Samsung unveiled the Galaxy On7 (2016) in China, a successor to the earlier Samsung Galaxy On7 which was announced back in October last year. This phone was spotted initially on Geekbench last month, which revealed that it may have a fingerprint scanner. Available in Black, Gold and Pink Gold colors, the new Galaxy On7 costs CNY 1599 (Rs.16,030 approximately). The phone is already up for pre-order in China.
Specifications wise, the Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016) sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display. It is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor clocked at 2 GHz and Adreno 506 GPU for graphics. The phone features 1GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, which supports further expansion up to 256GB via microSD card.
This year’s Samsung Galaxy On7 comes equipped with a 13-megapixel primary camera with f/1.9 aperture and LED flash. On the front, it houses an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. It also features a fingerprint scanner on the home button to unlock the device or make mobile payments. Currently, it can be used for Alibaba’s Alipay in China.
The Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016) packs in a 3300mAh battery with fast charging support. The phone runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software with Samsung’s own UI on top. On the connectivity front, it supports all the standard solutions such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, 4G LTE, and Bluetooth 4.2.
In case Samsung launches the On7 (2016) in India, we speculate the price to be around Rs.16000. At this price, it may face stiff competition from the Vivo V3 Max which at the time of writing costs Rs.15,499. The Vivo phone offers 4GB RAM, Snapdragon 652, Adreno 510 GPU, and 4G VoLTE support.
