Samsung preps Galaxy Mega On and Grand On devices
A few weeks ago we informed our dear readers that Samsung was planning a new O-line of smartphones. Well, we now have the first two devices and what they pack under their covers.
The O-line is also known as On so do not be surprised when you see that the two new Samsung smartphones are called Mega On and Grand On. Similar to the J line of smartphones, the O line will come with entry-level hardware and will in fact be a spinoff to some Samsung smartphone lines.
Here’s what you can expect from the Grand On and Mega On devices. The Grand On smartphone is the smaller of the two. Codenamed SM-G550, the Grand On comes with a 5-inch HD display, an Exynos 3475 processor at 1.3 GHz (this is the same chip seen in the Galaxy J2), 1 GB of RAM, an 8 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera, 8 GB of internal expandable memory and a 2600 mAh battery. The device measures 142 x 71.9 x 8.5 mm and weighs 140 grams. It has a 13 MP primary camera, a 5 MP rear camera and Android 5.1 out of the box.
The Galaxy Mega On (SM-G600) sports a larger 5.5-inch HD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor at 1.2 GHz, 1.5 GB of RAM, and a 13 MP rear shooter. The device has a 5 MP camera up front as well, 8 GB of internal memory that can be expanded and a 3000 mAh battery. All this hardware is packed in a chassis that measures 151.8 x 77.5 x 8.2 mm and weighs 145 grams.
There’s no information on when the two new Samsung smartphones will be on the market but we suspect that they will be in stores very soon. Given that Samsung likes to launch smartphones almost on a daily basis, we expect more Galaxy O smartphones to follow soon.
