Samsung India accidentally leaks product pages for both devices ahead of schedule.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
