After numerous leaks, Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 and Galaxy J7 2016 has officially been announced. Both these phones offer upgrades in the hardware department over its predecessor.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 sports exactly the same size as the Galaxy S7 Edge with 5.5-inch, however, the Galaxy J7 has a Full HD (1920×1080P) resolution instead of quad HD resolution. The display panel used here is of AMOLED technology that provides better battery saving features.
Talking about the performance, the Samsung Galaxy J7 boasts octacore processor (Exynos 7 Octa 7870). It’s a 14nm chip FinFET process technology that has 8 Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.6Ghz. The chip offers 30% less power consumption than traditional 28nm technology while offering identical performance.
