Samsung‘s Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) telephones appeared on a an official website for its “Kids Mode” app, noticed by SamMobile. The web site’s in Korean, however the telephone names in English are clear, and are nonetheless dwell on the web site at the time this was written (together with the J7 Pop and J7 Max). The solely factor is, Samsung has but to announce both of those two telephones.
The Galaxy J series is Samsung’s tackle super-affordable Android smartphones. While super-premium units suck up much more consideration, lower-end telephones are vital for phonemakers like Nokia and Motorola — and sure, Samsung too — to make their names in rising markets and different locations the place low costs matter. The J collection is strictly the type of telephone we’d see selecting up Google’s new Android Go software.
Samsung has already quietly launched the Galaxy J3 (2017) earlier in May, a follow-up to an entry-level telephone that was broadly offered in the US and elsewhere. The new J3 offers us a sign of the J collection’ low worth: $180, or about £140 and AU$241, transformed.
The new J3 for 2017 has entry-level specs to match, like a 5-inch HD show, 2,600mAh battery, and 5-megapixel rear digicam.
We know loads much less about the upcoming J5 or J7 (apart from that they will be Kids Mode appropriate) but when last year’s versions are any indicator, they may very well be a step up from the Galaxy J3 when it comes to specs, dimension and worth — although nonetheless completely finances buys.
Samsung declined to remark.
