While early reports indicated that Samsung’s unannounced Galaxy O series of smartphones will be VR-centric and made in collaboration with Oculus VR, a new report now reveals the smartphones might just be part of two mid-range offerings by the firm. The smartphones previously tipped as Galaxy O7 and Galaxy O5 are now expected to be launched as the Galaxy Grand On and Galaxy Mega On.
The report also gives purported specifications of the two Android 5.1 Lollipop-based handsets, said to be new versions of the Galaxy Mega and Galaxy Grand handsets. While the Galaxy Mega On is said to carry the codename SM-G600, the Galaxy Grand On is said to be the SM-G550, as per Sammobile.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega On, as per the report, features a 5.5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display and will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, clubbed with 1.5GB of RAM. The device would house a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The smartphone’s 8GB inbuilt storage would also be expandable (unspecified limit). Measuring 151.8×77.5×8.2 mm, the smartphone will weigh 145 grams and will be backed by a 3000mAh battery.
As for the Samsung Galaxy Grand On, the smartphone would feature a smaller 5-inch HD display and would come powered by the company’s own quad-core Exynos 3475 CPU clocked at 1.3GHz. Besides sporting 1GB of RAM, the handset will house 8-megapixel rear camera and would be backed by a 2600mAh battery. The front-camera sensor and the inbuilt storage would be the same as the Galaxy Mega On. The Galaxy Grand On is said to measure 142×71.9×8.5 mm and weigh 140 grams. However, since Samsung is yet to comment on the handsets, we urge readers to take the above leaked details with a pinch of salt.
