The Samsung Galaxy J7 Max is a 4G enabled dual SIM Android smartphone, running on the Nougat flavor of the operating system (version 7.0).
This device features a unibody metallic design which can be picked up in either black or Gold.
In front of the device, up top, sits the front facing camera, a speaker phone, some sensors and an LED flash.
At the bottom is Samsung’s signature physical navigation panel with a menu (or recent apps, if you will) touch button, a physical home button, and a back touch button.
At the back, you’ll find Sammy’s branding at the center of the device close to the top and the rear facing camera (accompanied by its flash light) closer to the top.
The display on this baby is a 1080p 5.7-inch PLS Touch display which stretches from almost edge to edge on the device’s frame making the sides near bezel-less.
As briefly pointed out, the display has a full HD resolution (1080 x 1920 pixels) and hence a resulting pixel density of about 386 pixels per inch (386 PPI).
