Galaxy J7 Nxt announced in India

Samsung has announced the Galaxy J7 Nxt in India, a rebranded variant of the Galaxy J7 (2016), which comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 1.6GHz octa-core CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 13MP rear-facing camera.

Aside from shipping running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, the only difference between the Galaxy J7 Nxt and the Galaxy J7 (2016) is that the former has a 3,000mAh cell, while the latter is driven by a 3,300mAh power pack.

In line with the rest of Samsung’s devices destined for the Asian market, the Galaxy J7 Nxt has a dual-SIM slot. There’s a caveat, though: it’s tucked away in a hybrid tray — so if you opt for a second SIM, you can’t insert a microSD card.

We reviewed the Galaxy J7 (2016) last year and came to the conclusion that it’s a solid smartphone with fantastic battery life, but seeing as Samsung swapped the cell in the Galaxy J7 Nxt, the same probably can’t be said about it.

Available exclusively online, the Galaxy J7 Nxt can be pre-ordered from both Samsung and independent retailer Tata Cliq. It’s priced at INR 11,490 ($178) and comes in two colors: black and gold.
