Photos and possible specs have leaked about a new mid-range smartphone coming to Tracfone.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 (called the Sky Pro) is the big brother to the Samsung Galaxy J3 Sky which has been available from Tracfone for several months now.

The Galaxy J7 Sky Pro is expected to have a large, 5.5" touchscreen, quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory.

We've been expecting Tracfone to offer more smartphones with improved specs in 2017, and the Galaxy J7 Sky Pro might be one of the first mid-range devices to come to Tracfone with 2 GB RAM.

The LG X Style was released not long ago, and featured a quad core processor with 1.5 GB RAM.

Many Tracfone users have been looking for a phone from Tracfone that can offer performance at an affordable price, will the Galaxy J7 meet that need? Let's look at the possible specs to learn more.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Sky Pro (S727VL) Rumored Specs

These specs have not been officially verified, and may change
  • 4G LTE using CDMA (Verizon) service
  • Android 6.0.1 (possibly Android 7.0)
  • 5.5" HD Touchscreen
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB Internal Memory
  • 1.4 Ghz Quad-core processor
  • 8 MP Rear Camera/ 5 MP Front Camera
The Galaxy J7 brings improvements in several areas over its predecessors, the Galaxy Sky and Galaxy Luna, most notably increased RAM and screen size.

The Galaxy Luna has a 4.5" screen, while the Galaxy Sky comes with a 5" screen. Both of these devices have been popular choices for their good performance, and reasonable price, which leads us to expect good things from the Galaxy J7 Sky Pro.

It seems likely that the Galaxy J7 will run Android 6.0.1 but there is a chance it will ship with the newer Android 7.0 Nougat. We will have to wait and see.

Despite the newer specs on the Galaxy J7 Sky Pro, we don't expect it to change our List of the Top 5 Tracfone Cell Phones.

Verizon will also be getting their own version of the Samsung Galaxy J7, which may have different specs than the Tracfone version. And it may be possible to bring it to the Tracfone BYOP program at a cheaper cost.

No official announcement has been made about the J7 coming to Tracfone, so we don't know the price or release date. But we expect the Samsung Galaxy J7 Sky Pro to be available sometime during Spring 2017, and retail for around $179-$199 with airtime bundle.

The reviews are great and are a significant help when selecting a phone upgrade. Presently have an LG Ultimate II and have had nothing but great success with LG phones. The "brightness" of the screen is one of the main issues with all the smart phones that I see in use. Please add any kind of statement regarding screen brightness that you can to future reviews. I could easily be my deciding factor. THANKS!

Just switched from Ultimate II to Galaxy Sky. Screen is brighter and has more contrast, and there is a feature to boost an additional amount for 15 minutes called Outdoor Mode. I haven't yet tried to read the screen in bright sunshine outdoors but it looks promising.

Will the Galaxy Sky be able use Wi-Fi® Capable calling on Tracfone? Other sites/plans can implement it. But no data with Tracfone yet.

Because of the reviews here, I just purchased a Samsung Galaxy Sky on QVC. It was just over $100 and came with one year of service with Tracfone. I think that is a great deal. I am very happy with the phone. I upgraded from a Samsung S2.
