The Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime, the successor to Samsung’s Galaxy J7, features an all-metal body with a fingerprint scanner embedded in the device’s home button. The new smartphone comes equipped with a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The phone is powered by 1.6 GHz Exynos Octa-core processor, coupled with 3 GB of RAM along with 32 GB of internal storage (expandable up to 256 GB via microSD). The Galaxy J7 Prime features a 13 MP primary camera with f/1.9 aperture, autofocus, and LED flash, as well as a secondary 8 MP shooter. These are the major set of upgrades compared to the Galaxy J7, which was released in March this year. The latter had a normal HD display and offered lower storage options.
The Galaxy J7 Prime comes backed with a 3300 mAh Li-Ion battery, and it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. In terms of connectivity, the new device will support 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth, and Micro-USB options. Other than the fingerprint sensor, the phone will also feature accelerometer and proximity sensors. However, one of the most anticipated features on the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime is the S-Bike feature, for which users will need to attach the NFC tag that comes with the phone on their motorbikes. Right before taking their bikes for a spin, all that users will be required to do is to tap the phone against the NFC tag, thereby enabling the S-Bike feature. This mode will notify callers that the user they are trying to reach is riding, and they can then leave a message.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime is expected to be commercially available in India soon. But the exact date of availability is yet unknown.
