The Samsung Galaxy J5 and Samsung Galaxy J7 were launched first in China last month. Notably the company has launched slightly different models from those launched in China. The Android 5.1-based smartphones are dual-SIM dual standby handsets that will be available in Black, White, and Gold colours.
The Samsung Galaxy J5 features a 5-inch TFT display with a HD screen resolution of 1280×720 pixels. The smartphone is backed by 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC coupled with 1.5GB of RAM. The Indian model features 8GB of built-in storage instead of the Chinese model’s 16GB, and it is further expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB).
It packs a 2600mAh battery, which is rated to deliver a standby time of 342 hours. It sports a 13-megapixel rear autofocus camera with f/1.9 aperture and 5-megapixel front camera. Apart from 4G, the handset supports 3G, Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, Glonass and Micro-USB. The Galaxy J5 measures 142x73x8.5mm and weighs 149 grams.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 features similar specifications to the Galaxy J5.
