Amazon India teases new Samsung Galaxy On handset which could be a rebranded Galaxy J7 Pro
Amazon India has started teasing a new Samsung Galaxy On handset. Considering that the Galaxy On models have always been rebranded Galaxy J units, the question is which one of the latter models is getting turned on. Or should we say, turned into an On. Amazon's Indian website mentions the phone's "Superior Performance," and a "New Way To Shop." The latter could be hinting that the phone will be equipped with Samsung Pay or another mobile payment system. Since the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro is the only model in the series with support for the complete Samsung Pay package, that could be the phone that this new Galaxy On is based on.

If this is the case, the new Samsung Galaxy On will have the same specs as the Galaxy J7 Pro. That means the Galaxy On features a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Powering the device is the Exynos 7870 chipset carrying an octa-core 1.6GHz CPU and the Mali-T830 MP2 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable storage. The cameras in back and front both weigh in at 13MP, and a 3600mAh battery keeps the lights on.

And if this isn't complicated enough, the Galaxy J7 Pro is actually the model sold in Europe as the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017), which is not the same phone as the AT&T Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017). The AT&T model is actually similar to the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016).

Yes, it's all very confusing, but let's just get to the heart of the matter; a new Samsung Galaxy On handset will soon be launched in India, available exclusively from Amazon.

I wonder why Samsung does half the things it has done. Air gestures, Bixby, Curved Edges, Re-branding, stylus, smart scroll, Group Play, Sound and Shot... List goes on... Oh well, Even I don't why I did half the things I've done...
