Samsung Galaxy Note 7 might be stealing the show at the moment, but this hasn’t stopped Samsung from working on other products as well.
Just recently, the ever-reliable leaker Evan Blass came out with news that the Korean tech giant is yet on another process of making a huge phablet named Samsung Galaxy J Max. As of now, this phone has become a reality and it also becomes the 13th edition of the Galaxy J series – a series that was launched a year ago.
Apparently, there is a really good reason why Samsung is calling this phone the Galaxy J Max. This is because the handset comes with a 7-inch display size. One would now be asking, what will Samsung pack under the hood of this huge smartphone-tablet device?
One thing that is for sure is that the Galaxy J Max has the same design language as the rest of the Galaxy J series. Under the hood of the 7-inch Super AMOLED 720p display screen is a quad-core processor clocked at a speed of 1.5GHz. This processor is paired with a RAM of 1.5GB and there is an internal storage of 16GB. Just like many other Samsung handsets, there is room for microSD card expansion. You get an 8MP sensor on the rear that comes with OIS on board.
The front part has a 2MP selfie camera and the huge display is kept alive by an even bigger 4000mAh battery unit. The phone part of this smartphone-tablet hybrid is that it comes with two SIM card slots and support for 4G LTE connectivity. One downside of the Galaxy J Max is that it ships with the older Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, with no details of whether or not it will receive the newer Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the newest Android 7.0 Nougat. You also come across the S Bike mode that came along with the Galaxy J3.
To grab yourself a new Samsung Galaxy J Max, you’ll need to part with Rs. 13,400, which is about $200. Samsung will reportedly launch the phablet on July 27.
