Samsung Galaxy O7 captured by a benchmark again, reveals mid-range innards
A month ago, rumors emerged claiming that Samsung is working on a new 'Galaxy Grand On' and 'Galaxy Mega On' lines of devices. Now, one of these two — likely the Mega On — was spotted passing through GFXBench's test suite, once again revealing mid-range specs.

We say once again, as the so-called Galaxy O7 (SM-G600x) was caught fooling around with AnTuTu a while ago, and the specs snapshot is identical to what GFXBench reports today. We've got an unremarkable, mid-range phone, with a 720p display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with an Adreno 306 GPU, a single gig of RAM, 8GB of storage — almost certainly expandable — and a 13MP/5MP camera combo. Going back to the screen, GFXBench reports both a 5.8" and a 5" panel, suggesting that two models of the family were captured at some point, though we suspect the smaller one is the Galaxy O5.

If that size ends up being legit, we'll finally have reason to lower our arched eyebrows, as we were quite confused as to how Samsung was planning on positioning the O7, which was previously rumored to be a 5.5-incher. That's because its specs sheet would be essentially identical to another member of a fairly new product line: the Galaxy A7. Obviously, we can't be sure that GFXBench has properly reported on this aspect of the device, but it's definitely not impossible that Samsung is prepping a really large phone for the masses.

Amazing how Samsung phones with 720p displays are considered mid-ranged, while some phones with a 750p display is considered highend.

Anyways, what is this series replacing? I though Samsung was downsizing their portfolio of phones.

So we have the A series, E series, J series, O series, S series and the Note. What's the Next Big Thing!?

Seriously? You're not stupid so I really don't understand these lame digs at Apple.

Anything below 4.8" can get away with a 720p display and still be called high end, it's the combination of screen size and resolution that matters.

Do you really think a 720p look's good on a 5" or 5.8" display? I don't.

I agree with you. 720p screen resolution for the SG E7 with 5.5 inch screen display look very ugly.

720p is good in 4.2 inch screen display but if you the screen at 5 to 5.5 inch with a 720p screen resolution is not good.

Lollipop is here and M will come next month in selected phone model only and maybe after 6-7 months will have 30% update for M OS.

You seriously must be one of the biggest iPhone fans to bring it up in EVERY single article you post in. It's okay if it's true, it's not like we're all not going to think of you anything less than a troll and complainer.

Another day, another crappy Android phone. Resolution alone doesn't make a phone high or low end. Its about the whole package.
