The Galaxy J7 Pro and Galaxy J7 Max were launched at Rs 20,900 and Rs 17,900 respectively, in June last year. Both smartphones are among the company's most popular mid-range devices and feature a metal unibody-design and a fingerprint scanner embedded into the Home Button.

The Galaxy J7 Pro (Quick Review), which is the top-end model in Samsung's J-series portfolio, comes with Samsung Pay integration. The feature allows you to make payments using the phone's built-in NFC feature. The Galaxy J7 Max, as the name suggests packs a large 5.7-inch display and comes loaded with Samsung Pay Mini, a toned-down payments feature that does not rely on NFC support.

The Galaxy J7 Pro and the Galaxy J7 Max are available in gold and black color options.
