The Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro and On7 Pro are the company’s latest budget Android smartphones meant exclusively for the Indian market. Both the phones are nearly identical to the On5 and On7 launched last year but increase the memory to 2GB and double the storage to 16GB.
The Samsung Galaxy On 7 Pro is a revised version of the Galaxy On 7 launched in 2015. Galaxy On 7 pro has 2GB RAM as compared to 1.5GB of the regular On 7 and it also doubles the internal storage to 16GB. What else is different that makes this device worthy of the Pro moniker? Nothing. This is clearly another example of Samsung’s penchant of making too many smartphones and adding or removing one feature here or there to differentiate it from its other similarly priced devices.
Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro smartphone was launched in July 2016. The phone comes with a 5.50-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels.
The Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro is powered by 1.2GHz quad-core and it comes with 2GB of RAM. The phone packs 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro packs a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
The Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro runs Android 6.0 and is powered by a 3000mAh removable battery. It measures 151.80 x 77.50 x 8.20 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 172.00 grams.
The Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts two Micro-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM, 3G, 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope.
Out of the newly released smartphone by Samsung in this price range, the On 7 Pro is the best of the bunch. However, it is still average at best, and does little to differentiate itself from the competition.
