Samsung has made the Galaxy J7+ official. The phone was leaked a couple of months ago, and clearer pictures of the device last week. The Galaxy J7+ is not only the first Galaxy J series smartphone to feature a dual-camera setup, but also the first non-premium smartphone from the company with the feature. The only other Samsung phone to have a dual-camera setup is the recently announced Galaxy Note 8.
The Galaxy J7+, which has appeared on Samsung Thailand's website, features a 5.5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display with 2.5D glass covering, a metal and glass design, an octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot.
The dual-camera setup consists of a 13-megapixel sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a 5-megapixel sensor with f/1.9 aperture. The combination of two sensors allows users to click images with background defocus for a more striking effect. The rear-facing camera setup of the phone can record 1080p videos. The front-facing camera on the phone uses a 16-megapixel sensor with a fixed-focus lens and screen flash feature.
The phone comes with connectivity options such as a dual-SIM card slot, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a USB Type-C port. The Galaxy J7+ comes packed with a 3,000 mAh non-removable battery. Other features of the phone include a fingerprint sensor, Always-On Display, Face Detection, Secure Folder, Dual Messenger, and Bixby Home.
The smartphone will be offered in Black, Pink, and Silver, and is priced at THB 12,900 (approximately $389) in Thailand. Pre-booking for the Galaxy J7+ has commenced in the country already, and those who pre-book the device will be eligible to receive the $75 worth Samsung U Flex wireless earphones for free.
