Samsung has refreshed the Galaxy J7 and Galaxy J5 for 2016. The phones retain the camera configuration from last year, offering 5MP cameras with LED flash at the front and 13MP cameras at the back.
The Galaxy J7 is the more powerful variant of the two, featuring a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 3GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD slot, LTE connectivity, NFC, and a 3300mAh battery.

In terms of specs, both phones are similar to what's on offer with the Galaxy A7 and A5, but as they're being offered at the budget segment, they eschew the premium metal-and-glass design of the Galaxy A series. Samsung's instead going with a metal frame and plastic back with the Galaxy J series, which looks far better when compared to last year's monotonous designs.
There's no mention of when we'll see the phones making their way outside of China, but with the Galaxy J series turning out to be a huge hit in India, Samsung is expected to make the devices available shortly. With the Galaxy J3 2016 also available in the U.S., it remains to be seen if Samsung launches the Galaxy J5 and J7 in the country.
