Located at the rear of Samsung Galaxy On8 is a 13MP snapper with autofocus and LED flash. There is also a 5MP at the front with LED flash. The smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. This dual-SIM smartphone supports 4G VoLTE and is backed by a 3300mAh battery. Samsung Galaxy On8 comes with a price tag of Rs. 15,900. It will be available in three color variants — Gold, Black, and White. It will go on sale on October 2 on Flipkart as a part of its Big Billion Days sale.

Meanwhile, Samsung has made a commitment to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in India that it will not sell phones manufactured before September 15 to Indian consumers owing to the safety concerns raised by Samsung Galaxy Note 7. “Samsung and DGCA will meet tomorrow (Tuesday) again, at 10.30 am, where Samsung executives will examine the device and battery in detail, which will be provided to them after basic clean up,” Economic Times quoted an unnamed person aware of the developments.

Samsung recently unveiled the two more smartphones under its “On” series in India – the Galaxy On7 and Galaxy On5.

Nice phone actually. High time Samsung stopped churning out lousy mid rangers. Chinese are killing them.
