Samsung Officially Announces Galaxy J7 (2016) and J5 (2016)

Samsung-Galaxy-J7-2016 (1)

Samsung’s newest J series of phones are now official

Samsung’s budget-oriented J series of devices have a plethora of sizes and specifications to choose from, and now the Korean company has added two more to the mix: the 2016 refresh of their J7 and J5 smartphones. The Galaxy J7 is the nicer phone of the pair, sporting a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED full HD display, 3GB of RAM and an octa-core 1.6GHz processor. The smaller J5 sports a 5.2-inch display, HD Super AMOLED display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016)

  • 1.6GHz octa-core processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 5.5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 16GB of storage, expandable via microSD
  • Dual SIM
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, NFC
  • 3300mAh battery


Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) partial specs

  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 5.2-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 1280 x 720 resolution
  • 16GB of storage, expandable via microSD
  • Dual SIM
  • 3G
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS

Both phones are similar to Samsung’s mid-range A series of devices, but obviously since the J series is aimed at the budget market, they don’t have full metal bodies. They do have metal frames though for an added touch of class, but people looking for a nicer handset from Samsung need to take a look at the company’s A series lineup instead.
