Galaxy On NXT is no different from J7 Prime or On8, barring price


Samsung India today launched the new Galaxy On NXT Android smartphone. The device is part of the On series, last being the Galaxy On8.

Galaxy On NXT features a 5.5-inch display Full HD display and 2.5D Gorilla Glass. It is powered by 1.6 GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage, expandable up to 256GB.

The device will be sold exclusively on Flipkart for a price of Rs 18,940 ($283).

On the connectivity front, On NXT supports 4G LTE (VoLTE-ready), in line with Samsung’s recent announcement that all its upcoming devices will be 4G capable. This even includes the entry-level segment. The On Nxt also supports GPS, Glonass, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1.

For photo enthusiasts, On NXT has a 13MP rear camera with f/1.9 aperture and an 8MP front camera. The phone is backed by a 3300 mAh Li-ion battery.

Besides the average features, the phone does not appear to be a winner. It has close resemblance to Galaxy J7 Prime, which sells at Rs 18,790 ($281). The J7 Prime as well has an all-metal unibody design, 5.5-inch display, 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor clubbed with 3GB RAM. However, the internal storage is lower at 16GB. And ditto as On NXT, the device sports a 13M rear camera and 8MP shooter in the front.

Interestingly, Samsung’s newest device comes just a month after it unveiled the Galaxy On8. The On8 has more or less same features as On Nxt. But if price is a concern, the On8 is a real steal at Rs 15,900 ($237). Otherwise, it is the same on the inside, with a different packaging.
