Samsung is sending invites for a New Delhi launch event on Tuesday, and the company is expected to launch its new Galaxy On smartphones series in India - specifically, the Galaxy On7 and Galaxy On5.
While the invitation does not mention exactly what Samsung will announce at the event, it does mention "the latest addition to its smartphone portfolio," indicating the launch of the recently unveiled Galaxy On series of smartphones. The invitation, seen below, also features the word 'On' placed in isolation, lending further credence to the launch of the Galaxy On series of smartphones.
Both the Galaxy On7 and Galaxy On5 were recently listed on the company's India and China websites. The Samsung Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7 smartphones sport a lot of similar specifications, with the biggest difference being the screen size. While the Galaxy On5 features a 5-inch display; the Galaxy On7 comes with 5.5-inch display. Both the handsets come with TFT touchscreens and sport HD (720x1280 pixels) resolution. They are powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor and 1.3GHz quad-core Exynos 3475 processor respectively, coupled with 1.5GB of RAM.
Both pack 8GB of inbuilt storage and can be expanded via microSD card (up to 128GB). As with the Galaxy On5, the Samsung China listing does not mention the exact Android version of the Galaxy On7.
The Galaxy On7 sports a 13-megapixel rear autofocus camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. The rear camera is accompanied by an LED flash and supports full-HD (1080p) video recording. The Galaxy On5 sports an 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera and a 5-megapixel front camera.
Connectivity options include Bluetooth, GPS, Glonass, Micro-USB, 3G, GPRS/ EDGE, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. Both the dual Micro-SIM Galaxy On7 and Galaxy On5 support Indian 4G LTE bands. Both smartphones are listed in White and Gold colours.
The Galaxy On7 packs a 3000mAh removable battery, which is larger than the 2600mAh battery seen on the Galaxy On5. It measures 151.8x77.5x8.2mm and weighs 172 grams. The Galaxy On5 on the other hand measures 142.3x72.1x8.5mm and weighs 149 grams. The listings show that the Galaxy On series of smartphones feature metal-styled frames and sport leather-feel rear covers
