The Samsung Galaxy On8 is now available to buy in India, exclusively via Flipkart. To recall, the smartphone was launched last week at Rs. 15,900, and was due to go on sale from Sunday midnight via the online retailer during its Big Billion Day 2016 sale – it is now available at a discounted price of Rs. 14,900. The smartphone is available in three colour variants in the country – Black, Gold, and White.

The biggest highlight of the Samsung Galaxy On8 is its 5.5-inch full-HD Super Amoled display that was being teased ahead of its launch. The smartphone packs metal body and Samsung claims it features diamond cut metal frames. Much like recently unveiled Samsung mid-range smartphones, the Galaxy On8 will also come with features like UDS (Ultra Data Saving) mode and S bike mode as part of the company’s “Make for India” initiatives.

Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Galaxy On8 is powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz coupled with 3GB of RAM. The handset packs 16GB inbuilt storage and comes with expandable storage up to 128GB via microSD card. The 4G-enabled Galaxy On8 smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear autofocus camera with LED flash and f/1.9 aperture. There is a 5-megapixel front camera with LED flash on board as well. Backed by a 3300mAh battery, the smartphone supports dual Micro-SIMs. It measures 151.7x76x7.8mm and weighs 169 grams. Samsung says that the Galaxy On8 also supports VoLTE.

Commenting on the launch, Manu Sharma, Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India said, “The Galaxy On8 is the perfect smartphone for consumers seeking an optimal mix of style, portability and powerful performance. The device not only looks stylish but also packs a punch with a superior consumer experience with powerful processor and vivid display. We are extremely pleased to announce the new Galaxy On8 exclusively on Flipart’s Big Billion Day Sale.”
