Samsung Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 certified for sale in China [images, specs]

It was back in April that we first head of the Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7 smartphones and with the two devices now getting certified for sale in China, their existence has more or less been confirmed. Also, the TENAA website which has given the duo the green light for sale in the country has revealed specs and images of both handsets.

Quite a lot of information on the Samsung Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 has already been revealed thanks to a previous leak and we can now measure the accuracy of the details. The former handset is said to be the smaller of the two sporting a 5-inch display, while the latter has a 5.5-inch panel.

The phones will be beefier than the Galaxy J1 which was the first addition to the series. Samsung looks to have gone with a plastic design for both handsets, notes PhoneArena. And we wouldn’t be surprised by this mainly since the J series is designed with affordability in mind.
