Earlier this year, Samsung announced the two new J series phones, the Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7 2016 editions. Now, the company has finally revealed pricing on the two models. The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) is priced at KRW 2,90,000 (Rs. 16870 approximately) and the Galaxy J7 is priced at KRW 3,63,000 (Rs. 21115 approximately). Both these device are expected to launch in India later this year.

Samsung is not only giving the two phones an internal upgrade, but the design has also been updated. Both phones now sport a metal frame and refreshed design. Among the two phones, the J5 is more budget friendly and sports a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display, featuring an 1280 x 720p resolution. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC and packs 2GB of RAM to boot. The 16GB internal storage is expandable as the phone features a dedicated micro-SD card slot, which can take up to a 128GB microSD card. There is a 13MP camera at the back, with f/1.9 aperture and a 5MP camera at the front. Samsung has equipped the J5 with a 3100mAh removable battery pack.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 on the other hand sports a 5.5-inch display, which is still pushing 1280 x 720 pixels. There is a 1.6GHz octa-core SoC inside, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage on tap. In the camera department, it is similar to the Galaxy J5, featuring a 13MP camera at the rear and a 5MP at the front. A larger screen allows more space for the battery and the Galaxy J7 is able to pack in a 3300mAh unit.
