Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 will have the same UI as the Galaxy S6, official manuals confirm


Last updated: June 3rd, 2015 at 12:30 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 are yet to be officially unveiled by Samsung, but the company Chinese arm has pretty much done the needful by uploading the user manuals for both devices. The manuals are in Chinese and are hence impossible to decipher without the use of translation, but the included images do show something very notable – the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 will feature the same TouchWiz UX as the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, possibly becoming the first Samsung phones to do so.

The Galaxy J1 is one of the slowest smartphones in Samsung’s lineup, but the newer software on the J5 and J7 mean they won’t suffer from the same poor user experience (well, provided Samsung has optimized the new TouchWiz enough for mid-range devices.) The devices will also come with some of the features introduced on the S6, including the Smart Manager app that lets users manage the RAM and storage, and things like a wide selfie mode in the camera and support for FM radio, something that the company has been omitting from flagship devices in the last year or so.

The Galaxy J5 will feature a 5-inch HD LCD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, an 8/13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a microSD slot, and a 2,600 mAh battery. The Galaxy J7 will share some of the specs, while changing things up with an octa-core Marvel processor, a 5.5-inch HD display, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Both phones will run on Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, and will support 4G LTE connectivity.
