Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime and Galaxy J5 Prime - First Impression
Samsung India launched two new Galaxy J7 series smartphones yesterday. Though we are aware of launch of the first one but the latter is a surprise addition. It seems Samsung has been adding new smartphones regularly to its product line. Last week, it was Galaxy A9 Pro and this week two new entrants in its Galaxy J series.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Specifications:
As it is was reported earlier, Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime gets the premium treatment with all-metal unibody finish. The smartphone sports 5.5-inch 1080p LCD touchscreen powered by 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, 3GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt storage expandable up to 256GB using microSD card. On camera front, it supports 13-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera with LED flash and a fingerprint sensor. The new J7 Prime runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based TouchWiz UI and backed by a decent 3300mAh battery. Connectivity wise, Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime supports dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime Specifications:
However, the surprise addition Galaxy J5 Prime is a 5-inch 720p LCD touchscreen powered by 64-bit 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 chipset and 2GB of RAM. On camera front, you won’t find a major difference except 5-megapixel front camera instead of 8-megapixel reported in J7 Prime smartphone. The front camera comes with a palm gesture selfie, wide angle selfie and beautifying effects for great looking selfies. Both the smartphones are covered by 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3. Similarly, all other things are common except a budget 2400mAh non-removable battery.
Moreover, Samsung has introduced S Battery planning feature that enables battery to preserve power for calls and forward calls when no battery. Similarly, a new addition – S Secure feature allows the users to protect their vital data using the fingerprint sensor.
Both the phones are available in two stunning colors - Black and Gold. As we know, the sale is open to all retail outlets and Samsung online store.
Right now, one can purchase the Galaxy J7 Prime at ₹ 18,790. However, one needs to wait till the month end for the purchase of Galaxy J5 Prime at ₹ 14,790. If we closely examine Samsung India’s pricing of J5 Prime, it seems to be in competition with the recently launched Lenovo’s Moto G4 Plus. However, if one compares specifications of both the phones, then Motorola G4 Plus is a better bet.
