Samsung Galaxy On NXT officially unveiled: octa-core CPU, 3GB RAM, aluminum body
Samsung teased the launch of yet another Android smartphone, the Galaxy On NXT, a few days ago, but little was known about the phone's specs. Today, the South Korean company introduced the Galaxy On NXT in India.

The smartphone will soon be available for purchase exclusively through major retailer Flipkart. Samsung Galaxy On NXT is not an expensive device, as customers can buy it for just Rs 18,490 ($275) outright. The smartphone is available in two color versions: black and gold.

As expected, the Galaxy On NXT features an aluminum body, as suggested by the previous teaser. The metal build of the phone gives is it a premium feel, but even the hardware under the phone's hood isn't bad either.

According to Samsung, the Galaxy On NXT is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 Octa processor, coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. The phone comes with microSD card slot for memory expansion as well.

The On NXT sports a 5.5-inch display that features full HD (1080p) resolution, while in the back there's a 13-megapixel photo snapper with LED flash. Those who like to take a selfie once in a while will be pleased to know Samsung's mid-range device comes with a decent 8-megapixel camera in the front.

Obviously, since it's been introduced in India, the smartphone offers dual-SIM compatibility, but also includes 4G LTE support and a large 3,300 mAh battery.

It's unclear if the Galaxy On NXT will be launched in other countries as well, but it's worth noting that it comes with the same specs as the Galaxy J7 Prime, which is already available in some Asian countries.

The On series is exclusively for sales through online stores hence sell at a slightly cheaper rate with more offers as freebies etc. J7 Prime is available in retail stores. On Nxt = J7 Prime, with a small increase of ROM. No idea what prevents them from using the same name. Probably they do not want to hurt retailers having to sell at a higher price than online if names were the same.

I wish they'd release the J7 Prime as an AT&T GoPhone. That things specs are pretty decent if it came in around $300.

Why do they have a billion different models? They can barely support the S series with updates but they keep wasting time and resources on all these random models.

Can't they for once make a freakin 4.5 nice spec'd phone? Why are they sabotaging their own sales when they already have a lot of 5,5 inch models. And people wonder why Apple sold so many SE's
