Samsung might be new to the dual-lens camera market but it is trying to catch up with its rivals already with new midrange offerings such as the new Galaxy J7+. The phone features an all-round powerful spec sheet without breaking the bank however you really need to be a staunch Samsung fan to buy a $400 “mid-range” smartphone
Design and Display
The display on the front is a 5.5″ Super AMOLED panel with 1080p Full HD resolution. Below the display is a fingerprint scanner, embedded in the Home button. Bixby can be accessed via an app. The design is what you’d expect in a mid-range phone, featuring a metal build.
Internals and Storage
Under the hood, you get the best of MediaTek in the new Helio P20 octa-core processor, clocked at 2.4GHz. It comes with 3 GB of RAM as well as 32 GB of storage, which can be expanded via a microSD.
The software running on the phone is Android Nougat, with TouchWiz UI. J7+ is dual SIM by default.
The camera here is a dual-lens setup, with a 13 MP f/1.7 and 5 MP f/1.9 wide-angle lens with an LED flash. The software has been optimized to offer the popular bokeh effect with a blurred background.
The front camera consists of a single 16 MP sensor with an LED flash
The battery capacity here is 3000 mAh, which is smaller than other phones in the same series.
The phone will be available for around $390 when it hits around the mid of September. It will be available in Black, White and Gold.
