Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy J7 (2018) and Galaxy J3 (2018). Both models come in as affordable mid-range models and are successors to the Galaxy J7 (2017) and J3 (2017). Both models don’t really come with so much difference in specs when compared to their predecessors.
Samsung Galaxy J7 (2018)
The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2018) is obviously the better model among the two newly launched phones. It equally comes with a higher price tag. The device comes with a phablet-sized 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 16:9 display with HD resolution of 1280 x 720pixels. The device packs a 13MP main camera with f/1.7 lens aperture while at the front there is a 13MP camera sensor with f/1.9 lens. According to Samsung, both cameras are engineered for the low-light environments in which we take most of our pictures, like restaurants and concerts. Perhaps, there has been some software enhancement if not, this is the same camera hardware on the J7 (2017). The device is also said to come with a large battery but further details are scanty. From the previously leaked manual, we know already that the battery is a removable one.
Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018)
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2018) sports a smaller 5.0-inch display with an HD resolution. The design is almost identical to the J7 (2018) but the display is likely an IPS LCD spec. Samsung did not reveal the processor type, RAM, battery and storage capacity of the J3 (2018). However, the camera configuration includes a 5MP f/2.2 sensor on the front and a primary 8MP camera on the back with a fairly big f/1.9 aperture. Samsung did reveal that both models come with Samsung Knox security.
Samsung says both models are affordable but did not reveal their price tags. However, we expect the models to be priced between $150- $220. The Galaxy J3(2017) was launched for $149.99 and the Galaxy J7 (2017) had a retail price of $219.99. Since there is hardly any major upgrade, the prices shouldn’t be starkly different.
