All eyes will be on Samsung's budget and mid-range smartphones now that the company has unveiled the much-awaited Galaxy Note 7. The company appears to be working on the launch of the Galaxy On5 (2016) and Galaxy On7 (2016), and it may happen earlier than expected.

Now, both the Galaxy On5 (2016) with model number SM-G5700 and the Galaxy On7 (2016) with model number SM-G6100 have been approved by the Chinese telecom equipment certification authority TENAA (via TimesNews), giving a clear hint that their release date is not far off.

The devices were earlier spotted on Geekbench and Zauba, a website that keeps track of imports and exports in India. Samsung Galaxy On5 (2016) has also been certified by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC).

According to TENAA listing, the Galaxy On5 (2016) sports a 5-inch display with 720×1,280 pixels screen resolution, measures 142.8×69.6×8.1 mm in dimension, weighs 142 g, powered by a 2,600mAh battery, and available in Gold, Pink Gold, Black and Metallic Gold colours. Under the hood, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, 32GB internal memory expandable up to 128GB via microSD card, 3GB RAM, 13MP main camera, 8MP front-snapper, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system.

On the other hand, the Galaxy On7 (2016) has been spotted with a 5.5-inch display with 1,920×1,080 resolution, measures 151.5×74.9×8.0 mm in dimension, weighs 166.7 g, and powered by a 3,300mAh battery. It is also expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 32GB inbuilt storage expandable up to 128GB, 3GB RAM, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, 13MP main camera, and an 8MP front-snapper.

Interestingly, benchmarking website Geekbench has listed a device with model of number SM-G610F, believed to be the Galaxy On7 (2016), which means Samsung could release another model of the device with an Exynos 7870 processor.
