Samsung Galaxy On8

Following the handset’s unveiling at the end of last month, the Samsung Galaxy On8 is now on sale in India through retailer Flipkart. The smartphone has turned out to be a rather good deal for Samsung fans looking for a new mid-ranger, as the On8 boasts some reasonable specifications and costs just Rs. 14,900 ($225).

However, Flipkart is only selling the Galaxy On8 at this price for a limited time. The regular retail price will be set ever so slightly higher at Rs. 15,900 ($240). Flipkart also mentions that it will be limited order quantities to just 1 device per customer for 30 days. To sweeten the deal, the retailer is also throwing in a free 32GB Samsung microSD card.

Here’s a breakdown of the Galaxy On8’s specifications:

  • Operating System: Android Marshmallow 6.0
  • Display: 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) sAMOLED
  • Processor: 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 Octa-Core Processor
  • RAM: 3GB
  • Internal Storage: 16GB; expandable up to 128GB using a microSD card
  • Rear Camera: 13MP AF | f1.9 | LED Flash
  • Front Camera: 5MP | f1.9 | LED Flash
  • Dimensions: 151.7 x 76.0 x 7.8mm
  • Weight: 169 g
  • Battery: 3300mAh

The Galaxy On8 is being sold in Black, Gold, and White color options, although only the Gold model is currently still left in stock at this reduced price point. Samsung hasn’t stated whether or not the smartphone will go on sale outside of India, but there’s a good chance that this handset could appeal to mid-range customers in other markets too.
