Samsung are preparing to launch two budget Android devices for emerging markets. This is probably a move to catch a slice of the (low-end segment) cake where the numbers are. The two devices are named Samsung Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7, and they will both be launched in a few weeks time starting in India.


Both phones share a lot in specs. Same 720p Super AMOLED display, same 1.3 GHz quad-core Exynos 3475 processor, and 1.5GB of RAM. Both phones will carry 8 GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot. For the differences, The Galaxy ON 5 comes with an 8MP back camera while the Galaxy On7 carries a 13 MP sensor. Meanwhile, both phones will have a 5 MP front facing camera.

Another difference, the Galaxy On5 is a 5-inch device with 2,600mAh battery, while the ON 7 is a 5.5-inch device with a bigger 3,000 mAh battery. The former is estimated to cost around $150, while the later will be approximately $200.

It’s also important to note that these devices where actually manufactured in India as part of the “Make in India” initiative.


  1. Ah bless, Samsung tries again at the low end. So the On phones are for the Indian market, meanwhile the rest of us have the Galaxy Young/Y, Ace and Core.

    I’m honestly sure why they bother when the have the likes of Lava, Karbonn and Micromax to contend with in the Indian market. Maybe it’s tied to the idea that you get better support with an international brand?
