A device bearing model number SM-J720F has been spotted on GFXBench in several listings. Only the US variants of the Galaxy J7 have model number SM-J727. Samsung has not used this model number for the Galaxy J7 variants released across the globe in 2016 and 2017, those handsets had model numbers SM-J710F and SM-J730F respectively.
Since the model number in these listings is SM-J720F it’s evident that this handset isn’t a US-only model. Samsung skipped a version so it can, at least in theory, use this model number for a next-generation Galaxy J handset. Perhaps it might call the revamped handset Galaxy J8 (2018) to bring the nomenclature in line with its premium mid-range offering.
Is Samsung revamping the Galaxy J series as well?
