Samsung introduced dual cameras with the Galaxy Note 8, but it seems like the configuration will not be limited to the high-end segment. A leak from last week showed off the Galaxy J7+, an upgraded variant of the J7 with dual cameras at the back.
Like the Galaxy J7, the J7+ will feature a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display, an octa-core chipset clocked at 2.39 GHz, full metal unibody design, Dual SIM card slots, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, and 3000mAh battery. The interesting feature is the dual camera setup at the back. The phone will feature a 13MP primary shooter combined with a 5MP secondary lens. Round the front, there’s a 16MP camera.
The Galaxy J7+ will be available in Thailand initially, and live photos of the phone have been leaked on Weibo already. The images show off a device that’s similar in design to the J7, but with the newer camera configuration at the back. The Galaxy Note 8 offers a wide-angle lens paired with a telephoto lens for 2x optical zoom, but the Galaxy J7+ may have a different setup.
With several manufacturers switching to dual cameras at the back, it’s no wonder that Samsung is also joining in. Samsung sells tens of millions of Galaxy J phones around the world, and the series is the main focus in the budget segment. The Galaxy J7 has a lot of strong points, mainly the metal chassis and the AMOLED panel, and the addition of dual rear cameras turn it into an even better device.
Right now, it seems like the J7+ will be available in Thailand, but Samsung will be looking to bring the phone to other markets. There is no information on how much the phone will cost, but it shouldn’t be a lot higher than the standard version of the Galaxy J7.
