This 5.5-inch metal-clad Android smartphone already arrived in India and the Philippines, and now the time has come for the US market. The Exynos 7870 Octa-driven handset can be acquired via Amazon for $295.97 USD.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime is, basically, a Galaxy J7 (2016) on steroids. This Android handset with a metal body was recently released in India and the Philippines, and now those interested in purchasing one in the US can grab it from Amazon.
The specs and features of the Galaxy J7 Prime place it in the mid-range sector of the market - 5.5-inch full HD TFT multitouch display, Exynos 7870 Octa SoC, 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, microSD support up to 256 GB, 8 MP front camera, 13 MP main camera on the back, fingerprint reader, 3,300 mAh battery. Unfortunately, there is no Android Nougat running on the Galaxy J7 Prime out of the box.
Amazon only has the black color available for now, carrying a price tag of $285.02 USD (with an additional $4.85 USD for shipping). Unfortunately, the unlocked Galaxy J7 Prime is not compatible with Verizon Wireless and Sprint, only working with GSM/LTE carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
