It appears the recently launched Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime will make its way to Indian shores soon, priced at Rs. 18,790. The information was revealed by an established Mumbai-based retailer.
To recall, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime was launched in Vietnam last month at VND 6,290,000 (roughly Rs. 19,000), and thus the India price revealed by Mahesh Telecom on Twitter indeed seems plausible. The MRP on the box is listed as Rs. 19,400.
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), more inbuilt storage (32GB instead of 16GB), 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 32GB 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.
