Samsung set to launch the Flipkart-exclusive Galaxy On6 on July 2
A couple of days ago, IANS from India reported about the upcoming launch of a new Galaxy On series phone with an Infinity display in the first week of July. Proving the report right, online shopping portal Flipkart is now teasing the launch of a new Galaxy On smartphone on its website. The teaser page says the device is set to be revealed on July 2 at 12.30 PM Indian time.
While Flipkart is not revealing any other information, almost everything significant about the new smartphone is already known from the earlier report. The device in question is reportedly a Galaxy On6, and it will be the first On series model to sport an Infinity display.
A rebranded Galaxy J6?
Samsung rebrands some of its Galaxy J series offerings as On series smartphones and retails them exclusively online to counter some of the Chinese brands dominant in the online shopping space. The Galaxy On6 seems to be following the same strategy as it appears to be a slightly tweaked and rebranded Galaxy J6 for Flipkart customers
As per the earlier report, the Galaxy On6 variant with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB memory will cost around INR 15,000 ($218). For comparison, a similar variant of the Galaxy J6 is priced at INR 16,500 ($240). So, Samsung may be pricing the new Galaxy On smartphone cheaper than the Galaxy J series counterpart as it did many times in the past.
