Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 Price, Official Specs, and Press Photos

The Galaxy J-Series remains to be one of the most popular handset lines here in the Philippines -- so I'm sure many of you would be interested in this update.

The Korean Giant has quietly listed the 2017 version of the popular Samsung Galaxy J5 for pre-order at online stores in Germany, which could very well mean that the handset is on its way to being released in other key territories around the world -- mostly likely, including our country.

Flaunting a revamped look and a real metal shell with rounded sides and corners, the Samsung Galaxy J5 currently sells for 279 Euros in the above-mentioned market, which is more or less the same the SRP of its predecessors upon launch.

Notice the U-shaped antenna bands at the back of the device as well as the oblong black camera module. I believe these are the distinguishing design elements of this model.

As for the device's key specs, Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 sports a near-bezel-less 5.2-inch 1280 x 720 pixels SuperAMOLED HD display, a 13 MegaPixel camera at the back with LED flash, another 13 MegaPixel camera in front with Beauty Mode for snapping selfies you can instantly share on social media sites, and a non-removable 3,000 mAh battery pack, which is notably large given the size of the display.

Inside, SGJ5 2017 runs its TouchWiz-flavored Android 7.0 Nougat operating system with a 64-Bit Octa Core 1.6 GHz ARM Cortex A53 and Mali T830 based Exynos 7870 processor, has 2GB of RAM for multitasking, and comes with 16GB of expandable storage. I wish it had more RAM and ROM - considering what's under the hood of competing smartphones in this price category - but it is what it is.

As of writing, Samsung Mobile Philippines has yet to availability of this Dual SIM 4G-enabled new model -- so we don't have word yet on its official SRP as well as exact release date in our country. Nonetheless, I believe that the Galaxy J5 2017 will be launched here just in time for back-to-school season or within June or July 2017 with price tag in the range of Php 15,500 to Php 16,500.

Is this smartphone model right for you? Frankly, for that amount of money, you can already buy a handset from another phone company with far better technical specifications - one of which is the OPPO F3. However, if you're big fan of Samsung and your eyes are fixed only on this brand, I believe that the Galaxy J5 2017 should still be able to deliver a decent overall mobile experience given its price.
