Samsung has released another budget mid-range smartphone in the form of the Galaxy J7 Duo in India. The new phone offers decent set of hardware, and it’s priced rather attractively too.
The phone features a 5.5-inch AMOLED display of 720 x 1280 pixels. Inside, the phone uses Samsung’s Exynos 7 series processor, which should be similar to the ones used in other Galaxy phones such as the Galaxy J7 (2017), Galaxy J5 (2017), and Galaxy A3 (2017). In the memory department, the J7 Duo has a modest 4GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage out of the box. Samsung has put in support for Dual SIM and a microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 256GB too.
Samsung has equipped the J7 Duo with two rear cameras, which is a first for the J series. The dual camera uses a 13MP + 5MP sensor, and both cameras have a large aperture of f/1.9. Over on the front, there is a single 8MP camera that is accompanied by an LED flash – the front camera can be used for the Face Unlock feature. If you aren’t into the Face Unlock feature, there is a more traditional fingerprint sensor located on the home button below the display too. Powering the device is a 3000mAh battery.
The asking price for the Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo is 16,990 Indian rupee, which comes up to about RM1,000. The device can be purchased starting 12 April, and it will come in Black and Gold colourways. No word yet on whether the phone will come to Malaysia.
