Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) Features

Samsung this year has come up with the last year's successor the Galaxy J7. The phone did quite well in the market last year targeting mid-range segment. This year with the refreshed version Samsung Galaxy J7 (6) which basically refers to 2016 edition, Samsung has made some decent changes in terms of performance and adding the Bike Mode which debuted in the Samsung Galaxy J3 first. Let's have a look what are the major changes the Galaxy J7(6) sports:

  • The Samsung Galaxy J7(6) now a sports a Samsung Exynos 7870 Octa Core chipset clocked at 1.6GHz and combined with it this time is 2GB of RAM which should be good enough for moderate multitasking usage.
  • In terms of camera, the Galaxy J7(6) comes with a 13MP camera on the rear with f/1.9 aperture which sounds to be very good and reminds the camera from the Samsung Galaxy S6. The rear camera can record videos up to 1080p and has an LED Flash.
  • Talking about the front camera, there is a 5MP sensor on the front with an LED Flash on the front as well for those bright selfies & video calling.
  • While the Marshmallow update for the last years Galaxy J7 is yet unknown, the latest Galaxy J7(6) is bundled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with Samsung's TouchWiz UI running on top of it.
  • The phone has also received a bump in the battery capacity and now packs a slightly larger 3300mAh battery.
  • The device sports the same 5.5 inch HD (1280x720 pixels) AMOLED display which is quite a disappointment as we would now expect Full HD displays for the price range.
  • The Samsung Galaxy J7(6) accepts dual Micro SIMs and both are 4G enabled with VoLTE support.
  • For storage you get the same 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a MicroSD card.
  • The device is available in three colour options viz. White, Black and Gold.

When Samsung phones suffered a mirage of in-built glitches and hence inadvertently resulted into blasts, it became thougher for the customer to buy Samsung phones. But, Samsung J7 hell broke the cliche, and turned out to be a pretty good phone. It piqued the masses to rely on it over its amazing features and reasonable price. So here it is J7 (2016) smartphone with 5.50-inch 720x1080 display powered by 1.6GHz octa-core processor alongside 2GB of RAM and 13-megapixel rear camera.
