Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7 hits Asian Maket: New Budget Lineup

Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7

Galaxy J1 is the entry-level low-end base model in J series. After quite some time, they have launched the most anticipated budget phones. These are Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7. They are first coming to India, China, and Nepal. They have been priced at a good range. These are new phones that offer good hardware and new features at a lower price. The price of Samsung Galaxy J5 in Nepal is Rs 17,900 and price of Samsung Galaxy J7 in is Rs 18,900.

These phones have been launched first in the world’s most populated countries. So we guess it is to attract people with a medium budget. These are phone meant for masses. Many high-end features have been brought down to this phone. They have got a touch of A series features as well. Galaxy J7 and J5 are better selfie phones after A series. It is because they have flash at the front. This is the first time from Samsung.

Galaxy J7 and J5 Specifications, Details

Galaxy J5 is a smartphone with  5” screen and quad-core processor. The screen is Super AMOLED which is taken as best in the industry. Inside there is Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 which has 1.2 GHz 4 core processor. Samsung is using this processor in mid-range processors as well. Then there is 1.5 GB of RAM and 8 GB internal storage. About 4.5 GB is available for use from that storage. The back camera is 13 Megapixel at f/1.9 with flash. And the front-facing camera is 5 MP at f/2.2.

Samsung Galaxy J7 is slightly bigger phone has 5.5” SAMOLED  display with 720p resolution. It has powerful octa-core Exynos 7850 processor in Indian model but Snapdragon 615 in the Chinese model. This seems like a market experiment. The benchmark shows that Exynos beats the SD 615 processor.

Both phones are running on 5.1.1 Lollipop and new UI. Just as Galaxy J5, this smartphone also has 1.5 GB RAM and 16 GB onboard storage. Users can also add external SD card up to 128 GB in both J5 and J7. This feature started from Galaxy J1 and it is great. Camera configuration is the same as J5 in the Galaxy J7. For battery, there is a 3000 mAh removable battery.

Samsung has 3G and 4G models of both of these. They are only launching LTE models where there are network and infrastructure. This is because LTE models are slightly expensive due to newer modems. Therefore it is meaningless and bad to charge users for tech they can’t use.


Better Changes and Upgrades

Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7 both have the same memory and storage size. They also have the same camera setup on both sides. The screen resolution is also the same both phones. But as the screen size is different, J5 gets higher pixel density because it is smaller. Samsung has brought really good specifications to its new upper budget and mid-range phones now. This is very good. We are getting high-resolution AMOLED screens, 13 MP camera with 1080p video recording.

Well, there is no point in buying if there is no change or a benefit. Between these phone Galaxy J7 offer significantly faster processor, big screen and battery. This can be deal maker for some people. People these days want to consume content, watch videos and movies on their phone. These devices also bring up some good things like HDR option in the camera. The camera UI and OS are the same as seen on Galaxy S6. People like a removable battery and external SD card support so there is 128 GB SD card support and battery changeability.

These phones can beat the Galaxy E series and Grand series. We have compared all A series vs J series phones to give a better idea as well. All they lack is Gorilla Glass protection. For the price Samsung is offering these phones, it doesn’t matter. These are budget and value phones and they are reasonable. The price of Galaxy J5 is INRs 12000 and price of Galaxy J7 is INRs 15000 in India. They will be sold exclusively on Flipkart and they said they will provide game credit. According to our market sources, Samsung is going to discontinue E series to replace it with J series.
