Samsung has released its Galaxy On5 back in November 2015 and its successor will arrive exactly one year later. Today, we will compare these two smartphones, but keep in mind that the specifications of the Galaxy On5 (2016) have not been confirmed yet.


The Galaxy On5 measures 142.3×72.1×8.5mm and weights 149 grams. The device has an aluminum frame and a plastic shell with a faux leather finish which is curved on the edges. On the other hand, the Galaxy On5 (2016) is slimmer and lighter as it measures 142.8×69.6×8.1mm and weights 142 grams. Samsung has understood that users hate the faux leather pattern and it replaced it with metal on the new model.


The Galaxy On5 has a TFT display of 5-inch that supports a resolution of 1280×720 pixels at 288 ppi. The Galaxy On5 (2016) will come a similar screen that will have the same size and resolution, but it will support a higher pixel density of 294 ppi.
