Fans of the selfie will surely appreciate those front-facing LED flashes, and the prices aren’t bad either. The Samsung Galaxy J5 price in China is listed at 1,398 CNY, which comes out to around $225/â‚¬198. If you prefer something with a bit more punch, the Samsung Galaxy J7 price will only set you back 1,798 CNY or $289/â‚¬255. At the moment, there’s been no mention of an international release, but we expect that to change soon.
