On the front, there is a 16-megapixel for selfie lovers with a F/1.9 aperture and a LED-flash that would help in getting pictures in low light.
Running Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box, the Galaxy J7+ features Samsung’a Bixby assistant minus the dedicated key. The J7+ also gets the live-focus mode, found on the Galaxy Note8 allowing for depth adjustment after capturing the image.
