Until now we’ve seen Samsung using the dual rear camera setup only with the flagship Galaxy Note 8 (review) smartphone. But it looks like the Galaxy Note 8 is not the only ‘Samsung’ handset available with two cameras at the back. A new budget smartphone called as the Samsung Galaxy J7+ has made a hush-hush appearance in the market. The device has two rear cameras and is quietly gone on sales in Philippines. The smartphone is accompanied by another ‘J7’ variant, going by the moniker Galaxy J7 Core.
Samsung Galaxy J7+
Samsung Galaxy J7+ is already listed on the company’s Philippines website with images and specifications. A couple of links also lead to third-party online retailers quoting the handset’s price at PHP 19,990, which roughly means Rs 25,260 or USD 390.
The smartphone is listed in two colour variants, Black and Gold, on the official website. The highlight of the device is, of course, the dual rear cameras, which until now was only seen with the flagship Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The Galaxy J7+ even borrows the Live Focus feature along with pro depth-effect selfies. The smartphone also makes use of built-in Galaxy Animated Filters along with stickers and stamps.
At the back there is a 13MP RGB lens with F/1.7 aperture along with a 5mp monochrome lens with F/1.9 aperture. The difference here is that the cameras are set in a vertical position instead of a horizontal position like in the Galaxy Note 8. The Samsung Galaxy J7+ also has a 16MP front-facing camera with F/1.9 aperture and dedicated LED flash.
The Android-based Galaxy J7+ sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Super AMOLED screen and is backed by an octa-core processor along with 4GB RAM. Also included is 32GB inbuilt storage, which can be increased up to 256GB with a microSD card.
Supporting dual SIM cards, the Samsung Galaxy J7+ has a 3000mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 16 hours of talk time over 3G.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Core
Looking at the specifications, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Core seems like a less powerful version of the Galaxy J7. It comes in Black and Gold colour variants and is priced at PHP 9,990. This means roughly Rs 12,600 or USD 195.
The Android-based Galaxy J7 Core has the same 5.5-inch AMOLED screen but with a lower HD (720×1280 pixels) resolution. The handset uses an octa-core processor made using 14nm process, clubbed with 2GB RAM. It also has 16GB storage, which can be increased to 256GB with a microSD card.
The dual-SIM smartphone features a 13MP rear camera with F1.9 aperture along with a 5MP front-facing camera with F2.2 aperture. The 3000mAh battery is rated to deliver up to 21 hours of talk time over 3G networks.
Samsung has not yet made a public announcement of the smartphone. It has also not revealed if these two devices will be coming to other countries or not.
