Samsung Announces Galaxy On8 In India


Samsung has officially taken the wraps off of the newest member of their On family of smartphones, the On8. The On8, part of the company’s online-only series of devices, is equipped with a nicer body and hardware for the price that Samsung is asking for. Specifically, the phone has a metal frame that’s quite reminiscent of the design on the more premium Galaxy A9 Pro.
