Samsung starts selling 32 GB variant of Galaxy J5 Prime and J7 Prime

Samsung announced the Galaxy J5 Prime and J7 Prime for the Indian market last year in September. Both the handsets were announced in 16 GB of internal storage, but Samsung has now introduced higher 32 GB variants of both the smartphones.

All the remaining specifications remain the same. The Galaxy J7 Prime includes a 1.6GHz Exynos octa-core processor coupled with 3 GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) IPS display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and dual-SIM card support. Other features include a 13 MP rear camera with an f/1.9 aperture and LED flash, an 8 MP front camera with an f/1.9 aperture, expandable storage via microSD slot which accepts cards of up to 256 GB in capacity.

There’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button and a 3,300 mAH battery. In the connectivity department the phone offers 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth v4.1, microUSB with OTG, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

The J5 Prime is a smaller version of the J7 prime and features a more nimble quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, expandable storage, a 5-inch 720p display with a similar curved Gorilla Glass and a smaller 2,400 mAH battery.

Samsung has focused on battery and security with the two new phones. Both the smartphones offer Samsung’s S-Power Planning which comes with three features including reserve battery for calls, extended battery time and forward calls when no battery. In terms of the security aspect, the S-Secure again offers three features, lock/hide apps, secure folder and secure Wi-Fi. The phones also feature the previously announced S-Bike mode.

The new 32 GB J5 Prime is priced at Rs 14,900 while the J7 Prime will retail at Rs 16,900.
