Low cost Samsung Galaxy On5 and On7 arrive in India
Following a silent launch in China the other week, Samsung has officially unveiled its Galaxy On5 and On7 smartphones in India today. The two are targeted at the budget segment of the market, but aren’t without a few features to try and help them stand out from the crowd.
The design language for the On series will be very familiar to anyone who has taken a look at Samsung’s Tizen-powered Z3 smartphone. Both phones will be manufactured in India, as part of the company’s ‘Make in India’ initiative.
The Galaxy On5 is a 5-inch smartphone that boasts a 720p display resolution. The phone is powered by a quad-core Exynos 3475 processor, 1.5GB of RAM and comes with 8GB of internal storage. Fortunately, there is a microSD card slot for more space. The handset also comes with a 2,600mAh battery, an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front facing camera, like Samsung’s other lower cost Galaxy A and E smartphones.
The Galaxy On7 is a larger 5.7-inch smartphone with the same 720p resolution. There are a few hardware differences compared with the On5 though. The handset features an upgraded 13 megapixel rear camera, a larger 3,000mAh battery and a Snapdragon 410 processing package.
These two new smartphones also are the first to make use of MixRadio, which gives users access to over 32 million tracks, including tracks in 12 Indian regional languages. The app features both online and offline play.
The smaller Galaxy On5 is the cheaper of the two handsets, with a price tag set at Rs. 8,990 (~$150). The Galaxy On7 will cost Rs. 10,990 (~$185). Both phones come in black or white color options and will be available exclusively though FlipKart starting from midnight tomorrow.
