Samsung Galaxy On5 and On7 (2016 Editions) Go Official in China



Last year, Samsung debuted a new smartphone series, the Galaxy On. The first members of the series were the Galaxy On5 and the Galaxy On7 which were exclusive to the Indian market. Two months ago, the company updated the two devices with “Pro” versions.

Today, the two have real successors in this year’s editions going by the same name.

The two devices have been redesigned and now adorn metal all around.

The Galaxy On7 (2016) has a 5.5-inch full HD display, 8 and 13-megapixel cameras at the front and back respectively with f/1.9 aperture, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 32GB onboard storage, 3GB RAM, Android Marshmallow (6.0.1), a 3,300mAh and support for LTE networks.

The Galaxy On5 (2016)’s specs haven’t been listed yet on the Samsung China website but it is expected to pack specifications inferior to those of the Galaxy On7, less memory, smaller battery, smaller display and the like.

The On7’s marked price is within mid-range territory at an equivalent of $240 excluding taxes.

Samsung confirmed to us that the two devices would be coming to Kenya by the end of the year and they will be expected to take on the many budget smartphone brands originating from China that have recently flooded the Kenyan market.
