soon. And, the latest leak from Slashleaks shows that Samsung will launch a new variant of the Galaxy J7 called the Galaxy J7 Max. While Galaxy S8 managed to get a score of 88, it failed to beat the top Photo score of 89 garnered by Pixel smartphone.

Samsung hopes to help limit the environmental impact of disposing of millions of Galaxy Note 7 devices it now has in storage by releasing a refurbished version.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7R will be a lot like the original version, with minor differences. It runs on the Android 7.0 Nougat platform so that's something.

Meanwhile, with the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung is now expected to persist with the 18.5:9 aspect ratio that was introduced when the Galaxy S8 emerged.

This goes without saying, but there's a huge gap between the Galaxy J3 and Samsung's current flagship in terms of specs.

The company will need permission from the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards as well as the National Radio Research Agency to be able to release the device in South Korea. We have reported about dual camera earlier also. The better location of the feature should be either at the center of the Galaxy Note 8's back or embedded underneath the display. Samsung has also seemingly opted for an octa-core MediaTek MT6757V Helio P20 chipset. However, Samsung might release a Snapdragon version of the phone sometime in the future. Though the Max in the title suggests a powerful battery, the leaked specifications show more the focus is on the camera front. Both the smartphones has 2 GB RAM as well as 16 GB of internal storage.
