Earlier: A new Samsung device with the model number SM-G610 is listed on TENAA and is expected to be the Galaxy On 7 pro. Now the leaked images suggest the device to be called Samsung J7 Prime. Earlier the company had launched Galaxy J7 and Galaxy J7 (2016) smartphones. The device will be launched in the month of September in Vietnam. Unlike the earlier J-series devices, the J7 Prime comes with a metal body and sports better specifications compared to its predecessors.
As seen on TENAA, the device comes with few changes to the conventional Samsung devices. Importantly, the speaker which is usually seen on the front, rear or on the bottom is now shifted to the side edges. The power button and the speaker sits on the right edge while the volume rocker along with dual SIM slots and a MicroSD card slot are placed on the left edge of the device. On the front is a physical home button that comes integrated with the fingerprint sensor.
Coming to the specifications, the Galaxy J7 Prime sports a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display and 2.5D glass laid on top. It is powered by the latest Exynos 7870 octa-core processor built on 14nm FinFET process. There is 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The device runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box with the latest TouchWiz UI on top. Both the SIM slots on this device support 4G LTE. It will be available in Gold and Black colors.
The device features a 13MP primary camera on the rear with LED flash and f/1.9 aperture. On the front is an 8MP selfie camera with the same aperture of f/1.9. It is backed by a 3300mAh non-removable battery that gives at least a day of usage. In early 2016, Samsung launched all new Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 smartphones in China. Till date, these are most affordable metal build Galaxy smartphones, and now the Galaxy J7 Prime is expected to be priced under Rs. 20,000.
