As we reported earlier, Samsung has officially launched the two new mid-range smartphones called Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy J7 Pro today in India. After launching the Galaxy J7 2016 in mid-2016, the company came up with the Galaxy J7 Prime with major improvements like metal body and fingerprint sensor. Now in 2017, Samsung is bringing the Galaxy J7 Max and J7 Pro smartphones instead of launching the Galaxy J7 2017. However, the Galaxy J7 Pro is the same Galaxy J7 2017 that was launched earlier in Europe. As seen with the earlier launched Galaxy J7 devices, these two new devices also come with Ultra Data Saving, Ultra Data Power Saving, and S-bike modes.
The Galaxy J7 Pro will be supporting Samsung Pay for making card-less transactions and also becomes the most affordable Galaxy smartphone to offer the same. On the other hand, the Galaxy J7 Max comes with Samsung Pay Mini feature for payments via PayTM and UPI. As of now, there is no information about the availability of the Samsung Pay Mini for other Android smartphones. Both the devices run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with the TouchWiz UI laid on top. They also support dual SIM dual standby and features a dedicated MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. There is a physical home button placed beneath the display that comes with an integrated fingerprint sensor.
