As compared to the Galaxy On5 Pro, this is the larger variant of the Galaxy On Series, it boasts a 5.5-inch HD TFT display with almost the same exterior. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 CPU that powers the device, while we saw its smaller variant uses a homegrown Exynos 3475 chip. The RAM is upgraded from 1.5 GB on the old Galaxy On7 to the higher 2 GB on this one.
The build is notably strong, Galaxy On7 Pro is still made tough and you get that grip to hold it tightly. The back has a faux leather pattern used from the old Galaxy On7. The design is kept nearly the same from the old Galaxy On series so there’s nothing much to talk about.
The camera seems to be the same configuration and not being updated from the old Galaxy On7, while we would love to see if the camera could perform better. Speaking more about the cameras, on the back you get a 13 MP autofocus camera with a LED flash and on flipping the device, a 5 MP camera lies on the front. The rear camera can capture up to 1080p videos.
The Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro sports a 3000 mAh battery. It can be removed by opening the back cover. You can also see the ports for which you can insert the two Micro SIM cards and a MicroSD card up to 128 GB. The mobile can support 4G network with VoLTE support. Furthermore, the device has support for S-bike mode white it doesn’t use NFC like the Galaxy J (2016) series. The S-bike mode can work without NFC but you have to do it manually from the notification bar.
The sides and the bottom are kept the same from the old series, The 3.5 mm jack, microphone, and Micro USB port is at the bottom while the top area is clean. Nothing really has changed, the right side has a power button and the left side has volume control button.
On the software side, Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro runs on the newer Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which is kind of a fair trade as there are phones still stuck on Android Lollipop, which could give the Galaxy On7 Pro as well as the Galaxy On5 Pro a kickstart at their selling. Moreover, things like the S-bike mode and VoLTE support can come into play.
That being said, Samsung is still not updating a huge, and keeping things from its old series, while its time for an upgrade since other manufacturers out there offers more for the buck. These Chinese manufacturers can offer much more than what Samsung is doing here, while we aren’t sure how Samsung would keep up with the pace in this smartphone market, the Galaxy On Pro series seem lagging behind in the game, besides we are waiting how well it goes for Samsung.
