Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo appears with dual camera, AMOLED display


The Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo quietly appeared on the company's Indian website earlier – perhaps prematurely, as the link to the page has already been taken down. Its specs and features indicate that we're dealing with a low-priced smartphone, but also one with a trick or two up its sleeve.

On the outside, the Galaxy J7 Duo looks like a typical budget Samsung phone. The 5.5-inch screen is of the Super AMOLED variety, but a 720p resolution sounds underwhelming. Below the screen is the home button with a built-in fingerprint scanner, and on top is placed an 8MP front-facing camera. At the back is a dual camera setup comprised of a 13MP and a 5MP sensor.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo runs Android 8.0 with Samsung's own custom interface on top. It has an octa-core 1.6 GHz processor, and although we don't know the exact model, we can safely assume it's either the Exynos 7884 or the 7885. There are 4 GB of RAM to support you in your multitasking endeavors and 32 GB of storage for whatever you find useful to keep. If those 32 gigs aren't enough for your needs, there's also a microSD slot. The Galaxy J7 Duo also has a 3,000 mAh battery and, as the name suggests, a second SIM slot.

At this time we don't know if the Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo will be available globally. There's no price tag attached to it either.

The phone looks dated, and the fingerprint location is awful.

It's far better than any of the iCrap launched.

Look at the end of the day this will be an inexpensive smartphone that has a full HD OLED display. It has dual SIM cards, expandable storage. It even has dual cameras. Plus a finger print scanner.

Sorry meant to say HD, instead of full HD.

Did you see iPhone X anytime in your life?

Why get an iPhone X that you cannot change the system settings in order to accommodate the stupid notch. I prefer smartphones with no notches. But since some OEMs are now adding in software system software settings to use or not use the notch. So all apps will work out of the box with smartphones like that. Unlike Apples stupid option that FORCES it's developers to add in support for the notch. Now that is just dumb.

Like so many other inexpensive phones, that aren’t Samsung.

Has a crippled stuttery software which can't handle all those things well.

Look at Apple's latest iPhone 8 doesn't even have a full HD display, and that sells for $700. The iPhone 8 plus sells for $900 and it has a full HD display. This is Samsung's inexpensive line of devices. Look stupid people still buy a 4" iPhone SE that doesn't even have a HD display, let alone a Full HD display. That still sells for $350. Talk about a rip offs.

Is there a 4” android that can compete with the se? Nope. Dozens of manuf making the same phablet. BTW the person you replied to said nothing about Apple...man, you need to get some fresh air, or professional help.

You probably didn't read the word "low priced" in the first paragraph before jumping to comment section.

Its not a "low priced" phone at 260$. Its a mid ranger with low end specs.

Samsung seemingly really wants to be surpassed by Chinese no-name brands.
