On Wednesday, Samsung unveiled two new Galaxy J series smartphones dubbed Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy J7 Pro. These are the J series’ first smartphones included with the digital payment app and Samsung Pay as add-ons. The other exciting feature is the social camera that allows immediate sharing of photos and videos from the camera window itself.
Sumit Walia, Director of Mobile Business, Samsung India at the launch said, “Considering the increasing market demand in the mid-segment, we have launched two new models, Galaxy J7 Max, and Galaxy J7 Pro. The superior specifications along with disruptive innovations of Samsung Pay and Social Camera on these devices will further consolidate our leadership position.”
The J7 Pro completely supports Samsung Pay, whereas the J7 Max uses a toned version of the service referred to as Samsung Pay Mini that allows users to pay with wallets such as Paytm via UPI.
The smartphone consists of a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display, combined with an Exynos 7870 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage, and storage can be expanded with the help of a microSD card.
