Samsung India has silently slashed the prices of its two mid-range devices- the Galaxy J7 Pro and the Galaxy J7 Max. The new price of the J7 Pro is Rs 18,900, while the J7 Max will now retail for Rs 14,900. Do make a note that these are new offline prices posted by Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom. As of this writing, the J7 Pro is retailing for Rs 19,900 and J7 Max for Rs 16,900 in Flipkart. And the phones are available at same prices on Amazon India and Samsung Shop as well. So maybe the new prices will reflect next week, but for now, we don’t have any information related to it.
Samsung introduced by the Galaxy J7 Pro and J7 Max back in June 2017 for Rs 20,900 and Rs 17,900 respectively. Back then, the J7 Pro was very well received by the tech community, but the J7 Max was touted as an overpriced product for the specifications it offered. And the highlight of both the phones is Samsung Pay support for the J7 Pro, and Samsung Pay Mini support for the J7 Max. Notably, the J7 Pro was the first Galaxy J series device to feature Samsung Pay. But now, the company has added Samsung Pay Mini feature to almost all the mid-range and budget Galaxy J and On series of phones.
Also, Mahesh Telecom tweeted that the J7 Pro is also available under Paytm Rs 2,000 cashback offer, but that’s only for the offline market. Sadly, the Galaxy J7 Max is not under the Paytm cashback offer.
