As been known in the mobile market that the big screen phone is taken control of atmosphere, phones of screen lesser than 5.0 are moving to extension, in this wise, every mobile producing company make sure to follow the trending market.

Samsung however, has no problem with this because before the big screen becomes the norms they have released a 5.3 screen phone, the great galaxy note in 2011.

However for those that fancy phones with bigger screen, Samsung has it for every man according to their needs and pocket.


I don’t know why Samsung decide that most of their previous device name are been repeated with year tag to differentiate them. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) and now the J7 (2017) is a good example of this.

In June 2015, the original Samsung Galaxy J7 led was launched and later J7 Prime (2016) with upgraded specifications due to its popularity. And now, the 2017 model J7 prex or J7V has arrived with more alluring and pleasing specifications.

According to rumour which says in March, 2017, Samsung will launch a new J7 model smartphone with a 5.5 screen size but recently in May 2017 the J7 was silently released under a different name on Verizon and Sprint, the reason for this am not sure but I hope it’s good enough.

This newly released Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) is one of the best phones ever produced by Samsung featuring eye-catching design and great trending specifications in the mobile market.
