Samsung has launched Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro this June.
The handset was launched in India and its visual appeal is undeniable. The design, specs, and expected price are acceptable.
The smartphone was launched alongside Galaxy J7 Max.

The 13MP rear and front-facing cameras will likely appeal to selfie lovers especially the front facing camera.
The f/1.7 aperture, autofocus, and LED flash should ensure that you take decent snaps.
Samsung says that the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro cameras are quick to launch and takes decent photos in low light conditions particularly with regard to details.
This we will have to wait and see. For now, we can and should reserve our verdict for when we test them under various conditions.
Samsung seems to be taking a break from Snapdragon and that is acceptable.
There are also other processors that are as powerful and the Exynos 7870 Octa chipset in Galaxy J7 Pro will perform like a champ (that if the processor’s specs are as awesome as they appear on paper).
The display 5.5-inch display that comes with 1080×1920 pixels should be good enough for multimedia and gaming purposes.
The 401ppi may also mean that the handset does not struggle much in direct sunlight.
These statements are subject to confirmation since what is on paper does not always reflect in real life.
However, the J-series has not really disappointed; hence, it is not naive to assume that J7 Pro will uphold the tradition.
J7 Pro’s Samsung Pay
J7 Pro also comes with Samsung Pay. This feature was launched earlier this year and it supports both NFC and MST technologies. These allow a user to make payments via a magnetic signal from the smartphone to the payment terminal’s card reader.
Samsung Pay is superior to Samsung Pay Mini since it eliminates the need for a debit or credit card. This means that users of selected smartphone can make contactless payments across various shops, restaurants, and other retail outlets.
All that they are required to do is open the app, proceed to select the card, touch the handset to the metal strip of the PoS machine, and finally authenticate the payment via the fingerprint sensor.
Most Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro features look good on paper. The specifications can be described as decent. We hope that these specs will give better performance and experiences.
The handset is only available in the Indian market but it should be released into other markets in coming months. Let’s wait for our turn.
