The Korean giant Samsung has launched another model in the Galaxy On series of smartphones on July 2. It’s the all-new Galaxy On6 but the only thing that is new with the phone is its name, yeah you heard it right, the Galaxy On6 is basically the rebranded version of the recently launched Galaxy J6, intended for the online-only market.
The Galaxy On6 is priced at Rs. 14,490, 2K lesser than the top variant of the Galaxy J6. It is available exclusively on Flipkart and comes in two color options including Black and Blue.
Samsung has pitted this device against other budget contenders like the Asus Zenfone Max Pro, Redmi Note 5 Pro, and the Moto G6. The main highlights of this phone are its Infinity Display and the heavily advertised ‘Chat Over Video’ feature.
Now let us look at some of the Samsung Galaxy On6 Features and Specifications.
Samsung Galaxy On6 Features:
The Samsung Galaxy On6 flaunts a plastic body with a rear mounted Fingerprint scanner. The design remains unchanged from the Galaxy J6. It comes with a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED panel having a resolution of HD+ (720 x 1480 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 which for some reason is marketed as Infinity Display by the company. Despite having an AMOLED panel with vivid colors, the lower resolution of the display is a big let down given that it leads to the mediocre pixel density of 293ppi whereas the competitors offer larger and sharper displays.
Samsung has used its own octa-core Exynos 7870 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz & coupled with Mali T830 MP1 GPU to power the device. It comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage which is further expandable up to 256GB via a MicroSD card. The device should work fine as a daily driver for basic users but don’t expect it to handle high-end games. It can’t even compete with the old Snapdragon 625 in terms of performance.
In the Optics department, the Galaxy On6 gets a single 13-megapixel camera sensor at the rear, aided by an LED flash. For Selfies, we have an 8-megapixel shooter with an LED flash at the front. Both the lenses have an aperture of f/1.9. Samsung claims the cameras to perform well in low light but in reality, the performance of both the front and rear cameras is strictly average, so better look at other devices if the camera is your highest priority.
On the software front, the device runs on Samsung Experience UX 9.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo. The ‘Chat Over Video’ feature allows the users to chat with their contacts while watching a video, without halting their media experience. It is also equipped with the Face Unlock feature in addition to the fingerprint scanner.
All this is backed by a 3000mAh battery which will last through a day for most light users. connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth v4.2, Wi-Fi, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Sadly, the device skimps on basic sensors like the ambient light sensor, dual-band Wifi and the digital compass which is a common issue with budget Samsung smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy On6 Honest Opinions:
Except for the Processor, I am happy with the features. Firstly it has the FullHD+ sAMOLED Infinity Display, which is both stylish and will give an immersive effect. The fingerprint sensor + face unlock features should ensure both security and convenience in unlocking the device. The 13MP shooter should perform well, even in mid to low light conditions. The selfie camera is good too. The processor is where I feel slightly depressed, considering the price. It can't even compete with the old Snapdragon 625 in terms of performance. I feel, for the pricing, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 or the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro makes more sense.
- Excellent Camera for the Price
- Fingerprint Sensor + Face Unlock
- sAMOLED Infinity Display
- The processor isn't worth the price.
- Fingerprint Sensor Placement could be a bit more ergonomic
