Rumor: Galaxy Mega On Won’t Feature TouchWiz Themes

October 9, 2015 - Written By Muni Perez

A while back, Samsung announced they would be releasing another installment of the Mega brand with the Galaxy Mega On. In the last few weeks, we have been seeing a lot of rumors and leaks, which revealed the almost all of the phone’s specifications. With the Galaxy S6, Samsung introduced a nice feature for it’s Android iteration, which is the ability to use themes to modify the looks of TouchWiz. So, if you are not a fan of the Korean user interface, there is an option. However, according to a report from a Dutch website and spread by SamMobile, this iteration of TouchWiz may not come with themes support.

This information is based on user manual images of the device, which doesn’t include any mention about the subject. Samsung left their regional branch to decide whether theme support should be available for each device on different countries and regions, so there’s a chance that models in other countries will come with theme support. Additionally, this may be an unfinished version of the user manual, so the mentions about the feature could be added to the final version. If you are curious about the specs, the recent China Communications Regulator TENAA certification revealed what is coming under the hood for this Samsung handset. A quad-core Snapdragon 410 clocked at 1.2 GHz is coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory. Although the power core is nothing to be excited at, the phone is expected to feature a 13-megapixel rear camera, great news for a low-end device. The front sensor is also hefty, with 5 megapixels. Another good thing is the huge 3.000 mAh battery, which is likely to provide at least a day of battery life. The display is expected at 5.5 inches with an HD resolution. The fact that it will have only 8 GB of internal space is alleviated by the fact that it’s storage will be expandable to up to 128 GB via a microSD card.

We still don’t have a release timeline yet, although when the TENAA certification is out it means that the device is about to be released. In fact, it recently landed in India for testing, alongside with it’s smaller sibling, the Galaxy Grand On. These will be entry level phones for first-time smartphone users, so expect a cheap price tag.
