Samsung Galaxy J5, J7 2016 edition launched

Smartphone manufacturing corporation, Samsung, has finally unveiled the much-rumoured-about Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) and Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) smartphones in China.

Both come as a successor to the Samsung Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7, which were launched in July 2015.

The two devices have been listed on Samsung China website but pricing details weren’t added to the listing. Samsung also failed to mention when both devices will get to other regions.

The listing however has revealed the specs of the devices, putting an end to the rampant rumours making the rounds on the internet in recent days and weeks.

The Android-based dual-SIM supporting Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) comes in a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolutions with Super Amoled display and a pixel density of 402ppi.

The smartphone is powered by an unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz. This is further clubbed with 3GB RAM to provide a great experience for users.

There’s also 16GB of inbuilt storage on the phone, out of which 10.4GB is available for users to store files. However, this shouldn’t be a problem as the memory can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card.

In addition, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) has a 13 megapixel autofocus rear camera along with a front-facing 5-megapixel camera. Both the cameras come with f/1.9 aperture and a dual-tone flash.

The phone measures 151.7x76x7.8mm, weighs 170 grams and is backed by a 3300mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 354 hours of standby time.

Connectivity options on the phone include 4G LTE support, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS, and Micro-USB 2.0.

It will be available in Gold, White, and Pink colour variants.

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) on the other hand also has dual-SIM support but comes in a slightly smaller 5.2-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) resolution Super AMOLED display.

Under the hood, there’s an unspecified quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz doing all the heavy lifting.

This is further clubbed with 2GB of RAM to offer above average experience for its users. The device is backed by a 3100mAh battery said to deliver up to 369 hours of standby time.

On the connectivity and camera front, the Galaxy J5 (2016) shares the same innards as the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016). The smartphone measures 145.8×72.3×8.1mm and weighs 159 grams.
