Galaxy J7 Duo (SM-J720F) manual reveals dual rear camera, Bixby Home


Last updated: April 3rd, 2018 at 13:17 UTC+02:00

It was around two weeks ago that we discovered a new Galaxy J7 model thanks to the FCC, with the device carrying model number SM-J720F. Recent reports peg this device to be the Galaxy J7 Duo, and since its model number is lower than that of the Galaxy J7 (2017) (which was SM-J730F), the J7 Duo is expected to be placed somewhere between the Galaxy J7 (2017) and the Galaxy J7 Pro. The latter was released in India last year with a few additional features over the regular J7 (2017), and it looks like the Galaxy J7 Duo will also have at least one feature that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Galaxy J7 Duo will have a dual rear camera

The user manual for the SM-J720F has been published on Samsung’s website, and it reveals that the device will have a dual rear camera setup. If this phone is anything like the Galaxy J7+ that launched in a few Asian markets last year, the two cameras should be 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors, with the second camera enabling Live Focus (bokeh) photos. The manual also shows a removable battery, although that would be surprising for a device that has popped up in benchmarks with the Exynos 7885 SoC that powers the Galaxy A8 and A8+. Granted, the chip powering the J7 Duo might be a lower clocked variant called the Exynos 7884, but it’s hard to believe such a device would offer a removable battery in this day and age.

Of course, no one is going to complain if the J7 Duo does have a removable battery, a feature that Samsung omitted from last year’s Galaxy J series phones. As for the rest of the phone’s specs, it should have a 5.5-inch 720p display, 3GB/4GB of RAM, at least an 8-megapixel front camera (with a front-facing flash), dual SIM functionality, a fingerprint sensor, and Android 8.0 Oreo. As the manual confirms, Bixby will be making its debut on Samsung’s budget lineup with the Galaxy J7 Duo. Since there’s no dedicated Bixby button, the phone will only offer Bixby Home and Bixby Reminder, both of which you will be able to easily ignore if you wish to.
