With IDC numbers revealing a significant fall in sales of Samsung smartphones in Australia, between Q2 and Q4 2015 the new Galaxy S7 which is the best smartphone I have ever had in my hands could be the smartphone that pulls Samsung numbers back up.
Samsung has not mentioned or given any indication on whether Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be rolled out to the new J5 and J7 devices. At the moment, Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro has been unveiled to the Chinese market. The phone packs 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. However, you will now get 4GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, and a battery capacity increase of 1000 mAh, as it will now be 5000 mAh. Once the phone is on Bike Mode, it will automatically send a text in reply to callers as a way of telling them that they can try to call again at a later time.
The 2016 Galaxy J7 has a 5.5-inch super AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 1080p, an upgrade from the older version which came with a 720p screen.
Addressing the media, Senior Vice President, Samsung India Electronics, Asim Warsi said, “The phone is offering specific features built to suit the resonance in several developing markets where Samsung operates”. The mode also sends a pre-recorded message for the callers whenever the biker is riding, the message informs the caller that the person is now riding a bike. If you are calling the biker and your call is urgent, you’ll have to press 1 so that the call goes through. It is powered by a 1.2 GHz Quad core Processor with 1.5GB RAM. We also know Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro comes with 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, microUSB 2.0, and Global Positioning System with AGPS.
The phone is available in three colours-black, gold and silver. The handset measures 142.3mm x 71mm x 7.9mm and it weighs 138g. Trusted Reviews, awarding the device a full 10/10 score, wrote that the phone “raised the bar for every other Android device”, while TechRadar also awarded it top marks, calling the device “iterative perfection”.
