Just when you thought Samsung will not launch any more new product lines, you now have two new budget smartphones launched in China. The Galaxy On7 and Galaxy On5 are the two newest entry-level devices from the Korean OEM, and it looks like they want to compete with the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei, who are big names in that market segment in the region. The specs and pictures may look like these two belong to the Galaxy A series, but they’re actually slightly different of course.
For one thing, the two new smartphones are actually made of plastic, but with faux leather rear covers, which makes it more attractive than the usual entry-level devices. They also have extremely thin frame and bezels, which makes it somehow similar to the higher end Galaxy S6 smartphone. The more lower end of the two, the Galaxy On5 is a 5” HD display device, running on Exynos 3475 SoC, and has just 1.5GB RAM. The storage may just be 8GB but it is expandable. It also has an 8MP main camera, a 5MP front- facing one and a 2600 mAH batter.
The Samsung Galaxy On7 meanwhile has a 5.5” 720p TFT display and runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. It has the same internal memory and storage capacity of the Galaxy On5, but has a bigger battery life with a 3,000 mAH one. The main camera is also significantly better with a 13MP snapper, but the “selfie cam” remains the same. It is also 8.2mm thin and will be available in white and gold colors.
Both devices will come with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and Samsung Milk Music will also be pre-installed. They will be available in China soon, with the Galaxy On5 retailing for around $150 and the Galaxy On7 for around $200. There are also rumors it will arrive in India, which makes sense given it is an emerging entry-level market.
