The Samsung Galaxy J7 comes alongside its little brother, the Samsung Galaxy J5, in their official unveiling in China earlier this week. Just like its smaller counterpart, the Samsung Galaxy J7 also comes with a front-facing LED flash which is marked as another first in the company’s history.
Basically, the Samsung Galaxy J7 packs a slightly powerful chipset than the Galaxy J5 – the 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC. This mid-ranger boasts a 5.5-inch display with the same HD panel as the smaller Galaxy J5. The phablet also includes bigger battery, 3000 mAh, to support the bigger screen real estate and the chipset.
Aside from the above mentioned features, the rest of the Samsung Galaxy J7 specs sheet are quite identical to the J5. This includes the 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB built-in memory with expansion option, 13MP primary camera and 5MP selfie camera.
There’s also an LTE connectivity on board, as well as Android 5.1 Lollipop which is the latest official iteration of the mobile OS as of this writing. The Samsung Galaxy J7’s availability has not been announced for other markets outside China. However, you can have it for USD 290 in the said market. The Samsung Galaxy J7 comes with black, white and gold color options.
