Dual-cameras, Bixby assistant, 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, and many more for PhP19,990

Samsung wasn’t tired of releasing mid-range smartphones under a similar naming scheme and after it was announced on Thailand, it now comes in the Philippine shores.

It is also the next Samsung smartphone which has a new feature that was solely present on the Galaxy Note 8 (well, until now).

But the dual camera isn’t like the one on the Note 8

Although the Galaxy J7+ sports a dual camera setup, the second camera isn’t any special ultrawide or a telephoto lens. What we only have on the Galaxy J7+ are a standard 13-megapixel primary camera and a secondary 5-megapixel camera. The secondary camera is used for gathering depth information. This lets the user achieve Live Focus, just like the one on the Note 8. It lets you adjust the depth-of-field from minimal to maximum, providing a lovable bokeh effect, even before or after the shot was taken.

There’s also a 16-megapixel front-facing camera, with an aperture of F/1.9. It also supports an on-screen flash aside from the front dedicated LED flash.

Design and Specifications

The Samsung Galaxy J7+ has an all-metal unibody build, just like its other J7 predecessors. It has a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, and we all know how good these displays are. It also sports the Always on Display feature, which constantly shows the time and notifications without draining the battery too much – which is a notable feature on Samsung flagships and some midrange smartphones as well. It also comes with Samsung’s native assistant – Bixby.

Finally, it is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P20 octa-core processor, despite the fact that leaks have reported that it will be powered by an Exynos 7870. It also has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage via microSD card (dedicated slot).

It is now available at Samsung stores as well as other major retail stores for PhP19,990.
