Samsung Galaxy J7+ mid-ranger with dual camera

Another mid-ranged smartphone gets the dual-camera treatment. This is the Samsung Galaxy J7+!

Yes, it’s still on the pricey side. Most Samsung devices are. However this time it adds another camera into the fray for the coveted bokeh-effect people on flagship phones this 2017 have been enjoying.

The Philippines will also get a taste of a sub-20,000 peso phone in the form of the Samsung Galaxy J7+.

The cameras

The setup is equipped with a reasonably sound 13 Megapixel main rear shooter for all your photography needs with a 5 Megapixel sibling right beside for bokeh-effect, wide-angled shots, and adds overall details for your images. The front facing camera is bumped to 16 Megapixels to satisfy those selfie urges.

The main selling point of the cameras here will be better performance in low-lit scenarios compared to the same tier phones in the market today. If the previous iterations of lower-leveled phones are the basis then you can be sure the Samsung Galaxy J7+ can deliver. This is made possible through a larger opening of the apertures set in all three cameras of the phone.

We start off with the f/1.7 stop on the main camera and f1.9 for the wide-angled twin. The front facing shooter will be set at f1.9. This is in stark comparison to an average of f/2.0 upwards on similarly spec’d phones in the fray.

A dedicated LED flash on both sides of the phone will aid in most close-up shots on either cameras.

Everything else

Apart from the slight difference from other Galaxy J-series phones, everything else comes Samsung-standard from the 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, a MediaTek Helio P20 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 3,000mAh of battery.

The device will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box underneath Samsung’s proprietary skinning and UI complete with bloatware.

The Samsung Galaxy J7+ will come in two colors: black and gold.
