Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016) reach Europe
Samsung has recently updated the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7, making them available in China first, as it usually happens with such low-end and mid-range families of devices. Now, the Galaxy J5 (2016) shows up in France, while the larger Galaxy J7 (2016) appears in an official product page published by Samsung Spain.
Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016) come both loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but the models listed in Europe apparently have both 720p screens. On the other hand, the 5.5-inch display of the Galaxy J7 (2016) that was introduced in China last month offers 1,920X1,080 pixels. Even more, the Chinese Galaxy J7 (2016) comes with 3 GB RAM, but the European version only gets 2 GB.
The Galaxy J7 (2016) has a list price of 299 EUR in Spain - roughly 335 USD. Unfortunately, its sibling does not have a price yet, although the official support page is already up. We will get back to these attractive mid-rangers as soon as we hear more about them and their anticipated US launch.
