[Update: Pricing] Galaxy J5 could be making its way to Europe
Samsung launched the Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7 in China last month, so far it has only released these devices in India and the Galaxy J5 has also been released in South Korea. It looks like the Galaxy J5 might be gearing up to make its way to Europe in the near future though it’s unclear at this point in time if the handset will be accompanied by its sibling the Galaxy J7.
The Galaxy J5 has already been listed on Samsung’s German website and support manuals for this handset are now available in Dutch (PDF), German (PDF) and English (PDF), besides that German carrier Orange already has the Galaxy J5 on offer for €234.99. This could be an indication that a Europe launch is on the cards for this smartphone even though Samsung’s regional arms are quiet about it at this point in time. The Galaxy J5 features a 5-inch HD display, 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor with 1.5GB RAM, 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel wide-angle front camera with single-LED flash. There’s 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot, dual-SIM support, LTE and a 2,600mAh battery.
Update: We have learned that the price of the Galaxy J5 in Europe could start at €249,99, and that the phone will be available in black, white and gold color options. The Galaxy J7 could also launch in the region later on; we’re not sure when the Galaxy A8 will come to Europe, and we also no information on what it will cost.
