Shortly after launching the Samsung Galaxy J3 Star, T-Mobile is now getting ready to release another Samsung phone from the 2018 J-series. Called Samsung Galaxy J7 Star, the new handset is larger and better equipped than the J3, which means it'll also be more expensive.
Galaxy J7 Star is "coming soon," and the phone's home screen likely reveals its release date: July 13 (next Friday). Since the J3 Star is sold for $175, we assume the new J7 will cost more than $200, but less than $300. Sprint and Boost Mobile are already selling a version of this handset (called Galaxy J7 Refine), asking $288 and $229, respectively, for it.T-Mobile says the Samsung
Running Android 8 Oreo, the Galaxy J7 Star sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a classic 720 x 1280 pixels resolution, and employs a pretty generic design that Samsung's been using for years on its less advanced phones. The handset is powered by a 1.6 GHz octa-core processor, further featuring a 3300 mAh battery, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable internal memory. The Galaxy J7 Star also offers a 13 MP front-facing camera and a 13 MP rear camera.
All in all, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Star is not made to turn heads, but it's an option to consider if you aren't willing to pay more than $300 for a new T-Mobile smartphone.
