Samsung launched its budget smartphones Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016) in China last month, but it didn't utter a word on whether it will make the devices available to other markets. Now, the company has hinted that the handset will come to India soon.

The Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016) support pages have been spotted on Samsung India website, giving a clear hint that its release date in the country is not far off, reported Android Headlines. The devices were also spotted on Zauba, a website that keeps track of imports and exports in India.
