Samsung India has officially announced the mid-range Galaxy J7 Duo smartphone for Rs 16,990. The J7 Duo, which will be available in Black and Gold colour options will be up for sale across offline stores starting April 12, 2018. For the most part, the specifications of the Galaxy J7 Duo remain the same as compared to the earlier launched Galaxy J devices, but the highlights of this device include dual rear camera setup, Android 8.0 Oreo presence and Face Unlock feature. The device will compete with the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and the newly launched Nokia 6 (2018) smartphones in the country.
In terms of features and specifications, the Galaxy J7 Duo sports a 13-megapixel and 5MP dual camera set-up on the rear, and an 8 MP on the front. Both cameras come with f/1.9 aperture and LED flash.
The front camera on Galaxy J7 Duo comes with several modes such as selfie focus mode (blurs the background), and beauty mode (enhances selfie by removing blemishes, softening the skin tone, etc.). The Galaxy J7 Duo also comes with face unlock feature, which allows users to unlock the phone with the help of front camera. The Galaxy J7 Duo also gets live focus and background blur shape features, which allows users to change blur shape of background elements.
The Galaxy J7 Duo is powered by Exynos 7-series processor, coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, expandable up to 256GB using a microSD card. The phone sports a 5.5-inch fullHD super AMOLED display and comes with 3,000 mAh battery. The phone boots Android Oreo out of the box. The Galaxy J7 Duo is rolling out with Android 8.0 Oreo, meaning you won’t have to go through the same agonizing wait that other Samsung phone users went through before getting the latest version of Android
Samsung has priced the Galaxy J7 Duo at Rs 16,990. The phone comes in black and gold colour variants. It will be available for purchase starting April 12th in retail stores across the country.
