Not long after its release in China, these two updated mid-rangers reach Europe, with Spain and France being the first two markets to get it.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
