With looks that obviously seem to “deter” you from its “ancestors”.., the Galaxy J7 Prime does look ”Primed” for the Big League as it swaps it’s plastic build for a more premium metal finish.
Asides bringing on a refreshed metal finish to its design, the Galaxy J7 Prime also beefs up on some of its features a little bit.
The J7 Prime features an improved 5.5in Super AMOLED 1080x1920p screen (as against the 720p resolution of its J7 predecessors), with the octacore Exynos 7870 CPU help run tasks under the hood. This time around, the J7 Prime also gets upgraded RAM & ROM counts from 2GB to 3GB and from 16GB to 32GB. There’s also the memory card slot for ROM expansion present as before.
Making a return to the J7 Prime are the amazing 13MP main camera that’s been praised for doing better than its peers in this mid-tier category, and the 8MP selfie cam; with both cameras flanked by LED flash. Another upgrade worthy of note is the new fingerprint scanner embedded within the homescreen.
Android’s OS 6.0 is good to go out of the box, with a great 3300mAh non-removable battery getting the phone functioning.
The J7 Prime is said to likely cost $280 in Vietnam for now, with no news confirming international market availability just yet.
