Samsung J Max is the latest tablet from Samsung, and is a mid range device launched in India for Rs. 13,400. The tablet will be available for sale online as well as offline soon. While there are many new smartphones being launched in the Indian market, certainly the interest to buy tablets have taken a back seat with most phones these days getting sold have a rather large 5.5 inch screen size.
While you can do so much with the smartphone, most people find it unneccessary to carry a tablet.
The Samsung J Max has an overwhelming 7 inch display size with 1,280 x 800p resolution. The Samsung J Max looks like a giant smartphone with same design like several J series smartphones but with a much bigger body. It gives a feel of a large smartphone rather than a tablet.
Although this clearly hit the one handed mode option out of the park. At the same time it would prove to be a great size for media consumption such as movies, Games, YouTube videos and most of all for reading with low strain on eyes.
The J Max is powered by a 1.5 GHz Quad-core processor along with 1.5 GB RAM. Its strange to not see a rounded 2 GB RAM , wonder Why Samsung cuts corners when they know it won’t help sales charts.
The phablet has 16 GB inbuilt storage along with expandability option upto 200 GB with micro SD card.
Surprisingly J Max flaunts only a 8 MP autofocus rear camera along with just a 2 MP front shooter. The phablet supports all the connectivity options including GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS.
Although the main highlight of the tablet is the inclusion of VoLTE and it also supports dual sim option along with 4G connectivity.
The tablet seems to be thin despite have a huge display and measures at 186.9×108.8×8.7mm.
Powering the J Max is a decent 4000mAh battery which doesn’t seem to be much when compared to smartphones with much smaller display and almost similar size battery. Though Samsung has been doing a much better job of optimising the battery life on it’s devices compared to the most Chinese counterparts.
Unfortunately the disappointing thing about the J Max is its software version. It still runs on Android Lollipop. Now Samsung is yet to announce whether they would rather directly jump to Android N or would follow the obvious trail and offer an Android M update to the J Max.
Samsung has also given some lucarative offers along Samsung J Max. Buyers will receive a Samsung Bluetooth headset, as well as a one-year premium subscription to Vuclip, which gives a platform to watch movies, TV shows and much more. The J Max also sports S Bike and Ultra Data Saving modes.
The South Korean technology giant will offer J Max both online and offline market by the end of July. It will be available with a price tag of Rs. 13,400.
