Renders of the Galaxy J7 Duo appear, show 16:9 display, physical home buttons

Galaxy J7 Duo

Samsung’s J series goes up against Chinese offerings like the Redmi Note 5 Pro among others. One new upcoming handset in the series is the Galaxy J7 Duo. It isn’t called “Duo” without a reason, though. It should be Samsung’s answer to the dual camera on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Today, a leaked render shows us how the front of the device will appear.

Looking at the images, it is clear that the handset doesn’t sport an 18:9 aspect ratio and sticks with the old school big bezels. The handset might feature dual cameras but it is nowhere near the Note 5 Pro in terms of looks. The physical home button can be seen at the bottom with capacitive navigation buttons on either side. The selfie shooter is also quite visible on the top bezel of the phone.

We recently got a good idea of the capabilities of the handset with a leaked manual. According to that info, the handset has dual cameras. We don’t know the exact megapixel count but rumours say it is 13MP + 5MP arrangement. Also, the dual cameras will be equipped with Bokeh mode and Live stickers. Further, the Galaxy J7 Duo will come with a 5.0-inch HD display fueled by an Exynos 7885 SoC running Android Oreo on boot. It was also earlier revealed that the entry-level handset will come with Bixby albeit without a physical button.  Interestingly, the leaked manual showed pictures of a removable back. The contemporaries of the J7 Duo don’t have removable batteries, hence this is a weird addition.

With these almost official renders, we’d say the handset launch is clearly on the card. However, no official launch dates have yet been declared by Samsung.
