E-commerce major Amazon India has been teasing an impending Samsung phone launch for weeks, but there were no details on its price-range, availability and specs up until now. The mystery device is officially launched as the Galaxy On7 Prime and is slated to be exclusively available on Amazon from next week.
The new Samsung phone sports a slim metallic body having 8.0mm in thickness and come with a 5.5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) screen.
As far as the camera is concerned, Galaxy On7 Prime will house the same 13MP snapper, one on the back and another on the front having f/1.9 aperture, guaranteeing good quality pictures in the low-light condition.
Samsung phone is powered by the company's proprietary 1.6GHz Exynos 7870 processor with 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB internal storage with option to expand up to 256GB via microSD card. There is no word on the operating system software, but going by the previous Galaxy On series, it most likely to come with Android Nougat OS.
The Galaxy On7 Prime boasts company's most secured cashless transaction feature: Samsung Pay mini with secured UPI and mobile wallet options.
The company will be offering the new Galaxy On7 Prime in two configuration — 3GB RAM+ 32GB storage and 4GB RAM+ 64GB storage — with prices starting around Rs 15,000.
Lately, Samsung is facing stiff competition from Xiaomi in the budget and mid-range segment thanks to its feature-rich Redmi and Redmi Note series.
With the new Galaxy On7 Prime, Samsung will be able to strengthen its product portfolio, particularly the mid-range category that is currently dominated by Chinese vendors.
