While the super-high-end Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge typically get all the praise for Samsung’s recent sales resurgence following a tough 2015, the nature of today’s global smartphone landscape makes it impossible to rule without a robust mid-range portfolio as well.

That’s where Galaxy J-series handhelds have come in, alongside the A family, and even the On5 and On7, despite the latter two’s regional exclusivity. The imminence of Galaxy On7 and On5 sequels bears witness to the original models’ success, India and China apparently leading the list of markets targeted by 2016 editions.

Likely to be powered by either a Snapdragon 625 or Exynos 7870 processor, depending on your residence, the Galaxy On7 (2016) should also accommodate a fingerprint reader, presumably built into an otherwise bland-looking physical home button.

No big deal, you say? Think again, as the only non-flagships from Samsung to currently recognize fingerprints for speedy device unlocks and safe mobile payment authorization are the 2016 A5 and A7 installations. We figure the second-gen On7 will be priced lower than both those metallic beauties, probably carrying the same plastic construction as its predecessor, a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 3GB RAM, and 13MP rear camera. Fingers crossed for a sub-$250 MSRP!
