Samsung is the leading company when it comes to global smartphone shipments and part of this is because it ships devices in just about every category.
One such device is Samsung Galaxy J Max, a huge device that, based on the current standards, can easily qualify as a smartphone, but in other instances, it also fits the bill as a tablet. The Galaxy J Max has a 7-inch TFT display screen with an HD resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The device came to life in the second half of 2016 and interestingly, the phablet has a 2014 Android Lollipop on board, which is the version it has had since its launch.
With this in mind, the current update that Samsung Galaxy J Max is receiving has nothing to do with a new operating system, rather, it is still based on the older Lollipop flavor. It carries software version T285YDDU0AQA2 and it is coming down as an OTA. As such, not all J Max units will be receiving the notification at the same time. But when it comes, make sure you are connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot before proceeding with the download. In addition, keep the battery unit at above 50% during the whole time of the upgrade.

Don’t expect any major addition to the software features of the Galaxy J Max courtesy of this update. Instead, you can expect things like stability and performance improvements, which are a usual thing with monthly security updates.
Other than the 7-inch display screen of the Galaxy J Max, you also come across low-end specs such as a Spreadtrum SC8830 processor paired with a RAM of 1.5GB and 8GB of expandable storage. The rear camera has an 8MP lens with AF, f/1.9 aperture and LED flash while the front comes with a 2MP lens that has f/2.2 aperture. To keep the lights on is a 4000mAh battery. You will find two SIM-card slots on the J Max alongside the dedicated microSD card slot. The tablet is available in gold and black color variants.
