The Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 will be available in physical retail outlets as well as online in India for MRP Rs. 15990. The Samsung J7 2016 is now on sale on Flipkart.

The last year’s Samsung Galaxy J7  and J5 got launched last year in India in mid-July 2015.

Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 Specs Price and Launch Date

Samsung has been making waves in the tech circles as well as is getting a good response from Android users worldwide for it’s latest Samsung S7 and S7 Edge smartphones.

It is a good time for Samsung to win back some of the older fans from rival companies like Xiaomi and Lenovo with the launch of New Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 and J7 2016.

Samsung hopes to do well with the refreshed Samsung J7 and J5. The Samsung J7 2016 looks different compared to the older model and sport a metallic build with a more modern design. It has a distinct speaker grill near the back camera.

All Subtle changes Make Samsung J7 2016 Better.

The phone uses the polycarbonate material for the back cover and comes with the signature Samsung design with an oblong shape home button at the front.


Further, it has a 5.5-inch display with Super AMOLED panel and HD resolution. While the international variant of the Samsung J7 2016 has got a Full HD display.

The display is Super AMOLED and offers great viewing angle and higher contrast ratios when compared to the typical IPS LCD displays.

Egregiously, Samsung has removed the Full HD display panel which they have given in China, which essentially makes it a deal breaker for many buyers.


Powering the device is the 1.6 GHz + S5E7870 (Samsung Exynos 7870), Octa-Core processor in India. While some of the global variants are also getting the Snapdragon 616 Octa-Core Soc.

The Samsung J7 2016 Chinese variant came with 3 GB of RAM while they have launched the J7 in India with only 2 GB RAM.

The internal storage is 16 GB and can support micro-sd card up to 128 GB, giving buyers large storage options.


The rear camera is improved and has a faster focus and have a 13 Megapixel shooter and the front camera is a 5 MP shooter with wide angle lens and f/1.9 aperture with dedicated flash support.


The Samsung J7 2016 has the dual sim support and will offer high speed 4G LTE connectivity.

The best feature can be a large size 3300 mAH battery capacity for the smartphone which can make it ideal for lot of buyers.

Pleasantly, it will run on the Android Marshmallow OS out of the box and also with a less annoying Touch-wiz UI.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 also has support for NFC and has Bike Mode too which Samsung showcased with the Samsung Galaxy J3.

Major Pros

  1. Better Build And Design.
  2. HD AMOLED Display
  3. Good Camera
  4. NFC Support
  5. Great Battery Life

Major Cons

  1. Lack of 3 GB RAM
  2. Lack of Full HD Display

I think by dropping the price and not including 3 GB RAM and FHD display, Samsung has not done justice to the J7 this year and the J5 looks to be a better option (barring its slow processor).

It would have been great if Samsung would have included the Full HD display and 3 GB RAM with the smartphone and may be charged extra 2K for it.

“Overall Samsung J7 2016 is a good device with excellent battery life, Android Marshmallow, gorgeous design and a decent camera.”
