Samsung, the Korean tech giant has added another smartphone to their mid-range line-up making it available to Pakistani customers. This is Samsung Galaxy J7 Core (known as J7 Nxt in international markets).


Like other members of the mid-range family already available in market, the Galaxy J7 Core also features the similar design with a home button below the screen flanked by back and recent apps buttons. The smartphone features a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED 720p (1280 x 720) resolution display. The icons may appear pixelated when viewed up close however the colors are punchy with plenty of contrast.

The J7 Core is a dual SIM supported handset by default and comes with Android 7.0 Nougat along with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. On the inside, the phone is powered by Samsung’s own 1.6 Ghz Exynos 7870 octa chipset. It comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage having an option of a microSD card slot to further expand the memory.


On the camera front, the J7 Core is equipped with a 13 MP primary camera on the back with autofocus and an LED flash. However, up front is a 5 MP shooter with another LED flash for those night time selfies.

The Galaxy J7 Core comes with a 3,000 mAh battery that lacks the fast charging option. You might feel somehow problematic for charging up the phone (it may take 2 hours or more) however the phone may last you throughout a day on an average use.
