Samsung has begun retailing its Galaxy On series in India at prices the market loves. The Galaxy On5 and On7 were unveiled at Rs. 8990 (AU$191) and Rs.10,990 (AU$234), respectively. Priced aggressively, the two new handsets aim at young consumers that love high-end devices.

The past few months have seen remarkable sales for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, and now the South Korean company is focused on making the On5 and On7 market winners. Indeed, the phones are creating a lot of buzz, but let’s find out what they have to offer.

Both models have similar front and back panels and a shiny and sturdy metallic body. Apparently, there isn’t much difference between the two handsets at first sight.

A ‘Home’ button sits at the bottom of the screen along with capacitive buttons for Recents and Back. The rear panel of both devices is made of stylish leather and has a camera, speaker grille and LED flash fitted on the exterior, as reported by Gadgets NDTV.

Smartphone users love grand displays and these two handsets’ amazing visage is dominated by its 5.5-inch HD TFT screen packed with 720 x 1280 pixels. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, the phones can be expected to deliver high-speed performance.

You need not be a pro to take amazing shots since the phones’ 5 MP front camera and 13 MP rear autofocus camera will do the trick. Both phones are packed with 8 GB in-built storage capacity expandable up to 128 GB if you use a microSD card. Other features include 3000 mAH battery, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11.b/g/n.

With so many impressive features, the Galaxy On variants are likely to face tough competition from the Lenovo K3 Note and Motorola G2015. We still have to find out how the two handsets will fare in India, reported BGR.
