samsung galaxy j7 primeAbout a week ago, we heard rumors that Samsung had a higher version of the Galaxy J7 in the works called the Galaxy J7 Prime. It turns out the rumors were right as Samsung has officially taken the wraps off the phone, although we suppose the only downside here is that the handset appears to be exclusive to Vietnam for now.

However for those who are curious, the Galaxy J7 Prime is a slightly higher-end version of the Galaxy J7 that was actually launched earlier this year. For starters we’ll be looking at an increase in display resolution from 720p, to Full HD 1080p. It will also see an increase in base storage from 16GB to 32GB, but it will also retain its expandable memory so don’t worry, you’ll still be able to add on to that.

RAM has also seen an increase from 2GB to 3GB, and let’s not forget the addition of a fingerprint sensor which we’re sure is a welcome feature, and to top it off, a metal body instead of plastic. Other than that, we’re still looking at the same Exynos 7870 chipset with a 3,300mAh battery, a 13MP rear-facing camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, and will run on Android Marshmallow.

In terms of pricing, the Galaxy J7 Prime is set at around $280 but like we said, it seems to be exclusive to Vietnam for now and there is no word on whether Samsung will eventually bring it to other markets.
