Samsung releases the Galaxy J7 (2017) in South Korea

Samsung today announced the release of the Galaxy J7 (2017) in South Korea. It has teamed up with mobile carrier KT Corp to sell the handset in the country.

This is the very same variant of the Galaxy J7 (2017) that has already been released in several markets across the globe, not the one that’s making the rounds in the rumor mill. The specifications are decent enough for a mid-range smartphone.

The Galaxy J7 (2017) features a 5.5-inch Full HD display with an Exynos 7870 processor under the hood coupled with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It’s powered by Android 7.0 Nougat.

The handset also features a 13-megapixel rear and 13-megapixel front camera as well as a fingerprint sensor. It also has support for Samsung Pay, the company’s mobile payments service. The 3,600mAh battery helps keep the lights on.

We’ve heard a lot of rumors recently about a variant of the Galaxy J7 (2017) that’s destined for China. Leaked renders of the handset show that it may have a dual camera system at the back. Samsung hasn’t confirmed if such a variant exists but there’s enough circumstantial evidence to support that theory now.

Samsung is selling the Galaxy J7 (2017) through KT Corp in South Korea for 396,000 won or $353.
