Samsung Galaxy ON5 and ON7 entry-level smartphones sighted
Rumors have been swirling for some time about a couple of new inexpensive smartphones for launch alongside the budget Z3 in India. Earlier today, a quick trigger finger from the Samsung India website had accidentally posted the ON5 and ON7 Galaxy smartphones before the pages were taken offline. Of course, the Internet is already all over the leak with details down to the looks and hardware.
Before the pages were pulled, users were able to record the model names for the 5-inch Galaxy ON5 (SM-G550FY) and 5.5-inch ON7 (SM-G600FY). Prices were not revealed, but both smartphones will each carry a 1280 x 720 resolution touchscreen, a 1.3 GHz Exynos 3475 SoC, 1.5 GB RAM, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and 8 GB eMMC with MicroSD expandability up to 128 GB. The ON5 is expected to measure 142.3 x 72.1 x 8.5 mm with a weight of 149 grams.
Differences include their screen sizes (5-inch vs. 5.5-inch), battery packs (2600 mAh vs. 3000 mAh), and rear cameras (8 MP vs. 13 MP). The front-facing cameras will be identical at 5 MP and f/2.2 aperture. A launch outside of India is currently unknown, though an official announcement will likely happen sooner rather than later.
