Samsung might be the best smartphone maker in the world right now, but it is a known fact that the company is not able to compete in the midrange and the budget market, thanks to the competition from companies like Xiaomi, Huawei, etc. Samsung has made a lot of mistakes when it comes to launching budget-friendly phones, and the company continues the same this year. Today, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 2 was made official silently, and it is yet another Samsung’s mid-ranger with the old Exynos 7870 processor and same old design language.
In fact, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime, which was launched in 2016, featured the same Exynos 7870 processor! The camera is the same, and so is the battery, RAM, ROM, etc. Also, if you compare the designs of the Prime and Prime 2, you will hardly find any major difference. Well, this is a phone only for those who want a Samsung device only as for INR 13,990 or $215, this is yet another overpriced phone from the company with old hardware.
Still, if you want to know about the design, there is a 16:9 display on the front with a physical home button that also works as a fingerprint scanner. The two touch capacitive buttons are present on either side. The volume rockers are on the left side while the power button is present on the right. On the rear, there is a single camera lens along with the LED flash. On the bottom, there is a micro USB port and the 3.5mm headphone jack.
As for the specifications, you can simply go through the specifications of the 2016’s J7 Prime, and that’s it. Nothing much is changed. The display is a 5.5-inch FHD TFT with 16:9 aspect ratio and an octa-core 1.6GHz Exynos 7870 processor powers the device. If you don’t know, Samsung launched Exynos 7870 in February 2016. RAM is 3GB, and the internal storage is 32GB. The storage can be expanded up to 256GB via micro SD card. It is worth mentioning that there is a dedicated micro SD card slot.
On the rear, there is a 13MP camera with f/1.9 aperture. The front camera gets an upgrade as the J7 Prime 2 has a 13MP front camera (J7 Prime had an 8MP camera).
Under the hood, there is a 3,300mAh battery and the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 2 runs on Android Nougat out of the box. Samsung has mentioned only three sensors on the official page – Accelerometer, Fingerprint Sensor, and Proximity Sensor.
Well, we forgot to mention the main highlight of the device – Samsung Mall. Samsung has mentioned it separately on the official page of the phone. It lets you check the price, availability, etc. of any product that you take a photo of. What a revolutionary feature!
Finally, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 2 is priced at INR 13,990 or $215, and it is not in stock right now.
