Leading smartphone-maker Samsung confirmed to launch a new handset dubbed as the Galaxy On Nxt in India later this week.
The company, in a bid to build curiosity among fans, released two short video clips revealing a couple of key features of the upcoming device. As per the teasers, the Galaxy On Nxt is said to come with unibody design language having full metal-cover on the back and inside, it will feature octa-core processor. Rest of the hardware details such as screen size, camera, RAM, storage and battery capacity have been kept under wraps, to be revealed on the launch day.
Samsung also revealed that the new Galaxy On Nxt will be launched on October 20 and would be exclusively available on Flipkart. The announcement comes just days after Samsung debuted the Galaxy On8 on recently concluded Flipkart's Big Billion Days sale.
Going by the series of smartphone launches, it looks like Samsung has taken an aggressive stance to ward off competition, especially from Chinese brands such as Xiaomi, LeEco, Huawei (sub-brand Honor) and Lenovo (subsidiary Motorola), which sold substantial number of phones in the first half of the year.
In a related development, Samsung is scheduled to release another smartphone, rumoured to be the Galaxy C9 series, in China on October 21.
It is said to boast a massive 6.0-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display and come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS, 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core and 4,000 mAh battery, which is enough to the keep it running the whole day under mixed usage.
One notable aspect of the Galaxy C9 series phone is its camera hardware. Word on the street is that it would come packed with 16MP cameras on both front as well as back. There is no word on whether it will have dedicated LED flash on the front, but going by the recently released photo-centric devices, Samsung might probably incorporate either the LED flash or application software so the screen beams white light to the face while taking selfies, similar to the Retina flash system in Apple iPhones.
