Samsung Galaxy J7 Perx goes live at Sprint, priced to sell for $265

The Galaxy J7 (2017) has finally made it to Sprint after the smartphone was released by Verizon last month under the moniker Samsung Galaxy J7 V. Virgin and Boost Mobile are likely to get the mid-range phone as well, along with TracFone and AT&T.

Sprint is now selling it as Samsung Galaxy J7 Perx for $265 outright. Customers can also choose to get it for $11 per month for 24 months, but no upfront payment.

The Galaxy J7 Perx is clearly a mid-range smartphone powered by Android 7.0 Nougat. The handset comes with a 5.5-inch display that supports HD (720p) resolution, but it packs a more than decent 3,300 mAh battery.

Hardware-wise, Samsung's Nougat-powered smartphone comes equipped with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB expandable storage. Also, the phone packs an 8-megapixel primary camera and 5-megapixel selfie camera combo.

It lacks NFC connectivity, but it does include support for Sprint's LTE Plus network, as well as Bluetooth 4.2 and FM Radio, for those still interested in this feature.

As mentioned earlier, the smartphone is expected to arrive at Boost and Virgin as Galaxy J7 Perx, but TracFone will launch it as Galaxy J7 Sky Pro. We have no info on AT&T's own Galaxy J7 (2017) version yet.

The S8+ should be selling for $265 outright with no contract. People need to wake up and stop paying these ridiculous prices.

Yes it costs more to manufacture the S8. The dude thinks it is the same as iPhone and other cheap brands. If you add the cost of R&D and marketing the cost is about 350$\€

I agree the prices are a joke and they come out with new phones every year now.

Will this phone work when traveling international, for example, Caribbean or Mexico?
