The smartphone features a 5.5-inch TFT HD display, which is bigger than its younger sibling Galaxy On5 (5-inch). Samsung didn’t boast a home-grown Exynos SoC in this device yet used a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 quad-core 1.2 GHz processor. The 1.5 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage aren’t upgraded and kept the same as what we have seen in the Galaxy On5. However, the camera is refreshed to 13 MP on the back and 5 MP on the front side. As the phone is made of plastic materials, the body appears to solidly build.
The design seems to be quite old. The back uses a faux leather plastic same from the Galaxy On5, but slightly larger in size. The 3000 mAh battery is removable. The back camera 13 MP with LED flash. The single speaker is located at the back along with a dull Samsung logo.
There are a couple of sensors on the front as well as a 5 MP front camera that captures 1080p videos. The navigation buttons do not light up and vibrate just like the Galaxy On5.
The left side has volume rockers while on the other side there is a power key to unlock the device.
There’s nothing on the top of the device. The bottom consists on a USB port, a microphone, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
The Galaxy On7 comes with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Samsung may give marshmallow updates in the future, but we aren’t sure about it. On the first use, the phone doesn’t seem to be lagging on the performance side, the animation transitions were smooth while switching and multi-tasking with apps.
Samsung did launch this series in a ₹10,000 price segment which is budget oriented. The price of Samsung Galaxy On7 is ₹10,990 and there are two different colors variants, Black, and Gold.
