Samsung is the company every new smartphone maker wants to be. It has a massive reach across the globe and unchallenged dominance in markets such as India. The South Korean tech giant is constantly put up with new Chinese brands, but it refuses to let go of its top spot by making sure its consumers have a complete portfolio of smartphones in any price range.
Expanding its smartphone portfolio in India, Samsung on Wednesday launched two new phones in its popular J series. Samsung Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy J7 Pro come to the rescue of mid-range smartphone shoppers with some unique elements only Samsung could score.
In terms of bagging unique features, Samsung Galaxy J7 Max begs our attention. The handset is the first to come with Samsung's latest payment solution, Pay Mini, which is designed to work with all Android smartphones with HD display and software running Android 5.0 Lollipop and above. Samsung Pay Mini doesn't require smartphones with NFC and supports payments via UPI and mobile wallets like Paytm, making it easier to use than Samsung Pay.
While this new feature makes the Galaxy J7 Max relevant, it has specifications to complete your need for a reliable smartphone. It boasts a 5.7-inch Full HD TFT display, 13MP front and rear snappers with LED flash, and offers Smart Glow 2.0, which glows around the rear camera to notify of unread notifications.
The Galaxy J7 Max is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6757V processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB expandable storage, and a 3,300mAh battery. The handset runs Android Nougat and supports 4G VoLTE, dual SIM cards and other standard connectivity options.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Max will be available in stores starting June 20. The handset is priced at Rs. 17,900 and comes in gold and black colour options.
Samsung didn't just stop at that. The tech giant also launched Galaxy J7 Pro with slightly different features. The Galaxy J7 Pro is priced at Rs. 20,900 and will be available in stores mid-July onwards.
In terms of specifications, the Galaxy J7 Pro sports a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB expandable storage and a 3,600mAh battery. Like the Galaxy J7 Max, the J7 Pro also sports 13MP front and rear snappers.
The handset additionally boasts a fingerprint scanner embedded within the home button and also has IP54 splash resistance certification. Android 7.0 Nougat with Samsung's custom UI is standard for this phone as well.
