Samsung originally launched the Galaxy J7 Nxt with 2GB RAM and 16GB onboard memory, and charged Rs 11,490 for it.
But increasing competition from Xiaomi and other Chinese manufactures offering smartphones with more RAM and storage at the same price point (or even cheaper) has prompted the South Korean tech-giant to launch a variant with more RAM and larger storage.
A 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant of the Galaxy J7 Nxt has quietly been listed by Samsung on its online store in India for Rs 12,990. The variant is currently out of stock on shop.samsung.com, but is available for purchase at offline stores across the country, according to a leading offline retailer.
The product description on Samsung's official site shows that apart from the extra RAM and internal storage, there's absolutely nothing different in the new variant.
Meanwhile, the 2GB RAM variant with 16GB storage has been listed for a discounted price of Rs 10,490.
