We have already seen many rumors and leaks regarding the Galaxy J3, J5 and J7 (2017). These models had received the FCC certifications too, tipping that their launch is imminent. Now, it looks like Samsung has officially confirmed the existence of the 2017 Galaxy J3, Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7. But the confirmation lies in a surprising place that none of us would have expected.
We say this as the Korean information page of Samsung's Kids Mode app was lately updated to list the compatible devices. The list includes the Galaxy J3 (2017), Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017). Along with these upcoming models, the list of compatible devices also includes the already released smartphones. Interestingly, this list also includes the Galaxy Note 7 despite the fact that the device has been recalled following the numerous explosion incidents.
