Highlights

  • Samsung also launched the Galaxy J5 Prime
  • The Galaxy J7 Prime is priced at Rs. 18,790
  • The Galaxy J5 Prime is priced at Rs. 14,790

Samsung on Monday as expected launched the Galaxy J7 Prime in India. The company also launched the Galaxy J5 Prime in the country. The smartphones are priced at Rs. 18,790 and Rs. 14,790 respectively. While the Galaxy J7 Prime is officially available from Monday, the Galaxy J5 Prime will go on sale from September-end.

For both the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime and Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime, the company is touting features like S Power Planning (a reserve battery technology for when the battery is running low) and S Secure (allowing users to lock/ hide apps, and more). The company has also detailed a Vodafone bundled data offer for Galaxy J7 Prime and Galaxy J5 Prime customers, wherein they pay for 1GB of data and get 9GB of data free over three months.

To recall, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime is the upgraded version of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016), and features a fingerprint sensor on the home button in addition. Other differences include the presence of a full-HD display instead of an HD display, more memory (3GB RAM instead of 2GB), and a higher resolution front camera (8-megapixel instead of 5-megapixel).

The other specifications of the Galaxy J7 Prime almost completely match the Galaxy J7 (2016). The dual-SIM (Micro-SIM) Galaxy J7 Prime ships with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The smartphone bears a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) IPS display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4, and runs on a 1.6GHz octa-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM.

The Galaxy J7 Prime features a 13-megapixel rear camera with an f/1.9 aperture and LED flash, while there is an 8-megapixel front camera with an f/1.9 aperture also on board. The smartphone comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage that's expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB) - to note, the Galaxy J7 (2016) only supports microSD cards up to 128GB in capacity.

The latest Samsung J-Series smartphone offers 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth v4.1, Micro-USB (with OTG), and 3.5mm audio jack in terms of connectivity options. It is powered by a 3300mAh battery, and measures 151.5x74.9x8.1mm.

The Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime on the other hand is a brand new offering, and more details are still forthcoming.
