Samsung is all set to reveal the Galaxy J7 Duo for Indian markets. The Smartphone is expected target Sub 20,000 price segment.

As you can see in the below image, which was captured during sales training session, the J7 Duo features Super AMOLED display, dual rear cameras, latest Oreo Operating System and 4G capabilities.

With the J7 Duo, you'll get a 5.5" Super Amoled display with old 16:9 ratio, Dual 13 MP + 5 MP setup just like the Galaxy C7 2017, but with f/1.9 aperture on the main (13MP) sensor. It will be powered by Exynos 7870 CPU which is quite old, 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM which can be expended by microSd Card, and a 3000mAh battery.

The specs seems quite disappointing, but the good news is the J7 Duo will have the latest Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung's Experience 9.0 UI. There's no information on the pricing, however, as usual, Samsung is expected to price it way more than its actual value. Thoughts?

Samsung Galaxy J7 2018 Specs Supposedly Leaked
It would appear that specs concering the Samsung Galaxy J7 2018 have been leaked. According to the latest FCC listing, the J7 2018, set for release some time in Q2, will sport a 5.5" 16:9 1920 x 1080 display, a hexa-core Exynos 7885 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of Internal Storage, and Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung's Experience UI.

The Exynos 7885 looks like an upgrade over the Samsung's Exynos 7870 with two high-performance cores based on Cortex-A73 and four efficient cores based on Cortex-A53.

The J7 2018 will have two variants (SM-J720M/DS and SM-J720M), the only difference will be the support of its SIM. Asiant market will get Dual SIM while the US and few other countries would get Single SIM model.

While the specs sound decent enough for last year's standard, I will remain hesitant about that 16:9 Screen. Thoughts?
