After posing for the cameras last week, Samsung’s next camera-centric phone finally became official in Thailand. The Galaxy J7+ is the second dual rear camera phone from Samsung.
The Galaxy J7 family continues to grow with the addition of the J7+ variant and its 5.5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display encased in an aluminum body. Surprisingly, the phone doesn’t sport an Exynos 7870 processor, but rather a MediaTek Helio P20, coupled with 4GB of memory and 32GB of expandable storage.
Its rear dual-camera setup consists of a 13-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture and a second 5-megapixel sensor that features an f/1.9 aperture. The secondary camera captures depth information to allow re-focusing and artificial bokeh effects. There’s a front 16-megapixel snapper for those high-resolution selfies.
Battery capacity is at 3000mAh (smaller compared to the popular J7 Pro) in a similarly sized body. There’s a fingerprint reader in the home button, Always On Display feature, the Bixby Home app, and Android 7.0 Nougat topped with Samsung’s Experience UI.
The Galaxy J7+ is now on pre-order in Thailand for THB 12,900 (US$ 390). Retail sales should start after the pre-order period; however, it’s still unknown when Samsung’s new dual rear camera phone will reach other markets.
