Samsung Galaxy J7+ Price in the Philippines is Php 19,990, Officially Released!

Earlier today - October 7, 2017, one of our trusted and reliable TechPinas Correspondents excitedly messaged me on Facebook and told me that he saw an interesting new Galaxy smartphone model at MemoXpress while he was walking around SM North EDSA CyberZone.

He then went on to send me photos of the said handset -- and I was shocked with what I saw.


Apparently, Samsung Mobile Philippines has just quietly made their all-new Samsung Galaxy J7+ midrange handset available locally -- so that means, you can already head on to your favorite authorized retailer to get hold of the device.


Flaunting a 5.5-inch Full HD SuperAMOLED display panel that's protected by scratch-resistant 2.5D Curved Glass, the handsome Samsung Galaxy J7+ is the first mid-level device from the Korean Giant to have a Dual Camera module at the back, a feature that the company currently only offers via the flagship-level Samsung Galaxy Note8.


I would like to give credit to TP Correspondent Charles Quiachon for letting us know that Galaxy J7+ is now available in the Philippines and for sending us all these photos. Thanks, Charles!

The Galaxy J7+'s "Professional Dual Camera" is made of up 13 MegaPixel optic plus a secondary 5 MP lens that work together to deliver shallow depth of field or bokeh effect, where the background of the photo's subject is beautifully blurred. Samsung calls this "LiveFocus".

But for those who like snapping photos of their faces just as much as shooting that's in front of the rear camera, the smartphone also has a 16 MegaPixel front-facing selfie camera, which benefits from Samsung's own Beauty Mode that evens out the user's skintone and highlights great facial features in every photo -- making them ready for instant sharing on Facebook or Instagram.


Inside Galaxy J7+'s handsome aluminum shell, the device runs its Grace-UI-skinned Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system with a 2.39GHz Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P20 Processor that's complemented by 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage that can easily be expanded using the hybrid secondary nanoSIM slot. This smartphone is powered by a non-removable 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery pack that - I think - should be able to deliver more or less a whole day of uptime with regular use.

For added security and privary, this Dual SIM 4G-LTE enabled model has a Fingerprint Scanner in front, integrated with the Home Button below the display. You also use this sensor to quickly unlock the device and to make app purchases with just a touch of a finger.

The phone's microUSB 2.0 port and 3.5mm combo jack are both located at the rear.

The Samsung Galaxy J7+ color variant that Charles saw at MemoXpress is the classic Champagne Gold version -- but the handset should be also available in Black and Rose Gold.


In some stores, the handset comes bundled with a free Smart LTE Prepaid SIM card that gets you free data for a limited period and allows you to enjoy the leading mobile services of the MVP company, which is currently the largest network in the country.

So is this particular Android smartphone model right for you? Well, if you're a big Samsung fan and you've always wanted to see for yourself the benefits of a Dual Rear Camera set-up but you're not keen on getting an ultra-expensive high-end device, this model should be great for you. However, if you're more after getting the best technical specifications - particularly internal storage, screen size, and battery capacity - for your money, I would advise you to wait a few more weeks to see what other brands have to offer in this price bracket, compare the devices, then make your decision.
