It looks like Samsung is really building up their J7 line-up. This one is probably the cheapest of them all, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Core.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Core was announced in Pakistan just recently. Just like the previous Galaxy Core devices, the new J7 has low-cost hardware.
Samsung packed the J7 Core with only the “core” essentials, plus some minor extras. What we’re seeing here is a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display. It looks like Samsung can’t get enough of this display tech that they finally decided to put it in budget offerings — a big win for consumers.
It also has a 1.6GHz octa-core processor, aided by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It also packs a quite substantial 3000mAh battery and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.
At the back, it has a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel shooter can be seen on the front. Clearly, this handset isn’t one of those selfie-centric smartphones that are out today.
