Samsung Galaxy J7 2016


The Samsung Galaxy J7 was launched in March 2016 and is a slightly lower spec version of the J7 Prime. It’s similar to the prime variant in terms of looks, though it packs in lower RAM, lesser resolution and a weaker camera on the front panel. As goes without saying, this one is cheaper than its J7 Prime counterpart too.
