Samsung's new Galaxy On5 Pro and On7 Pro offer 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage on a budget


Earlier today, the Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro and On7 Pro went official in India. The two new handsets are essentially slightly upgraded variants of the standard On5 and On7 that the manufacturer unveiled last year. The new models retain the same design and internal specs save for the memory, which receives a well-deserved boost.

Starting with the smaller of Samsung's two new budget phones, the Galaxy On5 features a 5-inch TFC LCD display running at a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. Under the hood beats the heart of an Exynos 3475, an entry-level chipset that features a 1.3GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and a Mali-T720GPU. Other Galaxy On5 specs include dual-SIM capabilities, 4G LTE, and a 2,600mAh battery.

As you may have noticed, the Galaxy On5 Pro comes with almost the exact same hardware as the standard model. The only difference between the two variants is a boost from 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage on the On5 to 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage on the On5 Pro.

When it comes to the larger Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro, the situation is similar to that of the On5 Pro. The new On7 Pro model only boosts the memory to 2GB - 16GB, but otherwise, the specs are identical to the original Galaxy On7.

The On7 Pro comes with a 5.5-inch LCD display running a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. The handset draws its powers from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset, an entry-level chipset that has become the norm for affordable smartphones, especially ones from Western markets. The Snapdragon 410 integrates a 1.2GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU and an Adreno 306GPU.
