Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime debuts in India for Rs. 18,790 ($280)
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime has been unveiled in India today, accompanied by its smaller sibling, the Galaxy J5 Prime. The Galaxy J7 Prime will take over the mantle of the Galaxy J7 (2016), as Samsung throws in a fingerprint sensor in order to keep up with the times.
Galaxy J7 Prime buyers will get a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4, as opposed to the HD display on its predecessor. You should also find it to be zippier when loading apps, thanks to the 1.6GHz octa-core processor and the 3GB of RAM (up from 2GB), while internal storage has been doubled to 32GB. Thankfully, there is a microSD memory card slot that will bump up the J7 Prime’s total storage space by another 256GB.
Selfie lovers will also find the Galaxy J7 Prime worth exploring thanks to the front-facing camera of 8MP with an f/1.9 aperture, an improvement over the 5MP from the Galaxy J7. A 13MP camera with a similar aperture and LED flash resides at the back of the Galaxy J7 Prime.
For power users who cannot leave their smartphones alone for more than a few minutes, the S Power Planning feature should eke out some extra battery life, whenever the non-removable 3,300mAh battery starts to run dry.
There will be dual SIM support to help users separate their personal and business lives on a single handset, while Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow ships right out of the box. Connectivity options of the Galaxy J7 Prime include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth v4.1, Micro-USB (with OTG), and a 3.5mm audio jack.
While not quite the smartphone to get if you would like to commit an affair or be secretive, the Galaxy J7 Prime’s S Secure feature does let you lock or hide apps.
The unlocked Galaxy S7 Prime is available in India from today starting from Rs. 18,790.
The Galaxy J7 Prime will be available with a Vodafone bundled data plan, where you get 9GB of free data over the course of the next three months despite paying for just 1GB of data.
