Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime is the company's latest mid-range smartphone to be launched in India. It was launched on Wednesday at an event in Gurugram. The biggest highlights of the affordable new smartphone from Samsung include Samsung Pay mini support, a new Samsung Mall visual search feature, as well as the use of 13-megapixel camera sensors on the front and the back, apart from a full metal unibody and up to 4GB of RAM. First spotted last week on the Samsung UAE site, the Galaxy On7 Prime will be available exclusively on Amazon.in.
Let's detail the Samsung Mall feature before carrying on with Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime price in India, launch offers, and its specifications. The Samsung Mall feature lets users take a photo of a product in real life, or something from their gallery, and then utilise visual search to identify the product and find it across multiple online shopping sites. Users will then be able to proceed to buy the product via Samsung Mall's 'Universal Cart' feature. Samsung Mall also lets users look at products across shopping sites in a single place - called All-in-one Shopping.
The Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime price in India starts at Rs. 12,990 for the 3GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt storage variant, and goes up to Rs. 14,990 for the 4GB RAM, 64GB inbuilt storage variant. The phone will be available in Gold and Black colour variants in India. It is exclusive to Amazon India and the Samsung Shop, and will go on sale from January 20. Launch offers include Rs. 2,000 cashback for JioMoney users, if they buy the Rs. 299 recharge for 24 months. The first Rs. 800 cashback will be given after 12 months, and the next Rs. 1,200 will be given after the next 12 months.
The dual-SIM (Nano) Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat with the Samsung Experience 8.5 customisation on top.

In the camera department, the Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime features a 13-megapixel CMOS rear sensor with an f/1.9 aperture and autofocus.
