Samsung has today announced Galaxy J5 and J7 (2016 edition) in China, which are the successors of last year’s successful Galaxy J5 and J7. Both the smartphones will be available in Gold, White and Pink color variants and will be rolling out soon in China, but pricing details are yet to be revealed.
Galaxy J5 (2016)
Galaxy J5 (2016) is fitted with a 5.2 inch Super AMOLED display and will be powered by 64-bit 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of ROM and an micro SD card slot which supports up to 128GB. J5 (2016) houses an adequate 3100mAh battery.
Galaxy J7 (2016)
Galaxy J7 (2016) includes a 5.5 inch full HD Super AMOLED display, handled by 1.6 GHz octa core Exynos 7870 SoC paired with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt memory which can be further expanded by up to 128GB via microSD card support. It is backed by 3300mAh battery.
Both Galaxy J5 and J7 (2016) include a 13 MP AF rear camera with LED flash and wide f/1.9 aperture lens, alongside a 5 MP frontal shooter with LED flash and 120 degree wide angle lens which is perhaps enough to label it as a selfies-centric phone. Software is Android 5.1 Lollipop based TouchWiz OS.
