Samsung announced its Galaxy J7 smartphone back in June and released it in China on the same month. It was made available in India in July.
The Samsung Galaxy J7, which has been in the market since June, has offered users mid-range specs for a relatively low price, considering the handset comes from a popular brand known for manufacturing premiere smartphones.
The Galaxy J7, which began shipping out in July 24, is a 5.5-inch handset with a 720 x 1280 resolution Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen over a 1.5GHz Exynos 7580 chipset and an Adreno 405 GPU, both of which are supported by 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage, expandable up to 128GB via a microSD slot.
The Galaxy J7 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, and features a 13MP primary camera with a LED flash and autofocus that supports face detection, touch focus, geo-tagging, and panorama shots, as well as a 5MP secondary front camera, also with a LED flash.
Supported with Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi direct, and hotspot capabilities, it also has Bluetooth, GPS, 4G LTE, 3G, and NFC, and is juiced by a 3,000mAh battery.
Measuring 152.4mm x 78.6mm x 7.50mm, the Galaxy J7 weighs 171g, and comes in white, black and gold variants.
The phone boasts of an Ultra Power Saving Mode which helps to cut down on its battery's power consumption by automatically shutting down the handset's unnecessary functions when not in use. It also features a Smart Manager that helps users check their memory and battery status, delete unused files, and run their phone through antivirus checks.
It has also been noted that the Samsung Galaxy J7 units launched in China differs slightly from the units released in India a month later. The Chinese units feature TFT displays, while the Indian units carry Super AMOLED touchscreens.
In China the J7 smartphones run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipsets, compared to the Exynos 7580 processors in the J7 Indian units.
The phone retails at Rs. 14,999 ($227) in India.
