The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the Korean company’s first-ever smartphone with a dual-camera system, and not surprisingly, Samsung released another phone with a similar camera configuration in Thailand. Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy J7+, this mid-range offering is definitely more budget-friendly than the Note 8.
Given the lower price point, the Galaxy J7+’s dual-camera system isn’t exactly as impressive as the Note 8’s. Instead of pairing a wide-angle lens with a telephoto lens, the J7+’s two rear cameras are made up of a 13MP f/1.7 sensor and a 5MP f/1.9 shooter. Interestingly, the J7+ can capture bokeh shots too, although we imagine it won’t be quite as refined as the Note 8’s Live Focus feature.
Aside from its rear camera, the Galaxy J7+ has a 16MP f/1.9 front-facing shooter as well, along with a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, a MediaTek Helio P20 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a 3,000mAh battery.
Although the Galaxy J7+ doesn’t feature a physical Bixby button, the phone comes with the Bixby Home app. Evidently, Samsung is trying to push Bixby to more of its devices. Other specifications of the J7+ include an all-metal body, a fingerprint sensor, and an Always On Display.
At the time of writing, the Samsung Galaxy J7+ is only available for pre-order in Thailand; it retails at 12,900 Thai baht, which comes up to about RM1,650. It remains to be seen if the J7+ will be sold in other markets, but there’s a good chance it’ll be available here in Malaysia in the near future.
