The first sale will go live on January 20th, during the Amazon "Great Indian Sale" and it will be available in Graphite Black and Champagne Gold colors.

Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime features a 5.5 Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) 2.5D Curved Glass screen protected with Corning Gorilla Glass.

The Galaxy On7 Prime comes as a dual-SIM smartphone and is powered by their Exynos 7870 chipset with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM based on the variant you choose. It is packed with 4GB RAM or 3GB RAM with 64GB or 32GB storage which is expandable up to 256GB with microSD.

The Galaxy On7 Prime broke cover on Samsung's UAE website a few weeks back, but the variant launched in India is a bit different.

Evan Blass, a well-known tech informant, says that a C-level executive at a smartphone-case maker revealed that the S9 and the larger S9 Plus will be available for preorder beginning on March 1.

A new dual-lens camera set-up on the rear and updated colours add to the appeal with white, grey and pastel blue all on show.

The phone is "one of the most affordable Samsung devices" that have the support of Samsung Pay Mini, the brand's signature payment service. For selfies, it comes with a 13 Megapixel front camera. The fingerprint sensor will still be there, and so will be the headphone jack, as Samsung doesn't yet want to go the Apple way and give up on the popular audio connector. (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.

The listings do not reveal any sort of details around the timeline of the launch, but we can expect it to arrive only after flagship series including the range and is updated with Android 8.0 Oreo. Overall, it may not sound like much of an upgrade, but Samsung could still surprise us in on key area: The camera. The front is home to an 8MP selfie shooter with f/1.7 aperture. "Galaxy On7 Prime is the flawless companion for such consumers", said Sandeep Singh Arora, Vice President, Samsung India.
