Samsung launches Galaxy J7 Pro and Galaxy J7 Max in India running Android 7.0 Nougat

Samsung, at an event earlier today, officially announced the launch of its two new mid-range Android smartphones for the Indian market. Called the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro and the Galaxy J7 Max, the smartphones are a new addition to the company's already existing Galaxy J series of devices. Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro is a new name to the Galaxy J7 (2017), whereas the Galaxy J7 Max is newly announced.

According to Samsung, the Galaxy J7 Max and the Galaxy J7 Pro will be available in India for a price of Rs. 17,900 and Rs. 20,900 respectively. Bot the smartphone will be coming out in Black and Gold colors. The Galaxy J7 Max will be available across retail stores starting June 20, 2017, while the Galaxy J7 Pro will be available starting mid-July.


Both, the Galaxy J7 Pro and the J7 Max have a metal unibody design and comes with some extra software features such as Ultra Data Saving, S bike mode, and S Power Planning. Samsung has also stuffed both the devices with more innovative features, like Samsung Pay and Social Camera.

Talking of Samsung's payment innovation first, the Galaxy J7 Pro will support the Samsung Pay while the Galaxy J7 Max will come with Samsung Pay Mini. Using Samsung Pay, customers can turn their smartphone into a wallet, storing credit and debit cards, and also use Paytm and Unified Payments Interface (UPI) and pay on the go by just tapping the phone on the Point of Sale (PoS) machine.
Whereas the Samsung Pay Mini is designed specifically for UPI and e-wallets like Paytm. You can't make on the go payments or store credit and debits cards inside Pay Mini, as it does not support NFC, which is required for tap and pay service. Samsung notes that the Pay Mini will be initially available on the Galaxy J7 Max and will be made available on select existing Galaxy J-series devices shortly.

Social Camera, on the other hand, allows users to use their smartphone camera for doing instant activities like instant sharing and editing. The instant sharing feature allows pinning favorite contacts and social media within the camera app to help users share their camera moments as they click. Users can instantly edit the images by applying live filters or live stickers before sharing them on social media using the camera app.
