The J7 variants will be powered by 3300 mAh batteries, which should be sufficient for daily activities – for the non-heavy users of course. The only between these two variants is found in their processors, the SM-J7108 is powered by a 1.6 GHz octa-core processor, while the SM-J7109 is powered by an unknown octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, and other four cores clocked at 1.2 GHz.
On the other hand, the Galaxy J5 sports a 5.2 inch 720 pixel display, a similar 13MP rear camera with laser autofocus and a 5MP front camera both with LED flash.
