Yesterday I bought a Samsung J7 but I don't know if it is fake or real one?

I bought it yesterday, and I only got 3 languages I know 2 of the 3. 1 of them is Chinese, and the other one is English. When I did a hard reset, the language was in Chinese. On the back cover that plastic thing it said on it: China Mobile 4GLTE.

It sounds like you have a cloned device. The Samsung Language packs that are pre-installed have a variety of different languages and dialect. Since you just purchased the device yesterday, you should be able to return it and get your money back. The next time you purchase a device, use an online or storefront of cell phone devices that are well known.

Since you purchased it on eBay, look up the retailer's reviews. You probably have purchased a used or refurbished tablet and this is why it is not in the original packaging.
