If Samsung’s existing lineup was not confusing enough, the Korean giant just released two new mid-range Android phones – Samsung Galaxy J5 and Samsung Galaxy J7.
Both these phones are visibly targeting youngsters with decent specs and three color choices, black, white and gold. However, the main feature here is the front-facing camera flash, which is sure to get noticed, especially by selfie addicts.
The overall specs of both phones are quite decent as well – the Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7 both have dual-sim support, 3G and 4G networks and Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. The rear camera sensor on both new models is 13 megapixels, while front facing cameras have 5 megapixel sensors.
Both phones also have 1.5 GBs of RAM, which is a good move by Samsung, especially when most mid-range phones out there have 1GB RAM. Similarly, both phones also have good processors, with the J5 housing a quad-core Snapdragon 410 (1.2 GHz) and the J7 having an octa-core Snapdragon 615 clocked at 1.4 and 1.0 GHz.
Design wise both phones are similar as well, except the J5 has a 5-inch display while the J7 has a 5.5-incher. Samsung has decided to outfit both with 720p displays, which is again a good move, making for decent phones.

Currently both phones are available in China, with the J5 going for 1,398 CNY, $225, and the J7 costing 1,798 CNY or $289.
What do you think about Samsung’s new mid-range phones? While we aren’t sure whether they will be available in global markets anytime soon, they’ve got decent specs and are priced reasonably as well.
