Earlier: Oct 23, 2015 – The Samsung On series Smartphones i.e. the On5 & On7 which we had exclusively covered this week on PhoneRadar are now officially launched in China. These devices are yet to be launched in India with the plans being delayed because of the production issues but they are listed and officially live on the Samsung’s China website.
There’s no word from Samsung on the official pricing of these devices yet but as expected from the Indian listings we are expecting them to be priced around 952 yuan and 1269 yuan. These are mid-ranged devices from Samsung which still follow the same design language that we have been seeing from Samsung.
Because of a legal compliance Samsung has started listing the application size of all the apps that are pre-installed on the devices. You can find the same as shown below for the Camera App, Browser, Contacts, Messaging, Clock etc.
The new Samsung devices are going to come with in-house Exynos 3475 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz along with 1.5GB of RAM. The storage on the Samsung Galaxy On5 (SM-G550) would be of 8GB with the support of the microSD card slot for storage expansion. It would be powered by 2600mAh battery while the Samsung Galaxy On7 (SM-G600) is powered by a slightly larger 3000mAH battery.
In terms of the camera capabilities, the ON 7 would be sporting a 13-megapixel camera on rera with LED Flash and having an aperture number of f/2.1 while the ON 5 would be coming with 8-megapixel shooter on the rear with same camera lens of f/2.1. The front facing snapper on the new devices is going to be the same, that is, 5-megapixel sensor with aperture number of f/2.2. These are the same set of camera that are featured in on the budget friendly Samsung Galaxy J5.
