Unlike the Galaxy A family, last year’s J series managed to easily set itself apart from Samsung’s flagship models, with appreciably lower-end specs, inferior build materials and palatable price tags. As a consequence of especially that last part, the first-gen J5 and J7 achieved sleeper hit status, helping the OEM retain its domination over all other smartphone manufacturers even in emerging markets.

The two’s somewhat unexpected success also warranted premature sequels, unveiled in China roughly three weeks back. On the old continent however, Samsung seems to not be making a lot of fuss about the launch of the Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016), the latter quietly going on sale in Spain earlier today.

The upper mid-range 5.5-incher costs €300 ($340) unlocked, but unfortunately, downgrades the Chinese variant’s Full HD screen to 720p resolution, discarding a full gig of RAM from the 3GB original count as well.

Still, the European SM-J710 bumps up its predecessor’s construction quality by adding a metal frame into the plastic equation, improves battery capacity to 3,300 mAh, packs an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor, measures 7.8mm in overall thickness, and caters to shutterbugs with respectable 13 and 5MP LED flash-endowed cameras.

It remains to be seen what other EU countries will receive the Galaxy J7 (2016), with France and Italy at the very least slated for J5 (2016) rollouts before long. Samsung’s regional portals in both lands contain references to the SM-J510, sadly with no pricing or specification details attached.
