The successors of the Samsung Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7 have reportedly been spotted on Chinese telecommunications certification site Tenaa. The listing reveals the photos and specifications of the two devices, leaving very little to the imagination.
The purported successors are being called Galaxy On5 (2016) and Galaxy On7 (2016) with model numbers SM-G5700 and SM-G6100 respectively. The successors seem to hold onto the dated Samsung design structure seen on last year’s models. The square-shaped camera lens sitting at the back with the flash beside it, and the capacitive navigation buttons in the front see no change. Apart from the screen size, there is little difference between the specifications of the Galaxy On5 (2016) and Galaxy On7 (2016).
Tenaa carries Samsung Galaxy On5 (2016) and Galaxy On7 (2016) as model numbers SM-G5700 and SM-G6100 respectively. The Samsung Galaxy On5 (2016) features a 5-inch HD display with an octa-core processor and 3GB RAM. It offers 32GB inbuilt storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera. It packs a 2600mAh battery, and runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. The dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy On5 (2016) measure 142.8×69.6×8.1mm, and the smartphone weighs 142 grams.
The Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016) features a larger 5.5-inch full-HD display. It packs a larger 3300mAh battery, measures at 151.5×74.9×8.0mm, and weighs 166.7 grams. All the other specifications remain the same. The listing confirms that a Gold colour option will be available on both smartphones.
There is no word on when these smartphones are expected to launch. Samsung launched its Galaxy On series in India in November last year. The Samsung Galaxy On5 was priced at Rs. 8,990, while the Samsung Galaxy On7 was priced at Rs. 10,990. Last month, Samsung also unveiled its successors Galaxy On5 Pro, and Galaxy On7 Pro for Rs. 9,190 and Rs. 11,190 respectively.
