Besides the new Galaxy A8 that was announced yesterday, Samsung also quietly introduced two new additions to its affordable Galaxy J series: the Galaxy J5 and J7. These smartphones sport a unique LED flash for the front camera, and even supports FDD and TDD LTE bands.
Announced for the Chinese market just last month, the Galaxy J5 and J7 share several similar hardware specs, including 1.5GB of RAM, dual SIM support and 16GB of expandable storage with support for up to 128GB microSD cards. Both the J5 and J7 also feature a 13MP f/1.9 rear camera and a 5MP front facing camera with LED flash. They also run on Android 5.1 out of the box.
The main differences are in the processor and of course, size. The Galaxy J7 has a 5.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, and has a larger 3,000mAh battery. On the other hand, the Galaxy J5 sports a smaller 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 1.2GHz quad-core chip, and packs a 2,600mAh battery inside.
Both the Galaxy J5 and J7 are available in Malaysia immediately for RM799 and RM999 respectively, which is slightly cheaper than their retail prices in China. For more information, check out the official product page on Samsung Malaysia’s website.
