Samsung had introduced quite a few entry-level and mid-range devices this year, including the Galaxy J1, Galaxy J5, Galaxy J7, Galaxy C5, Galaxy C7 and the Galaxy J3 Pro. That being said, it seems like two additional mid-rangers might be on the way. The Galaxy On7 appeared on Zauba at the beginning of this month, and the device had also made an appearance on GFXBench quite recently. That being said, its smaller sibling now surfaced as well, read on.
The original Galaxy On5 and On7 devices were introduced back in October last year in China. The two smartphones have also been launched in India a month later, and it seems like Samsung is already planning to release their successors. Following the Galaxy On7, Galaxy On5 was also spotted on Zauba website. The device has been imported into India for testing purposes, and will carry the SM-G5700 model number (last year’s device carried the SM-G5500 model number). The device was imported on June 23rd according to the listing, and thanks to this info, we also know that it will sport a 5-inch display, just like its predecessor. Three units of this smartphone were imported according to Zauba, and their average price is Rs. 10,310 ($152), though do keep in mind this pricing isn’t exactly a good guideline for the final product. Anyhow, a day after these three units arrived, 11 additional phones were imported into India.
We still do not know what to expect in terms of specifications here, but last year’s Galaxy On5 was more of an entry-level handset than anything else. It shipped with a 5-inch 720p display, 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable internal storage. Samsung’s Exynos 3475 quad-core SoC fueled the phone, and an 8-megapixel shooter was placed on the back of that device. The Galaxy On5 (2015) looked like basically any other entry-level smartphone Samsung released in the last couple of years, and we do expect its successor will sport a similar design as well. It seems like Samsung decided to keep the phone’s display size at 5 inches, though the company might opt to increase RAM in this handset from 1.5GB to 2GB. The camera might see an improvement as well, as we do expect Samsung to include a 13-megapixel snapper here. Either way, this handset will be quite affordable, and we’ll report back as soon as more info surfaces, stay tuned.
