One of the most outstanding design choices is a new hardware button for which we do not know the objective as of yet.

After failing to achieve an in-display fingerprint reader, Samsung settled for one at the back of the handset, but rumours, which have now been confirmed, show that they did not repeat the mistake of past year, and actually moved the fingerprint reader away from the camera module.

For consumers who want more-more display, a better camera, and an even more powerful battery-the Galaxy J7 delivers.

The smartphone features a 5.5-inch HD (resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels) display - highly like to be an AMOLED as the predecessor also had one. Pricing and release date remain uncertain, but as the device is for the mid-range market, expect it to cost around $350 to $400. The model also shows off the rear design pattern of the smartphone, and we hope that it is true. The smartphones recently arrived to Spain and went on sale in the Philippines earlier today. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood is already antiquated, but the phone remains a good option in terms of performance nonetheless. Take a look below for more details. But when the handset is released, it could come with a feature that might surprise those that had expected a Galaxy S9 clone. The battery pack will have enough space, and you'll still get your dual camera array. The camera at the back sports 8 megapixels and a respectable aperture of f/1.9.

Perhaps the most interesting device we've reviewed in 2018, the Huawei P20 Pro is the first smartphone in the world to feature a triple-camera setup at the rear. The phone also comes with Bixby Assistant support as well.
