Samsung has launched another smartphone, dubbed as theGalaxy Wide2, in its home country just recently. The new device served as the successor of the Galaxy Wide that was announced way back July 2016. It carries the model number SM-J727S which suggests that it might be the so-called Galaxy J7 (2017) slated to be available in other markets outside Korea soon. At first, the handset was not listed on Samsung's official website but it is expected to be available via online in the near future.
Regarding the specs, the Galaxy Wide2 sports a 5.5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and 2.5D curved glass on top. Under the hood, it ships with an unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz on board. It packs 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal flash memory which can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card. Going to the optics, the phone features a 13-megapixel rear snapper with LED flash and an aperture of f/1.9. Up front, there is a 5-megapixel camera for shooting selfies. It runs an Android 7.0 Nougat as its operating system out-of-the-box. The newest Samsung handset is backed up by a 3300mAh battery to keep the lights on. It packs several connectivity options including 4G LTE with VoLTE, 3G, GPS, and Bluetooth. It has a body measurement of 151.5 x 76.4 x 8.6mm and weighs 170 grams.
The Samsung Galaxy Wide2 can be purchased at SK Telecom for KRW 297,000 (PHP 13,238 as of May 25 ), which is equivalent to USD 265 .
