Samsung Pay to be extended for more affordable smartphones in India soon
The two new flagship phones by Samsung are so good, that they have effectively pushed last year’s Samsung Galaxy S7 edge down to third place, making Samsung the sole leader in the first, second and third places for making the best smartphones according to consumers. The two smartphones have beaten its biggest competitor Apple’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in several categories including design and camera.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro sports a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED 2.5D curved glass display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. “The Galaxy J7 Max, featuring a 5.7″ display and 4GB of RAM, will hit store shelves on June 20, while the J7 Pro, featuring a 5.5″ screen and 3GB of RAM, will launch in mid-July. This model has 64GB of internal storage which is greater than J7 Max. Consumers have seen this with the Galaxy Note 7, which released running Android Marshmallow when Android Nougat was already available.
The Herald says that the Galaxy 8 will have a design similar to that of Galaxy S8, but will feature a dual lens camera on the rear side. Both devices are equipped with home button fingerprint sensors for authentication. Samsung J7 Pro is a new breed of the Samsung phones which fill the gap between the upper-middle tier Galaxy A and the generic Galaxy J series. Both the devices feature “social camera” that allows consumers to add filters or stickers on-the-go and share the picture instantly on social media apps. Created to work on mid-range smartphones, Samsung Pay Mini comes with UPI and mobile wallet integration.
The J series “Make for India” innovations like Ultra Data Saving, S bike mode, S Power Planning have added vast value to J smartphones. The memory can be expanded up to 128GB with microSD.
The reports states, “Finally, a few top-end cameras, including the iPhone 7 Plus and the LG G6, have dual rear-facing cameras, to enhance either zoom or wide-angle photography”. And this also happens to be one of the biggest disadvantages with the S8 range, as the sensor placed adjacent to the rear camera often makes it hard to differentiate one from the other. The device packs a 3300mAh battery.
The latter is especially important given the position Samsung was in prior to the Galaxy S8’s launch, having to deal with the fallout from the fire-prone Galaxy Note 7.
