We have some good news for Samsung’s fans, the Galaxy J7 Prime finally hit the US shore. Although released some time ago the phone isn’t a completely new device, so far it was available only on several Asian markets. Distributed by Amazon the unlocked Galaxy J7 Prime surprised us with a metal body, some solid specs and a reasonable price. Right now the dual SIM variant of the phone can be yours for less than $300 witout any long term contracts.
Samsung’s Galaxy J7 Prime has arrived to the US market. Priced at $285 the phablet offers metal design, dual-sim support and package of solid hardware.
Originally available only in India and few other Asian markets the Galaxy J7 Prime is now within the reach of US customers. Since the phone is sold directly by Amazon, we assume that it comes with US warranty, but we can’t vouch for that. So before purchase, you’d better make sure and ask Amazon for the warranty details.
The dual SIM model of the Galaxy J7 Prime costs $285 and is promised to work with all major US GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. Unfortunately, the handset isn’t compatible with Verizon Wireless and Sprint.
For that money, don’t expect anything more advanced that a decent LTE-capable mid-ranger. Perhaps specs-wise the phone is surely far from a killing flagship, it is still a nice option if you’re looking for an affordable phone. Driven by the 1.6GHz Exynos 7870 processor coupled with 3GB RAM and 16GB or 32GB of built-in expandable storage optionally, the phone runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of box. Dressed in an aluminum shell the device houses a pretty massive 5.5-inch Full HD screen panel and offers sharp optic parameters represented by a 13MP primary camera and an 8MP front-facing selfie sensor. Other than that the phablet features a fingerprint scanner for improved data safety and is kept alive by a pretty generous 3,300 mAh battery.
As for color options, at this point Amazon offers only the black variant of the phone. The retailer hasn’t confirmed if they plan to sell the gold model sometime in near future yet. Last but definitely not least, those of you who find the phone appealing, need to make a really quick purchase decision as the Amazon’s Galaxy J7 Prime supply is limited.
