At a time when we were kind of getting accustomed with the large 6.4-inch display on the Xiaomi Mi Max, Samsung played the spoilsport by launching the Galaxy J Max, a device with a mammoth 7-inch display. Samsung has launched both the Galaxy J Max and the Galaxy J2 at an event in Bengaluru. The J Max had been subjected to a couple of leaks and now that the device has been launched we will finally be able to check out the specifications and the features.
The 7-inch HD WXGA display is the primary highlight of the Galaxy J Max. The device draws its power from a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and paired with a 1.5GB of RAM. On the storage front, the J Max offers 8GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot that can accommodate up to 200GB. Despite the huge form factor, the J Max is considerable slim at 8.7mm. The device features an 8-Megapixel primary sensor along with a 2-Megapixel secondary sensor.
As we can deduce the J Max comfortably gate crashes into the tablet category and it was, in fact, Samsung’s very own Galaxy Tab 3 that came equipped with a 7-inch TFT display. Furthermore, the specifications are a bit of a letdown especially when we put it against the Mi Max but again we would be able to decide on this only after using the device. We also harbour a feeling that the 108.8mm of width is something that would strain users hands while making calls, a drawback that the tablets themselves faced.
Samsung Galaxy J Max is priced at Rs 13,400 and will feature connectivity options including Dual-SIM and 4G LTE. The Galaxy J Max will be available in Black and Gold colour option and will be backed by a 4000mAh battery. Samsung has also roped in Airtel and will be offering a double data benefit plan worth up to Rs 4,500 for 6-months. The Galaxy J Max will be available across multiple sales channels starting from end of this month.
