Samsung is reportedly working on two new Android smartphones with rather unusual names: Galaxy Grand On, and Galaxy Mega On. According to SamMobile, these will be part of the rumored Galaxy O series (which may actually be dubbed Galaxy On). Both the Galaxy Mega On and Grand On are expected to be entry-level devices based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
It's said that the Mega On (model number SM-G600) will sport a 5.5-inch 720p display, being powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor. Moreover, the handset should come with a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. Weighing 145 grams, and measuring 151.8 x 77.5 x 8.2 mm, the Galaxy Mega On could include a 3000 mAh battery.
As for the Galaxy Grand On (model number SM-G550), this should have a 5-inch 720p display, while its processor is expected to be a quad-core 1.3 GHz Exynos 3475. Other features may include an 8 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2600 mAh battery.
Previously, we heard that the SM-G550 would be called Galaxy O5, while the SM-G600 would be the Galaxy O7. Of course, for now we can't be sure of the smartphones' final names. Also, there's no word on when Samsung is planning to release them.
P.S.: pictured above is an older Samsung handset, namely the Galaxy Grand 2.

Gotta make as many variations as possible to avoid losing patients to other companies who could easily make the same phone style, beef up the specs, and advertise it as "Samsung's Ugly Red-headed Stepchild Who Found Good Parents," and easily cash in on Samsung's attempt to saturate the market. Kinda like what Nike did with the Air Jordan line... Ppl were so sick of buying the same d*mn shoe @ sky-rocket prices that the "replica" market and their variations (mash-ups/fusions) became popular to millions. Thus, Nike went ahead & started making their own versions of the fakes. Market saturation & getting your product into EVERYONE'S HOME is better than having only a few, top-tier products; even if only to get the customer stuck in the Android ecosystem with a s^itty phone, that person may at least grow more aware of other premiums within their lines as a result.

8GB ROM? What is this, 1455 B.C? Also what's up with 1.5GB of RAM BS. Just put in 2GB and be done, what the hell. Also LOL @ the 1GB of RAM on a 720p with Touchwiz. Smells like random freezes and stuttering everywhere. woop woop, nice one Samsung.

I just a pre-ordered a Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 for $205 with a 1080 screen, 13MP rear and 5MP front facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a MediaTek Helio X10 clocked at 2.2ghz. Samsung has no business creating these lackluster devices for the masses. I would take an even lesser known Chinese device over this garbage.
