Samsung’s new Galaxy J Max phablet sports a humongous 7-inch screen

Samsung Galaxy J Max

Samsung has come out with a brand new phablet dubbed the Galaxy J Max for people on the lookout for a massive phone at a budget price. The handset carries a staggering 7-inch display, blurring the lines between what constitutes a tablet or a phone.

Interested buyers can snap up the Samsung Galaxy J Max at Rs 13400 by the end of July. The combination of the mid-range cost and humongous size positions the phone as a rival to the Xiaomi Mi Max in India. The latter is smaller thanks to its 6.44-inch size and more expensive at Rs 14999, but offers a stronger set of specs overall.

Other than its size, top highlights of the Galaxy J Max include its 4000mAh battery which can apparently last for 9 hours at a stretch. The handset further ships with a Bluetooth headset to make calling more convenient for users who might be reluctant to hold such a massive device to their ear for an extended period of time.
