The devices – Galaxy J5 priced at Rs 11,999 and Galaxy J7 priced at Rs 14,999 – will be available only on Flipkart, and will carry freebies worth nearly Rs 4,000, which the company feels effectively brings down pricing to sub Rs 10,000 for consumers. Prebooking of the devices begins between July 16 and July 22.
Asim Warsi, vice president of marketing for IT and mobiles at Samsung said that the company was strengthening its presence in this segment where it has fair share of the market.
The Galaxy J5 has a 5-inch TFT display with a HD screen, backed by 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor coupled with 1.5GB of RAM. The Indian model features 8GB of built-in storage, expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). The 4G enabled handset is powered by 2600 mAh battery.
The J7 has similar specifications but differs in screen size with a larger 5.5-inch TFT display with the same resolution, 16GB of inbuilt storage, a 3000mAh battery and sports an 1.5GHz octa-core Exynos 7580 processor.
