One of the most anticipated smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime, is now available in the United States. According to news, Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime will work on GSM networks in the US, which means T-Mobile, AT&T, Metro PCS, Cricket, and the like, and will support some US LTE bands such as 4G LTE bands 2 and 4, so you won’t be stuck on 3G only. Galaxy J7 Prime was launched first in China, released not long ago in a few Asian markets, and now it is hitting the U.S. sales.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Is Now On Sale In The U.S.
According to Phone Arena, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime can now be bought in the US via Amazon. The handset is offered unlocked for $295.98, and can be used on GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, but it's not compatible with Verizon and Sprint. Right now, the device is available only in black, and we don't know when, or if other color variants will be launched in the US.
Specs, Price and Updates
While this is certainly not Samsung’s most high-end phone, it does come with some rather respectable hardware specifications considering the price, which begins with features like an octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage that’s expandable with support up to 256GB, and a fingerprint sensor for unlocking the device.
As per Android Headlines, just last year these would have been specs that would normally have been reserved for devices in the higher mid-tier and the top-tier ranges, but Samsung is offering them on the Galaxy J7 Prime which is now available for under $290.
As described by SoftPedia, the Galaxy J7 Prime is a decent mid-range smartphone that ships with the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system right out of the box. The phone sports a 5.5-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution. Despite the fact that it's a mid-range handset, the Galaxy J7 Prime features a full metal body, so you're guaranteed to have that nice premium feel exclusive to flagship smartphones.
