Samsung Galaxy J7 Star Coming to Metro PCS (Metro By T-Mobile)

First NEW Phone Coming to Metro By T-Mobile (METRO PCS)


A new low-cost device is coming to Metro by T-Mobile hopefully in Oct. The US carrier’s website already shows the phone in its entirety – it’s the Samsung Galaxy J7 Star. Back in February, Samsung patented the Galaxy J3 Star and J7 Star names. The “Star” will be a suffix to follow the model name like “Prime”, “Pro”, “Ace”… you get the picture.

Samsung Galaxy J3 Star arrived to T-Mobile in late-June. In fact, like the J3 Star, the J7 Star supports T-Mobile’s Band 71 which lets subscribers access T-Mobile’s 600 MHz LTE band, one that offers longer range and better in-building signals. The J7 Star also comes with NFC on board, something not too common in the midrange space.

Other specs include a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display and 13MP main and selfie cameras. Powering it all is a 3,300 mAh battery and a 1.6GHz octa-core CPU. There are 32GB of internal storage for photos and apps and Wi-Fi ac is the standard here.

We still don’t know what the pricing will be, but i can imagine that if T-mobile is selling it currently for $250 with rebates metro might have it around the same price if not at $179-$199 Make sure you are subscribed to JGTechBLog to be notified of the official pricing and availability as soon as they come out!

It looks like it’s going to be 32gb instead of 16gb this time… awesome.

still 720p tho

Seems to be the same as the J7 V 2nd Gen that was just released at Verizon. Verizon sells that for $240.

No price yet, rumored to be under $250 from what I’ve seen.

That’s too much money when the LG Stylo 4 is better only cost $179
