The dual SIM phone is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and features a fingerprint sensor on the home button in front. The battery capacity of the device is pegged at 3300 mAh. Connectivity options on Galaxy J7 Prime include Bluetooth, GPRS / EDGE, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi and a microUSB port.
Samsung has been hard at work in IFA 2016 taking place in Berlin, Germany. It just introduced two smartwatches today, the Gear S3 Frontier and the Gear S3 Classic. Both the smartwatches sport a round dial and claim a battery life of 4 days. This has been a particularly good year for Samsung in terms of sales of their flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. The very recently introduced Galaxy Note 7 has had a number of battery explosions though and might end up being a problem for Samsung since the Note series directly competes with Apple's larger sized iPhone Plus. And with Apple just a week away from introducing this year's iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung needs to get its act right and do something about the impending dangers with Galaxy Note 7 smartphones.
