Is J7 made in Vietnam by Samsung original or not?

Is J7 made in Vietnam by Samsung original or not


Vietnam factory was opened by Samsung owing to cheaper labor, but the models released within the factory in Vietnam are original, which means that they should have the same warranty and quality. If you are still in doubt whether you have purchased an original smartphone, then just use the advice from the article to identify whether the smartphone is original. The best method described in the article is identifying the smartphone with Samsung Kies. You can also install Smart Switch, as it is the newest software from Samsung that should work with Marshmallow Android smartphones like J7 (2016).

I just ordered a j7 of eBay and discovered that it is a model made in China after ordering it. Will this make it not able to work in America or possibly some kind of fake?

I checked with my service before and can use j7 and ordered of eBay but then discovered it is a China model J7008. The item location is in California but seller is in Hong Kong and there was an added US at end of item description so believed was an American model but when checked model number I saw it was Chinese. Will this phone not work in US or have much worse service and what is the risk of it being a fake? I have not seen it brought up by anyone so far. I am not sure if maybe somewhere I haven't been to though.
