by Karthik Iyer 7

The South Korean smartphone brand, Samsung had earlier launched the 7-inch Galaxy J Max along with the Galaxy J2 2016 in India. Today, the company had relaunched the same tablet as Galaxy Tab J in Taiwan. The Galaxy J Max offers Dual-SIM capabilities with 4G LTE connectivity with VoLTE support. It is priced at NT$ 5,990 (approx Rs. 12,500) in Taiwan and in India, it came with a price tag of Rs. 13,400.

Earlier – The Galaxy J Max features a 7-inch WXGA TFT LCD Screen with a resolution of 1280 X 800. The device is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM and an expandable storage upto 200GB. It comes with a 4,000 mAh battery. On the camera side, we have an 8-megapixel rear facing camera and a 2-megapixel front facing selfie shooter. The Galaxy J Max will be powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. The device is 8.7 mm in thickness and has a light-weight modern design, and it will be available in black and gold color options.

The Galaxy J Max comes loaded with ‘Make for India’ innovations such as S bike mode and Ultra Data Saving mode. S bike mode is essentially a mode which puts the smartphone in a state where only important calls are passed through for safe riding. The ‘Ultra Data Saving’ (UDS) mode provides up to 50% mobile data savings by blocking unnecessary background applications from consuming data. It also has a proprietary data compression technology, which ensures the most cost-efficient 4G experience. This device will directly compete with the recently launched Xiaomi Mi Max phablet by the company.

The Xiaomi Mi Max also featured a huge 6.44″ display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and is available in variants with different processor options. It comes with 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB/128GB internal storage options which are expandable via a microSD up to a 128GB. It packs a 4,850 mAh battery and comes with the latest and greatest Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. With that being said, the Galaxy J Max will be available to purchase by the end of July, and as mentioned before, it will be priced at Rs. 13,400.

    No doubt,Specs on Xiaomi Max looks better but both are huge to use it as a smartphone,Besides 4000mAh battery and LCD display on a 7″ phablet doesn’t look nice to battery life otherwise some good optimization has to be done.
