Samsung’s Mid-Ranged Contender
While Samsung may be soaking in the success of their recent flagship devices, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, they’re not about to forget about the mid-ranged segment. Striking while the iron is hot, the Korean company officially launched the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro today (July 4). Armed with the company’s home-brewed Exynos 7870 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable storage, the phone is poised to take on all comers in its price bracket.

Samsung touts the J7 Pro’s 13-megapixel cameras that have an aperture size of f/1.7 for its rear and f/1.9 for its selfie camera; making it great for low light photography and giving it a shallow depth of field without the need for software assisted bokeh effects.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro is priced at Php 15,990 and comes in three color variants: Black, Gold, and Silver Blue. You can already pre-order the device via Lazada until July 9. The pre-order bundle comes with a Samsung Scoop Bluetooth speaker.
