According to a report by Priceraja, the new smartphone may include a 5-inch display with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution. It is expected to be powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor (Spreadtrum SC8830) along with 1.5GB of RAM. The device is shown to be running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and will come equipped with an 8MP rear camera along with a 5MP front facing camera.

Recently, we saw new 2016 models of the Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7 series that were announced in China. What was not revealed back then, were the price tags. These are mid-range smartphones that pack in quite a punch when it comes to their hardware, and now we know their price tags as well. Samsung Korea has put out a release, which reveals that KT Corporation, Korea’s largest telephone company will be selling both devices and in the process, revealed their price tags for China too.

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) is priced at KRW 290,000 (approximately Rs 17,000), while the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) has been priced at KRW 363,000 (approximately Rs 21,000). Last year, Samsung launched the 2015 models of the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 in India at Rs 11,999 and Rs 14,999 respectively.
