Samsung has made an official announcement on the launch of another smartphone in the Indian market, the Samsung Galaxy On Max.

This new phone has a 5.7-inch full HD LCD (1080p) display. The processor on the phone is an octa-core MediaTek chipset which clocks a decent speed of 2.39GHz. With 4GB RAM and 32GB storage memory, this phone tries to tear away from the mid-segment and knocks at the next higher level.

The 3300mAh battery is also an element of support in this. The storage can be expanded to 256GB also, through a microSD card. The OS is the latest Android Nougat and the TouchWiz UI takes care of many apps directly.

It is however the imaging functionality that the company wants to highlight and to position the Samsung Galaxy On Max as photography special smartphone. The reason is simple, the main rear sensor of 13MP sports an aperture of f/1.7 that yields superior images even in low light conditions. The camera in the front for selfies is also 13MP in size and both the cameras have LED flashes to support them.

Going one step further, in appreciation of the users’ desire to share the photos they capture on social media, Samsung has incorporated a feature on this new smartphone by which users can pin their frequently contacted friends within the camera app itself.

This means you can instantly share the photographs you capture with those contacts whether on Facebook or other platforms. Other features include the Samsung Pay Mini as well.

The general refrain among the observers is that there is much different between Samsung Galaxy On Max and the Galaxy J7 Max, which was released recently. Some even go to the extent of calling this a re-branding exercise, since almost all the features explained above are present in the Galaxy J7 Max as well.

However, there is a difference in the price. While the J7 Max was released at Rs 20, 900 the Galaxy On Max is being offered at Rs 16,900.

Another notable information is that this new release from Samsung is an online exclusive and won’t be sold offline. Even here, only Flipkart wills sell the phone and there are reports of an early bird kind of offer of Rs 2, 000 going additionally.
