After recently launching the Galaxy A8+ smartphone in India, Samung has now launched an affordable mid-range smartphone called the Galaxy On7 Prime at an event in Gurugram on January 17. The latest device from Samsung was already being teased on Amazon.in for quite some time and it will be available for purchase on the e-commerce site starting January 20. The device can also be purchased from Samsung's official online store - Samsung Shop.
The biggest higlight of the Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime is that is comes pre-loaded with a new visual search feature called Samsung Mall. The device is also one of the most affordable Samsung devices that support Samsung's Payment service Samsung Pay mini. But before we move on to the specifications and other details, let's talk about the new 'Samsung Mall' feature.
What is Samsung Mall feature?
The new Samsung Mall feature is a visual search feature that lets users take a photo of a product in real life, or select an image from their phone's gallery. It then uses the visual information to identify the product and find similar products across multiple online shopping sites. Users can then proceed to buy the product via Samsung Mall's 'Universal Cart.' The feature also lets users check various products from different shopping sites all at a single place called All-in-one shopping.

The Samsung Galaxy On7 prime sports a 5.5-inch Full HD PLS TFT LCD display with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. It is powered by a 1.6 GHz Exynos 7870 octa-core chipset that comes mated to either 3GB or 4GB of RAM.
As far as photography is concerned, the Galaxy On7 Prime features a 13MP CMOS sensor with f/1.9 aperture and autofocus at the back and a same 13MP sensor with f/1.9 aperture at the front but without the autofocus feature.
