Refreshing its budget segment, Samsung India on Wednesday launched Galaxy On7 Prime - the first smartphone from the South Korean tech giant that comes with a "Make for India" feature named Samsung Mall.

The Galaxy On7 Prime will be available in two colours - black and gold - and will go on sale starting January 20.

The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will most likely inherit the 18.5:9 aspect ratio design of the previous model Galaxy S8 and will offer a 5.8 inch/6.2inch Quad-HD Plus resolution and Super MOLED Infinity Display (570ppi / 529ppi).

If previous launch patterns are any indication, Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime is expected to go on sale on the day of the announcement. Samsung Mall, an image search app available on the smartphone allow users to snap an image of a product or use an image from the gallery and search for it across different online shopping websites like Amazon, Jabong, ShopClues and TataCliq. Now, the Galaxy A8+, sporting a dual front camera set-up, is doing that for the company in the field of dual selfie camera set-up. We wonder why Samsung launched the device with Nougat instead of Oreo.

New WhatsApp feature boosts video-watching for users
Now, Xiaomi has finally come out in the open and has acknowledged the problem in an official statement issued to Techook . Users have claimed that they are getting an error message saying "This version of WhatsApp became Obsolete ".

Galaxy S9 may come with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner in a centralized location unlike Galaxy S8's scanner which is to the right of the camera module, making it a little hard for user to find it. And there's a fingerprint sensor on the front integrated into the home button.

The Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime has been priced at Rs. 12,990 for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant, and Rs. 14,990 for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage model. (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. For the most part, it's the Galaxy J7 Prime with a new front camera and upgraded software. Both the cameras feature f/1.9 aperture and work in tandem to offer regular dual-camera goodies like the portrait mode, bokeh effect, live-focus, stickers, etc. The Galaxy On7 Prime also has a Micro-USB port and a 3.5mm audio jack for headsets.

Moving on to the design of the Galaxy On7 Prime, this phone looks a lot like the previously launched Galaxy J7 Prime.

"Galaxy On7 Prime is made for the Indian consumer who is constantly multitasking and on-the-move". The device comes with the all-new Samsung Mall which is a visual search engine.
