Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo Specs and Price

samsung galaxy j7 duo

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo is a decent offering and has a number of good features.

However, it seems to have stuck with the old 16:9 aspect ratio rather than the narrow and 18:9 aspect ratio in vogue at the moment. On the other hand, it does have an almost side to side display alongside some average mid-range specs.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo Quick Specs and Features

  • 5.5-inch, Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1280 X 720 pixels (267 ppi)

Design and Display

The smartphone has a sturdy build and a smooth rear panel finish which is soothing to touch. At the front, there are three buttons below the display, a central physical button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor flanked by two touch buttons. Above it, there are sensors and camera with flash alongside the speaker.

Besides being a Super AMOLED display, the display is not really of high resolution with just an HD quality to offer.  Colours appear to be quite nice on the 5.5-inch display with nice contrast thanks to the AMOLED panel.
