Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) was recently announced alongside the Galaxy J5 (2016). However, these two have yet to make their way to the United States.
Apparently, T-Mobile users can grab themselves a new Samsung Galaxy J7 (2015) from the company stores. There is even more as the carrier has also announced that those who were waiting for a new HTC 10 on the carrier can get one, and so can those looking after a new LG K10. Even though T-Mobile had remained silent on this matter, leaked images of the budget phone started showing up, something that has turned out to be true.
It had previously been rumored that T-Mobile will announce two new budget phones on May 18. Indeed, this materialized as the carrier came in with the LG K10 as well as last year’s Samsung Galaxy J7. In addition, the flagship-centric buyers can have their way as the HTC 10 is also on offer via this carrier for the first time since it was first unveiled over a month ago.
Samsung Galaxy J7 (2015)
To grab a new unlocked Samsung Galaxy J7 (2015) from T-Mobile, you only need $239.99. If this is too much for you to part with in an instance, there is room for paying just $10 monthly for a period of two years. This is a great deal for a smartphone that still offers some of the best performance specs out there, although it has basically been dwarfed by the release of a refreshed 2016 version.
With the budget Samsung Galaxy J7 (2015), you will be getting a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED panel with an HD resolution. Under the hood, the J7 packs an 8-core Snapdragon 615 SoC that is supported by a RAM of 2GB. As for the camera specs, you get a 13MP main camera and a 5MP secondary camera. The 2015 Galaxy J7 boasts an expandable onboard storage of 16GB, with the microSD card capable of accommodating up to 128GB of storage.
Since it’s a new release, T-Mobile’s J7 is powered by the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
As for the unlocked variant of the LG K10, you only need $164.99 to own one. Alternatively, T-Mobile offers a contract of 24 months with each demanding a mere $6.88. Being a budget phone, the K10 packs a decent 5.3-inch HD panel with a 720p resolution. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 410 SoC and a RAM of 1.5GB. As for the onboard memory, you get the same as Samsung Galaxy J7 (2015), which is 16GB. Even though there is room to expand via a microSD card, the LG K10 can only accommodate up to 32GB.
The main camera has an 8MP sensor while the selfie camera has a 5MP sensor. You also find Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.
Released on May 18, the HTC 10 has taken a month to come to T-Mobile. The unlocked variant of the 10 is available at $679.99, however, you can get the phone on a 24 months contract of $28.34 per month with no down payment. The deal is sweeter for those who buy the phone before May 24 as freebies will be included, among them HTC Ice View Case as well as a Rapid Charger. These two are priced at $85.
