Recently, we reported that Samsung is planning to launch a new mid-range smartphone in the Galaxy J series, dubbed as the Galaxy J7+. An upgrade to the Galaxy J7 (2017), the J7+ is the second Samsung smartphone to feature dual cameras at the back, and first Samsung mid-range smartphone.
Samsung now officially announced the Galaxy J7+ in Thailand. The device is already up for pre-order in the country, while the first sale will take place on September 18. The smartphone is priced at THB 12,900 (approx. Rs. 25,000) and comes in a single variant.
Diving into the specifications of the Galaxy J7+, it is built out of metal and resembles other Samsung smartphones launched recently. There’s a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display up front with Samsung’s Always-On display feature. Below the display, there are three capacitive hardware keys, and the fingerprint scanner is integrated into the home button.
Internally, the smartphone is powered by the mid-range MediaTek Helio P20 chipset, paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The storage is expandable up to 256GB with a microSD card. It’s a bit surprising that Samsung has gone with a MediaTek chipset, instead of choosing a Snapdragon chipset. However, in recent times, Samsung has launched more MediaTek chipset smartphones than Snapdragon chipsets.
The Galaxy J7+ runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box, and come with some new features such as dual apps, where you can create two instances of a single app.
The smartphone is backed by a decent 3600mAh battery. Coming to the cameras, the J7+ two cameras of 13MP and 5MP at the back. Both the cameras work in tandem to produce bokeh effect in the images. Up front, Samsung has added a 16MP selfie camera with a f/1.9 aperture and LED flash support.
The J7+ will be available in three colour options- black, gold, and pink. Samsung is yet to announce the availability of J7+ in other markets including India.
