Firmware version Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime (2018) is also already known is Android 7.1 from Google, while there has always been Android 8.1 Oreo. The Galaxy On7 Prime will be the first Samsung phone to ship with Samsung Mall: an app that apparently wants you to shop till you drop.

The Galaxy On7 Prime is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor clubbed with up to 4GB RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage which is further expandable by up to 256GB via a dedicated micro-SD card slot.

The smartphone features a 13MP (f/1.9) rear camera with LED flash and a 13MP (f/1.9) front shooter.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime and the Galaxy Tab E 8.0 were launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.


Samsung India is getting aggressive in the smartphone space. "It makes use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) for doing this", Sanjay Razdan, Director (Product Planning), Samsung India told reporters at the event, also attended by Bollywood actor Kriti Sanon. However, it appears the dual-camera set may be exclusive to the rear camera on the S9 Plus. It is quite unusual to see that Samsung is planning on upgrading these devices to Android 8.0 Oreo, as Samsung usually doesn't provide more than one OS update to its entry-level and mid-range smartphones.

When it comes to camera it's pretty fine too. It comes in two RAM Storage models: 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, 3GB RAM with 32GB storage. It has a metal unibody design with fingerprint sensor in the Home button. The device has 3,300 mAh battery and runs on Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box. (Unfortunately, the device doesn't use the newer Exynos 7872 SoC, which is substantially faster.) In India, it'll come with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage. (Aperture refers to the size of the opening that light passes through.) Offering two different apertures at f/1.5 and f/2.4 (as listed on the leaked box) would make it possible to take in extra light in darker settings. Galaxy On7 Prime is the ideal companion for such consumers. Galaxy On7 Prime promises a smarter life as it comes with advance design and superior performance. Overall, it may not sound like much of an upgrade, but Samsung could still surprise us in on key area: The camera.

"Galaxy On7 Prime is made for the Indian consumer who is constantly multitasking and on-the-move".
