Samsung launches low-end Galaxy On7 in Korea
Samsung is calling its target audience for the Galaxy On5 and On7 the “always on generation.” Its most recent budget smartphones aim to provide as much value for money as feasible without hurting the profits of the Korean manufacturer. The “On” in the name of the phones plays on the fact that today’s generation is always online, connected, and glued to their smartphones. The two phones have 4G connectivity on its two SIM slots, large batteries to have them going 24/7, with free right of entry to tons of music tracks via Samsung’s MixRadio service.
In respect to hardware, the Galaxy On5 and On7 may not be too unlike the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7, but Samsung is setting the price significantly lower (approximately $135 and $165). The single noteworthy dissimilarity is the lack of a Super AMOLED display on any of the Galaxy On devices. This is simply Samsung’s way of saying that they could restructure their merchandise lineup and quit introducing the same devices, yet they want to keep on flooding the market with more phones to keep their revenues flowing.
Anyway, the Galaxy On5 and On7 are real, with Indian customers having the option to buy them from Flipkart, the local vendor.
The Galaxy On5 and On7 are vaguely thicker models of the Galaxy J5 and J7; the bodies may be thicker in general, yet these phones don’t have the hideous fat rims that are visible on the lineup of the Galaxy J. Furthermore, their edges are to some extent less round. It is an entirely plastic structure, with a silky soft touch back cover that is seen virtually on every Samsung phone recently. The back feels cheap and slick, and it’s quite an attractive low-cost situation when it comes to the how the devices feel and look.
All the components and buttons are situated right where they regularly are on Samsung smartphones. The earpiece and navigation keys on the front; camera, LED flash and loudspeaker at the back, volume buttons and power button on the left and right; and 3.5 mm headphone jacks and microUSB on the bottom. The microSD slot, SIM slots, and the battery are available after taking off the back cover. There is no 4G LTE logo at the back on the Galaxy On series, yet these devices support 4G networks, that too on both SIMs.
With the Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7, Samsung has reverted to utilizing LCD displays for budget smartphones, after inserting Super AMOLED displays on a slew of devices, including the Galaxy J7, Galaxy J5, Galaxy J2, and the Z3 powered by Tizen. Consequently, the Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7 are not so attractive when it comes to the familiarity with the visual experience. The distinction is a bit high in comparison to what we usually see on LCD screens, and these displays can get bright.
Angles of viewing are quite good, although a slight hue appears on-screen as you tilt the devices to any side. The Galaxy On5 is the sharpest as it has HD resolution with a 5-inch display, as compared to the 5.5” display of the same resolution on the Galaxy On7. That is not to say there will not be seeing pixels on the Galaxy On5 screen, yet the pixelation on the On7 is a bit more prominent.
Like the majority of the latest budget Samsung smartphones, it lacks the ambient light sensor on the specification sheet, meaning there is no automatic brightness. The outdoor mode is much better, though, and enabling it removes any impression of viewing issues underneath the bright light. Both the Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7 possess displays that are relatively sufficient, yet you should be looking at other devices if excellent displays top your list of must-haves.
In a bid to recuperate from their profit loss due to issues with the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung decided to introduce the Galaxy On7 in South Korea. The phone is 55” and is loaded with a 16GB memory and 3GB Ram. The frame is metallic, and it comes with a 13MP back camera and 8MP front camera.
The Galaxy On7 is obtainable in two unique colors of Gold and Black. The price is set at 399,000 won, which is relative $399. The phone has features comparable to its flagship models, such as the F1.0 aperture that permits filming even on a low light setting. It is also obtainable with biometric recognition and lots more.
It should be noted that the Galaxy On5 and On7 were introduced last year in India, but they were constrained in nearly all South Asian countries. Alternatively, the Galaxy On7 is going universal after it was launched in China last September and India just last month.
When it concerns features, the Galaxy On7 does not let the consumers down. It has a 5.5” touchscreen display and in 1920 x 1080 pixels. The one that was introduced in South Korea is obtainable with a 1.6GHz processor, while the Chinese and Indian models come with Snapdragon 625 chips.
When it concerns its camera feature, the phone can capture remarkable selfies as well as video chats. Both back and front cameras have f/1.9 apertures. The Galaxy On7 operates on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and runs with 4G LTE connectivity. It also has a metallic body that never fails to add a touch of class.
Apple and LG, the two recognized rivals of Samsung, were capable of experiencing high sales in South Korea with their V20 and iPhone 7 models respectively. The Note 7 dilemma is held responsible for the alleged enhancement of sales, but with the launch of the Galaxy On7, Samsung hopes it can make up for the lost profit.
