Samsung Galaxy J7 Max leaked specs portray a powerful and affordable 5.7-incher


Samsung's affordable J-line is home to some surprisingly capable phones, and the upcoming J7 Max is prepped up to be the most powerful of the bunch. This photograph of its product presentation appeared online, revealing the handset's design and complete spec sheet. While the phone's looks aren't much to fawn over, there's definitely some brawn to make up for that.

The J7 Max supposedly has a 5.7-inch, 1080p resolution TFT Display (no OLED - interesting!) and is powered by a 1.6 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6757V (Helio P20) chip. The phone has a whopping 4GB of RAM and comes with 32GB of expandable internal storage. There's a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED Flash F/1.7 aperture on it, alongside a 13-megapixel front camera. The handset supports Samsung Pay Mini transactions as well! A 3300mAh battery runs the mains and the operating system is Android Nougat. Sounds like a solid handset!

The J7 Max will be sold in gold and black colors, at a price hovering around $311. Its supposedly scheduled for release in the second week of June. Now, whether Sammy will bring this phone to US carriers as an affordable upper mid-ranger, of sorts, is another question. J-phones aren't scarce in carrier shops, but this one in particular is powered by a MediaTek chipset that doesn't communicate nicely (or at all) with American LTE bands.

If Samsung is planning on bringing the J7 Max stateside, it will likely have to fashion a Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered variant. If this doesn't happen, the Galaxy J7 Perx on Sprint ($265) is the closest you can get to this combination of price and features.

I wonder what makes Luis D think that J7 Max with 1.6 GHz Helio P20 will be a powerful phone, because normally the Cluster 1 CPU of Helio P20 clocked at 2.3GHz like the one in Xperia XA1/XA1 Ultra.
