After being extensively leaked over the past few days, Samsung’s new mid-range J series smartphone – the J7+ is now official in Thailand. The handset, as the reports suggested, comes with two rear cameras which is a first for the company’s J lineup of phones. It is available on pre-order in Thailand for a price of THB 12,900 (~$390/Rs 25,000) and will go on sale from September 18th.
The Galaxy J7+ features Samsung’s standard design language with a metal unibody and a home button up front which also houses a fingerprint scanner. There’s a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED panel which supports the company’s always-on functionality allowing you to quickly glance over the time and notifications without having to wake it. Surprisingly, the J7+ is powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage which is expandable up to 256GB via a MicroSD card and a 3600mAh battery.
The dual camera arrangement on the rear includes a 13-megapixel f/1.7 sensor along with a 5-megapixel f/1.9 lens. Together, these can be employed for producing high-resolution bokeh effects and portraits. There’s also an impressive 16-megapixel f/1.9 selfie camera which also comes with a LED flash.
While Samsung hasn’t revealed which Android version the J7+ runs on, it has mentioned a slew of features it comes bundled with. For starters, two instances of a single application can be operated simultaneously. It also offers something called “secure folder” that essentially allows you store your files such as documents or images in a private and encrypted space. The Galaxy J7+ will be available in three colors including Black, Gold, and Pink. Whether the company brings it other countries remains yet to be seen.
