As we exclusively reported earlier this week, Samsung has officially launched its new Galaxy J7 NXT today in India for Rs. 11,490. This is the most affordable J-series smartphone to feature Super AMOLED display. The textured back panel gives a nice grip to hold on to the device. Since there is no NFC support, the device misses the Samsung Pay support. While the power button is on the right edge, the volume rocker can be spotted on the left side of the device. Beneath the display is the physical home button with two capacitive navigation buttons on either side of it.
Earlier: July 19th, 2017 – Last month, Samsung launched the Galaxy J7 Pro and Galaxy J7 Max smartphones in the Indian market. While the Galaxy J7 Pro supports Samsung Pay, the company debuted the Samsung Pay Mini with the Galaxy J7 Max in India. Now, the company is getting ready to launch yet another smartphone under the Galaxy J7 series. According to our exclusive source, Samsung will be launching the Galaxy J7 NXT (SM-J701F/DS) smartphone tomorrow in India. Even the Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 launched in May 2016 also came with the same model number.
The Galaxy J7 NXT will be priced at Rs. 11,490 and packs decent specifications to compete against the Chinese brands. As seen on the Galaxy J7 2016, the Galaxy J7 NXT also sports the same 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution. It comes powered by an unknown Exynos octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz. We expect it to be the Exynos 7870 SoC that also powers the Galaxy J7 Pro & J7 2016. There is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage that can be further expandable up to 256GB.
Talking about the cameras, there is a 13MP rear shooter with f/1.9 aperture and a 5MP selfie shooter with f/2.2 aperture. With the larger f/1.9 aperture, the rear camera on the Galaxy J7 NXT should give better output in low-light conditions. Both the front and rear cameras on this device are accompanied with LED flash. It is backed by a 3,000mAh removable battery that should give at least a day long battery life. Interestingly, the Galaxy J7 2016 with the same form factor featured slightly bigger 3,300mAh battery.
It runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with the customized TouchWiz UI on top. We also expect to see the S-Bike, Ultra Data Saving, and Ultra Power Saving modes. The device comes in Black and Gold colors and will be sold through offline channels across India. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for the complete details from the official launch scheduled for tomorrow.
