In a series of tweets, Samsung teased the launch and also confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy On smartphone will be Flipkart exclusive. The South Korean company has so far not revealed the name of the upcoming handset.
The e-commerce website has launched a dedicated page ahead of the launch and is referring it as Samsung Galaxy On Nxt. We expect Samsung to launch the Galaxy On7 (2016) smartphone considering the handset was unveiled in China last month. In a teaser tweet, Samsung said that the next Galaxy On smartphone is powered by an octa-core processor and features a metallic body, in line with the 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor and metal body of the Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016).
The Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016) was launched in China at CNY 1,599 (approximately Rs. 16,000) and the India pricing of the handset can be expected to be around the same range.
