In a never-ending confusion of relative devices that Samsung is pushing out every now and again, the company’s Indian division launched the new Galaxy On Max. A seemingly familiar looking device that resembles much like the recently announced Galaxy J7 Max. While they share almost the same design, there are a few minor tweaks such as the absence of the Smart Glow ring on the back that sets them apart.
The new Galaxy On Max is built in a full metal unibody design and comes with a 5.7-inch LCD display with a full HD resolution. The handset is powered by a MediaTek Helio P25 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage.
For photography, the Galaxy On Max shares what flagship devices enjoyed for quite some time already, a better equipped camera module with a 13 Megapixel sensor both on the front and back. The main shooter features an f/1.7 Aperture for superb low-light imaging while the front Selfie camera has an aperture of f/1.9 also designed to improved image clarity and quality in low lighting situations. What’s more with these cameras are the fact that both the front and back are coupled with a dedicated LED flash for better night time photos.
For shoppers, the Galaxy On Max supports Samsung Pay mini, a localized and lite version of Samsung Pay that allows users to pay their purchases and transactions both in stores with Samsung Pay accredited terminals and online. The system requires internet connectivity to work as it saves the user’s information in the cloud for safe keeping plus with the assistance and the convenience of the fingerprint sensor embedded inside the home button for even more secured transactions.
The Galaxy On Max is driven by Android 7 (Nougat) with Samsung’s proprietary UI on top and runs on a 3300 mAh non-removable battery.
The new handset is available in either Black or Gold color options starting tomorrow July 10, a minute before midnight through Flipkart for INR16,900. Customers who grabs the new handset through Standard Chartered debit and credit cards will get a INR2,000 off upon purchase.
