Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Now Locally Official

Yesterday Samsung Philippines released a teaser on their Facebook page about this new smartphone that will have its users "Time to Prime". Today the company has fully revealed what they were teasing about, it's the new Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime.


The Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime smartphone looks pretty solid and a nicely-built smartphone. The design looks pretty minimalist both front and back panels.

Upfront, the Galaxy J7 Prime sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display and is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 4, also on the sides are the curved 2.5D glass for an added premium feel and touch. On the inside are an octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage which can be expanded via microSD card up to 256GB, according to Samsung.

The camera department is also very generous here as the rear camera got a 13MP shooter with autofocus and f/1.9 aperture making sure that users will still have better photos even if captured in low light settings. The 8MP front camera is also equipped with the same f/1.9 lens. The Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 (which I recently unboxed) is loaded with Samsung's own beautification mode, and I assume this device will also have one. But unlike the Galaxy J7 2016 version, this J7 Prime has Fingerprint Scanner embedded in its home key. See more specs below.
