That's an additional 120 million crap by next year.
That's bad.

nkwama, 10 Jan 2017Yes 2017 A series are best. Agreed. AMOLEDs IP certified Best ... moreYeah, but the problem is, chinese samrtphone only sell online and hard to get in other countries. They dont have offline stores and many people likes to feel their phone first before buying it.

AnonD-480266, 09 Jan 2017Be careful when buying J phones. I went to buy J7. But I saw ... moreWhy would they give you a refund as it was clearly your fault for not doing your research first?

Here in Nigeria, the J series is very popular. Particularly the J5 and J7.

I'm not a fan though. Apart from the A and S series, I'm basically turned off by the 'genericness' of Samsung's lower end offerings.

The 100 million J phones will be sold in India. The 20 million A phones in China.

It's reasonable, especially since they're targeting chinese and indian markets for their mid-range to low-end units. Europe is low priority, justifiably. US will be prime for flagships. Ambitious, yes, but impossible, certainly not.

AnonD-480266, 09 Jan 2017Be careful when buying J phones. I went to buy J7. But I saw ... moreThat's your fault, it's already stated in the specification in gsmarena and many other websites that j series not using amoled.
So, this is not the company fault, but yours

Why not using internet to do research before you buy a thing

100 million suckers!! Samsung will be laughing all the way to the bank.

Samsung.With your reputation now.Your should focus on your prices to achieve this interesting goal you have mentioned there to make up for the models you released prvious year.With A5 2017 and it's mid range chip set ad 450 euroes price.Hardly.

AnonD-480266, 09 Jan 2017Be careful when buying J phones. I went to buy J7. But I saw ... moreCareful ? About what ? Gsm arena,millions of sites,millions of videos said it has a TFT screen.You should have seen this site before buying your phone and do a small research about it.Plus you should have asked the sellers there as well.Samsung doesn't hide anything and anyone with small intelligence can see what their phones have.
Literally it's stupid to say:I bought this but Samsung/other company scammed me about it.When the internet in 2017 is spammed with DETAILED info about the product.

What's the point of buying mid-range or low-range phones? There are many features that are exclusive only for flagship phones. Also, they always have better support from developers and compatibility with everything. Old flagship phones are always better than new mid-range or new low-range phones. They have similar prices. And if you buy an used old flagship phone, it may even be cheaper.

which brings us to .... where are the rumors about the J7 (2017) series? The silence is nerve wracking.
