It is not just Tizen smartphones that are coming to Kenya soon. Samsung is also bringing its Galaxy On series of smartphones to Kenya before the end of 2016.
The Galaxy On series comprises of the Galaxy On5 and the Galaxy On7 which were both launched late last year and have since gone on sale in several markets including India.
Like other Samsung devices in the Galaxy J series, the Galaxy On lineup targets budget smartphone buyers.
In Kenya, Samsung will likely use the Galaxy On devices to take head on competing devices that have been flooding the Kenyan market from low-cost Chinese device brands.
Since it is nearly a year since the first generation of Galaxy On smartphones was unveiled, they are not the devices we are likely to see come Q4 2016 when we expect the Galaxy On to hit the Kenyan market. There have been rumours of 2016 editions of the Galaxy On5 and On7. It is these new editions that we expect to see.
