A Samsung device (SM-G6100), understood to be the 2016 series Galaxy On7, has been spotted on a popular benchmarking site, revealing key features of the smartphone.

As per the GFX Bench site (courtesy, Mobipicker), Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016) is said to come with the 4.8-inch HD (1280x720p) screen and run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow powered 64-bit class Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core, Adreno 506 graphics engine, 3GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt storage (10GB user available).

It is also said to house 12MP primary camera with LED flash, autofocus, HDR, touch focus, face detection, full HD video recording and a 7MP front-snapper with full HD video recording.

Appearance of the Galaxy On7 (2016) on a benchmarking site hints that Samsung is testing the product, so that it matches the performance levels of the rivals in a particular category, in this case mid-range. If not satisfied, there is chance that the company might replace CPU or increase RAM to match the competition.

Usually when devices make an appearance on benchmarking sites, they get launched in three or sometimes two months; so we can expect Samsung to unveil the new Galaxy On7 (2016) around August or September.

The 2015 Galaxy On7 (SM-600F) made its debut in November. But this year Samsung fans can expect the successor to break covers much early.
