Samsung Galaxy J7 Specs and Price

Just a little above the Samsung Galaxy J3 and more or less mid-range smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy J7 has a more improved spec sheet an offers more than what just meets the eye.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 maintains the traditional Samsung design with physical home button and the 16:9 build that is gradually being left out in recent times.

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2018) Key Specs and Features

  • 5.5-inch, Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1280 x 720 pixels (267 ppi)
  • Android 8.1 Oreo (Samsung Experience)
  • Octa-core Exynos 7870 CPU with 2GB RAM

  • 13MP rear camera and a 13MP front camera
  • 4G LTE
  • Fingerprint sensor (front)
  • 3, 300mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery

Design and Display

As stated before, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2018) looks more like the design outlook Samsung started out with and that includes the navigation buttons that are now replaced by on-screen ones in their more high-end smartphones. It looks more like the Samsung Galaxy S7 with the home button doubling as the fingerprint scanner. You’ll find that Samsung is written on both the front and the back of the smartphone a little overboard for me.

Unlike the Samsung Galaxy J3, the smartphone carries the AMOLED screen type as seen in the premium models but with a much lesser resolution. That said, the resolution is set at 1280 x 720 pixels and a size of 5.5-inch. is a decent offering for a Samsung mid-range phone.

Battery and Camera

A little above the average power seen in most of this level of smartphones is what the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2018) comes with and should just be about enough to get the smartphone through the day. Powered by a 3, 300mAh non-removable battery, the smartphone still makes use of the MicroUSB port for charging.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 has a 13MP front camera as well as a similar 13MP camera at the rear side with LED flash on both sides.

Hardware and Software

As for what lies beneath the surface, the Samsung smartphone performs tasks using their own chipset which is just enough for the J7 model for this year. In that regard, there is an Exynos 7870 SoC which is sufficient for a smooth performance and that is what you get.

Furthermore, there is about 2GB RAM and a 16GB internal storage space that comes with the smartphone. As you might have guessed, this expandable up to a whopping 256GB with a memory stick. There is also Android 8.1 paired Samsung’s UI formerly called TouchWiz but now Samsung Experience.
