New Samsung Galaxy On7 and On5 Officially Launched in China
Samsung has just launched two new devices destined for the budget smartphone market – the Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7. Despite some compromises in the hardware department, these new Galaxy handsets do have their merits.
The Galaxy On5 is the smaller of the two handsets, coming in at 5.0-inches while the Galaxy On7 has a 5.5-inch screen. Both smartphones feature a TFT display with an acceptable 1280×720 resolution. There are some differences when it comes to the cameras. The Galaxy On7 features a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front facing sensor, while the On5 has to make to with an 8 megapixel rear camera. There’s a large 3,000mAh battery in the Galaxy On7, while the On5 has a similarly suitable 2,600mAh cell.
4G LTE is also supported and there are two SIM slots available, should you need them. In terms of design, the Galaxy On5 and On7 share a very similar look to Samsung’s other mid and low end smartphones, and they look rather nice for presumably budget smartphones.
Today Samsung China official took the wraps off the Galaxy On7 and the Galaxy On5 smartphones – two entry-level offers with attractive designs. While both look a lot like the A series, they are made entirely of plastic with faux-leather rear covers. Samsung says those affordable phones come with “an unprecedentedly thin frames and bezels”.
