Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime (2018) leaked specs point to minor upgrade over previous model

Samsung's mid-range Galaxy On series is available for purchase in just about every region in the world. Even in North America, you can find the Samsung Galaxy On7 up for purchase on Amazon or at T-Mobile (as Galaxy J7 Prime).

The same will probably apply to the upcoming Galaxy On7 Prime (2018) model, which hasn't been made official yet. The smartphone has been recently spotted at GFXBench where it's listed along with some of its specs.

Based on the information provided by the benchmarks' database, it's clear that the Galaxy On7 Prime (2018) is just a small upgrade over the previous Galaxy On7 Prime, also known as Galaxy J7 Prime in some markets.

Apparently, the smartphone comes with the same 5.5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution and octa-core Exynos 7870 processor. Even the 13-megapixel rear-facing camera has remained the same, along with the amount of memory: 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage.

However, the new Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime (2018) features a slightly better 13-megapixel selfie camera, whereas the previous model features an 8-megapixel secondary camera in the front.

Last but not least, the Galaxy On7 Prime (2018) will ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat right out of the box. Although the previous model was launched with Marshmallow on board, Samsung promised a Nougat update will be released at some point.

Ah! Greed has no boundaries, lads! So, The Galaxy On7 Prime will ship with Android Nougat, eh? It makes one wonder; why manufacturers are reluctant to introduce Oreo? It's January 2018 and Oreo has been out for almost 6 months. More, if you consider the beta release. Are they afraid of Project Treble? Now, I'm certainly not the one to spread conspiracy theories and false rumors but something smells fishy. Honor 7X global variant has been launched with Nougat even though Huawei has finished The EMUI base on Oreo. Same goes to Galaxy A8 (2018), Nokia 6 2nd Gen, OnePlus 5T. Pretty much every phone launched in recent weeks. Now, I understand that they'll get Oreo at some point in future but what they won't get is the 'vendor partition' as they're being launched with Nougat and hence are not obligated by Google to support Treble. I guess they don't want us to keep our phones for more than 2 years! Apple accomplished the same with '#BatteryGate'. And Android Manufacturers have been doing this since the beginning of Android days and they're not going to change in a fortnight. Money, money, money! G'Day!

You can't expect a company to launch a phone with Android Oreo when their flagship is running Nougat.

"minor upgrade over previous model" How have you no learned this? All these budget/mid-range phones are just minor upgrades every year. All the do is change the processor a tiny bit, change the screen to be "better" but cost less to make, and they might change the cameras if they feel like it. They're not doing any major work like the the S8. And they move to the second newest software out, but in this case it is actually the third newest.
