Samsung Galaxy On7 (2015) was launched last year November. While the company has been busy with updating a huge chunk of the devices it released last year, among them the Galaxy J and Galaxy A series, it is only now that news of a refreshed Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016) are showing up.
According to benchmarking site GFXBench, the Galaxy On7 (2016) will soon be released to the market to take the place of last year’s version. In addition to confirming that indeed the phone is coming, the benchmarks also show quite a number of specs that are expected to come with this device.
Galaxy On7 (2016) expected specs
Apparently, Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016) will come with a small screen size of 4.8 inches. The Super AMOLED display will feature Full HD 1080p resolution, which will mean it delivers one of the best display qualities you can find on a mid-range phone.
Under the hood, the 2016 Galaxy On7 will reportedly come with an octa-core Snapdragon SoC with a clock speed of 2.0GHz and an Adreno 506 GPU. These will be backed by a RAM of 3GB, which is decent for a device that is considered a mid-range phone. As for the storage, you get 16GB of onboard memory.
The phone does not disappoint on the camera front either. It packs a decent 13MP sensor on the back while the front part has an 8MP sensor for selfies and video calls. With Samsung working hard to update its eligible devices with the new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, it has turned to this OS for the new Galaxy On7 (2016). This means buyers of this device won’t have to go through the troubles of updating the software to the latest version. Being a mid-range smartphone, Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016) will cost between $150 and $200 and it will be launched in late July and availed for purchase in mid-August, just like the rumored Galaxy Note 7.
If the benchmark tests are to be believed, the new Galaxy On7 (2016) is indeed a major upgrade to last year’s On7. The 2015 version came in with a 720p HD display and it was powered by an Exynos 3475 SoC clocked at a speed of 1.3GHz and paired with a RAM of 1.5GB. The onboard storage has also been improved from last year’s 8GB.
