  1. The specs do not match what Samsung says. They’re saying it has an 8 MP front and 5 rear for the SM-727 series. Even the one that’s out, the SM-727V at Verizon has these specs.
    Processor is an Octa 2.2 MSM8953

    Still waiting for the TMO variant

    • Hi, we would really appreciate if you can mention the source. It is 13MP front and 13MP rear according to our sources.
      The processor, on the other hand, varies from region to region and usually, the US variant features a Snapdragon Processor which has been mentioned in our article.
