The J7+ has been officially launched in Thailand, so it's only a matter of time before it makes its way into the global market. Some would consider it ill-named, though, as it has the same display size as the regular J7, and a significantly smaller battery.

Samsung isn't letting up on the J7 train anytime soon, with OEM announcing the launch of the J7+ in Thailand just a few months after the launches of the J7 and J7 Pro.

While most phones with the "Plus" label tend to have larger displays than their regular siblings, the J7+, surprisingly, sports the same 5.5-inch FHD display that's on the J7 and J7 Pro. The J7+, for the most part, makes no significant upgrades on its siblings, with the camera department being the only exception.

While the J7 and J7 Pro featured single 13MP rear sensors and 13MP selfie shooters, the J7+ opts for a dual rear camera setup (13MP+5MP) and a 16MP selfie shooter. The J7 and J7 Pro were powered by Samsung's Exynos 7870 but the J7+ ships with an unnamed SoC with a 2.4GHz clock speed. This SoC doesn't fit the profile of any existing Exynos chip, and is most likely a MediaTek one, with the Helio P20 and P25 being likely candidates.

The J7+ features 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage—expandable to 256 GB with a Micro SD—a 3000mAh battery that's a downgrade from the 3600mAh ones on its siblings, and a front-facing fingerprint sensor. It comes with a price tag of THB 12,900, which is the equivalent of about US$390.

This device is available on preorder until September 17, and has only been announced for the Thailand market. Hopefully, it makes its way to the global market soon.
