Samsung has announced its latest Galaxy J series of smartphones in India- the Galaxy J7 Pro and the Galaxy J7 Max. The Galaxy J7 Pro is priced at Rs. 20,900, whereas the Galaxy J7 Max costs Rs. 17,900 in the country. The J7 Max will be available for purchase from June 20, whereas the J7 Pro will be up for sale from mid-July.
These two new mid-range Samsung smartphones come with support for Samsung Pay. The J7 Pro has the complete Samsung Pay support, whereas the J7 Max uses a toned version of the service called Samsung Pay Mini. Apparently, the Samsung Pay Mini is the same service, but it allows you to pay with wallets such as Paytm and via UPI. The Pay Mini doesn’t require NFC support, and it will run on smartphones with minimum Android Lollipop and a 720p display. Moreover, you can’t use the Samsung Pay Mini with swiping machines.
If you recall, Samsung, a few days back announced the Galaxy J7 (2017) in Europe and the same smartphone had launched today in India as Galaxy J7 Pro. It features the same specifications as the Galaxy J7 (2017). The Galaxy J7 Max spotted on a benchmark site some weeks ago, and India is the first country to see it.
Here are the complete details about the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro and Galaxy J7 Max launched moments ago.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro
As I mentioned earlier, the J7 Pro is the Galaxy J7 (2017) in the European market. The smartphone flaunts a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, clubbed with an Exynos 7870 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. The storage can be expanded with the help of a microSD card.
The J7 Pro comes with a 13MP rear camera with f/1.9 aperture, and dual-tone LED flash. Up front, it has a 13MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls. Samsung is betting big on the rear camera of the phone saying it as a ‘Social Camera’ with Augmented Reality capabilities. The smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat based TouchWiz UI and is armed with a 3600mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Max
The Galaxy J7 Max is another smartphone launched today with mid-range specifications. As the name itself suggests, the J7 Max comes with a massive 5.7-inch Full HD TFT screen. Sadly, it’s not an AMOLED panel like other Samsung smartphones. Samsung has added the Smart Glow feature, seen on the Galaxy J2 (2016), which blinks whenever a notification arrives.
At the heart of the J7 Max is a MediaTek P20 chipset, clubbed with an octa-core CPU, which works in tandem with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The onboard storage is expandable via a microSD card. The J7 Max uses the same 13MP rear and front cameras like the J7 Pro. It also runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and has a beefy 3300mAh battery on board.
Connectivity options in both the phones include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The J7 Pro has a USB Type-C port, and it’s an IP54 certified smartphone with splash resistant capabilities.
