Galaxy J7 (2017) and J5 (2017) Series Overview

6 June, 2017 Samsung


After a lot of speculations, leaks and rumors, the Galaxy J5 & J7 2017 are finally out as Samsung made it official yesterday. We have had enough of the rumors, but now it\'s time to take a look at the actual internals.


Display


J5 has a 5.2-inch 720p display, while the J7 has a 5.5-inch 1080p screen as expected. The good news is that both of them are AMOLED panels.


SoC and RAM


Both devices share the same Exyno 7870 14nm chips with Mali-T830 MP2 GPU. The J5 2017 only has 2GB of RAM though, but the J7 2017 has a more respectable 3 gigs of RAM.


Camera


The 13-mp rear camera sensor with f/1.9 aperture is common to both devices but the J7 also has a 13-mp front camera with flash, unlike the J5, which is stuck with a plain 5-mp shooter without any flash aid.


Battery and Price


A healthy 3,600mAh battery will be powering the J7, while the J5 will have to settle with a smaller 3,000mAh cell instead. The price difference between the two devices is basically of £60, so you would probably be much better off opting for the Galaxy J7 2017 for £340 ($440 approximately) than the Galaxy J5 2017 for £280 ($360 approximately).


Other than these, the J7 will come with USB Type-C while the J5 will be sporting the aged but more accessible micro-USB. Fingerprint scanner will be present in the usual place on both devices; i.e. just under the Home button.
