Samsung continues their march concerning mid-range devices with the 2016 versions of the Samsung Galaxy J5 as well as the Samsung Galaxy J7, where these two have already appeared on the company’s official Chinese website. Taking over from last year’s models, these two new handsets under the J Series will arrive with 5MP front-facing cameras with LED flashes, ensuring that selfie lovers would fall for them right from the get go.
Apart from that, both of them will also arrive with 13MP shooters that too, will be accompanied by LED flashes.
