As this week Samsung officially launched Galaxy J7 Duo which comes with Dual Camera Setup on the rear side. This Camera Setup will be able to take those portrait shots, as seen in common. Other specs still look like a 2016 mid-range smartphone, except the AMOLED display, 2.5D glass, and Android Oreo out of the box. For detailed coverage on this news Click Here.
