The highlighting feature of the new mid-tier smartphone is the dual rare camera setup. The rear camera in the J7 Duo has a 13MP+5MP setup, while the front camera houses an 8MP shooter. Both cameras come with f/1.9 aperture and a LED flash, making Galaxy J7 Duo an excellent smartphone for low light photography. The rear cameras also have the Live Focus mode, which is Samsung’s implementation of a portrait mode. In terms of video, the J7 Duo supports FHD video recording at 30fps. The front camera supports Face Unlock, Selfie Focus and also Beauty Mode.

In terms of the internals, the phone is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870 chipset which is manufactured in the 14 nm FinFET process.
