Life goes on for Samsung despite the challenges of a massive voluntary recall for their Galaxy Note 7. They still have other products in the market of course and as long as the public doesn’t think their batteries will explode as well, then they will continue to release new ones. The latest one that they have unveiled in China is the 2016 edition of their Galaxy On7, which seems to be a mid-range device for a market that is always on the lookout for new products in this segment.
The new smartphone has a 5.5-inch full HD TFT display and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 2GHz processor. It weighs at 167g and measures at 151.7 x 75 x 8mm. Its RAM is at 3GB while the internal memory is at 32GB but it can be expanded to 256GB. When it comes to cameras, it’s not that outstanding at 13GB for the main shooter and 8MP for the front-facing one.
It will not yet come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box but instead run on Android 6.1 Marshmallow. The battery is at 3,300mAh and supports fast charging so it shouldn’t be a problem especially if you have power banks. The Galaxy On7 (2016) also has a fingerprint sensor in its home button and comes in gold, pink, and black. It is priced at RMB 1,599 which is around $240.
China’s Samsung website has also teased the appearance of the 2016 updated variant of the Galaxy On5, saying that it will be powered by Snapdragon 617 SoC with octa-core 1.5GHz processor and comparing it to the Galaxy On7. There has been no official announcement yet on this device.
