Samsung may face hurdles in meeting stronger than expected demand for the new smartphones. According to a PhoneDog report, there would not be any problem if the company will combine the Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy Note phones soon.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Perx has an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera.

Because of this new design, there's no official Samsung branding to be seen, but considering the design similarities, it would be fair to assume this is a Samsung device.

The Galaxy J7 Perx carries a full retail price of $265 at Sprint, but you can get the handset on a 24-month installment plan by paying $11 every month. Samsung has made a decision to celebrate the occasion by commissioning Landscape Photographer of the Year Matthew Cattell to capture some of the most breath-taking views from the list on camera.

The PR disaster allowed Apple, which rolled out the iPhone 7 in September, to edge past Samsung and claim a 20.3% share of the worldwide smartphone market.

It's clear Samsung wanted to move the fingerprint sensor under the screen for the Galaxy S8, but didn't have enough time to make it work.
