Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime to be introduced in India soon, price leaks ahead of launch

Samsung introduced a beefed-up variant of the Galaxy J7 (2016) in Vietnam last week. The Galaxy J7 Prime offers higher memory, a better front-facing camera, a metal unibody, and a fingerprint scanner over the Galaxy J7 (2016). Now, the South Korean smartphone giant is prepping to launch the device in India.

According to the usually reliable Indian mobile phone retailer Manish Khatri, Samsung will soon launch the Galaxy J7 Prime in India with a MOP of INR 18,790 ($282). The device will be sold alongside the Galaxy J7 (2016) and the Galaxy J7. The Galaxy J7 Prime features a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel primary camera with 1080p video recording, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,300 mAh battery.

It runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and features dual-SIM card slot, LTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, NFC, and a microUSB port. The Galaxy J7 Prime that is being sold in Vietnam comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, but Samsung has decided to limit the internal storage to just 16GB in the Indian variant for some reason. Why do you do this, Samsung?

The device is now released & available for purchase from offline stores (though without any official announcement). It is also understood that the device has a laggy experience while playing games which is a complete disaster from Samsung. Was thinking of buying the device but…

So even the J series isn’t exempt from the unibody decision. Samsung, why are you doing this? We all know it’s planned obsolescence. Disposable phones. If I want an iphone, I’ll get one. Selling out.

With TFT display. Crazy why samsung is killing some unique features. J7 2016 it killed sensors and low quality ear phones. Google map won’t work well. I’m very much disappointed with samsung doing this. Sansung has good marketing strategy but Indians are very wellversed with technology don’t think people can buy because of brand.
