After deciding to discontinue the Opera max browser last year, one of the first data friendly mobile browsers, was bought by Samsung which has picked up the service and turned it into “Samsung Max.
So after all, Samsung did manage to save the browser from the dead pool.
Opera Max users will get an update that brings them over to the now-Samsung-owned version, while other users can get their hands on the Android app or check the Galaxy Apps store. However, it will only be available on Samsung phones rather than all Android devices as had previously been the case.
Seounghoon Oh, VP of Samsung R&D Institute India, said in a statement, “At Samsung, we’ve been committed to creating inclusive data saving and privacy protection services for all our devices. Because of this, we are now introducing Samsung Max to our mid-range devices as an exclusive and unique service that sets Samsung devices apart from the rest of the Smartphone market.”
