Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo appears with dual camera, AMOLED display

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo quietly appeared on the company’s Indian website earlier – perhaps prematurely, as the link to the page has already been taken down. Its specs and features indicate that we’re dealing with a low-priced smartphone, but also one with a trick or two up its sleeve.
