The new Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) and J7 (2016) smartphones have finally found their way into India today. These devices were first unveiled for China, after which they had made their way into South Korea.
What’s important is that Samsung has chosen to go for quite a competitive pricing model for both its new handsets. While the Galaxy J5 (2016) will be made available by the company at Rs 13990, the J7 (2016) will be seen going for Rs 15900. Both will be sold exclusively via Flipkart from tomorrow onwards.
Some of the important aspects about these two new smartphones are metal frames, Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and selfie cameras that are accompanied by front-facing flash modules. Both of them offer dual SIM slots and support 4G networks.
A neat look at the specs of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016):
– Display: 5.5-inch Super AMOLED, 720p HD
– OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop
– Processor: 1.6GHz octa core
– Memory: 2GB RAM, 16GB storage (expandable up to 128GB)

The Galaxy J5 (2016) is the smaller one among the two, as it grabs a 5.2-inch 720p Super AMOLED display. The device is powered by a 1.2GHz quad core processor that’s paired with 2GB of RAM. 16GB worth of expandable storage is also onboard, aside from a 3100mAh battery, a 13MP f/1.9 rear camera and a 5MP f/1.9 front snapper.
Like we said, Samsung’s Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016) handsets will be made available for purchase in India from tomorrow onwards. They will only be sold by Flipkart in the country, at their respective prices of Rs 13990 and Rs 15900.
