The specs scream entry-level and are very similar to existing Samsung handsets.
Samsung’s Galaxy O lineup of smartphones is expected be launched in the future to further add to the company’s repertoire of smartphones, and specs of the first two devices have leaked today courtesy of SamMobile. The site claims the phones will be dubbed the Galaxy Grand On and the Galaxy Mega On, and could be spin-offs of the Galaxy Mega and Grand lineups instead of an individual new series.
The hardware is said to include 5-inch/5.5-inch HD displays, Exynos 3475 and Snapdragon 410 processors, 1/1.5GB of RAM, 8/16GB of internal storage, 2,600/3,000 mAh batteries, 13/8-megapixel rear cameras, and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras. Both phones should have Android 5.1 out of the box, with 8.5 mm and 8.2 mm thin bodies. SamMobile assumes that the design is what would differentiate these devices from the Galaxy E and Galaxy J series, something that would fall in line with rumors of Samsung teaming up with Oculus to work on the visual aspect of the Galaxy O devices.
However, that rumor also stated that the Galaxy O phones would be focused on virtual reality, but the hardware on the Grand On and Mega On doesn’t exactly look powerful or high-end enough to be driving a VR headset. There is no word on when these smartphones will be launched, but more information will possibly crop up during the IFA next month.
