Samsung is set to add to its growing list of products offered via T-Mobile by unveiling the budget phone Galaxy On5 as well as a Galaxy Tab E tablet.
The huge number of Samsung Galaxy phones in the budget category can be confusing. For instance, it is not easy to tell the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy On5 apart when it comes to the looks. In addition, the two have their own similarities as far as performance and features are concerned, but still, they are not the same thing.
As it seems, Samsung and T-Mobile want to capture the Always On generation with this new phone that targets delivering one of the best bangs for your buck. You will enjoy the fact that this phone comes with support for 4G connectivity, a decent battery as well as a decent spec package.
Starting June 29, Samsung Galaxy On5 will be available for purchase via T-Mobile. Being a budget phone, you won’t be asked to pay an upfront fee. Instead, you can get it for just $5.83 per month for a period of 24 months. If contracts are not your thing, the Galaxy On5 will retail at $139.99.
If you are interested in securing a new Galaxy Tab E tablet, T-Mobile will also be availing this device, but a little earlier than the Galaxy On5. Starting June 22, you can grab yourself a new Tab E tablet for a price of just $239.99. As for those looking out for a contract, this device will be available on a 24 months contract that demands $10 per month, but just like the On5, there is no down payment needed.
As for the spec sheet, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy On5 will feature a 5-inch AMOLED screen that has a resolution of 720p. Under the hood is a quad-core SoC that is paired with a RAM of 1.5GB. On the inside, you also get 8GB of storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card. Camera-wise, there is a 5MP main camera and a 2MP selfie sensor. To keep the Galaxy On5 always on, there is a 2600mAh battery, which should be enough to take you through the day.
Samsung Galaxy Tab E, on the other hand, is a tablet with an 8-inch screen size that packs an 800p resolution. Under the hood, you get an Exynos 3475 SoC that is paired with a RAM of 1.5GB and 16GB of onboard storage. This storage can be expanded via a microSD card. The tablet shares the same camera specs as the Galaxy On5, but it has a larger 5000mAh battery.
Both devices are powered by the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and also support T-Mobile’s LTE bands.
