Flipkart is planning the sales bonanza – Big Billion Days Sale during 2nd to 6th October 2016 and there will be many more deals on all category of products.
The expectations and as per teasers we can expect the new Samsung On8 to go on sale during the same period. The electronics sale is going to be on 4th October and we can expect the smartphone to be on sale on that day.
There are very few details available for the Samsung On8 though the teasers on social media boasts of a Super AMOLED Display on the device with Full HD resolution (1920*1080) . The smartphone will be 4G/VOLTE and with Dual Sim support.
Flipkart also shared today that the smartphone will come with 3 GB of Ram and will come with long lasting battery life.
The Samsung On8 is likely to have a mid range configuration and will be comparable to the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime which was launched this month in the Indian market. There are no more details available about the On8 at this time, we will update as more news flow.
Samsung J7 Prime was launched with 5.5 inch Full HD display , with 2.5D curve glass.
The smartphone comes with 3 GB of ram and runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0 along with the touch wiz UI. The smartphone also has a fingerprint scanner and 4G/Volte support. The smartphone comes with Octa-Core processor clocked at 1.6 Ghz. The J7 Prime has 13 Mega pixel rear camera with f/1.9 and there is a 8 Megapixel front camera to click selfies.
The Samsung J7 Prime is priced at Rs. 18,490 and will be available for purchase in retail as well as online.
The Samsung On8 appears to be a upper mid-range smartphone and can pack a Snapdragon 625 processor similar to the Asus Zenfone 3. Going by the current specs we can expect it to be priced close to Rs. 19,999.
We will update as more details emerge online. Clearly Samsung needs a better sales from mid range smartphones this year to make up for the massive loss from the Samsung Note 7 sales loss. It is also alleged that Samsung can launch the new Samsung Note 7 in India around 7th October when the iPhone 7 will also go on sale.
Flipkart has also done a tie up with Apple India to sell the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus directly without any middleman on their website.
