The upcoming Galaxy device will be an online exclusive and feature super AMOLED display. It is likely to sport 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage, industry sources told IANS on 27 July.
Notably, this would be the tech giant's second online exclusive smartphone in two months.
Earlier this month, the company launched Galaxy On6 online, which was its first "Infinity Display" mid-segment smartphone to be sold exclusively on an e-commerce platform.
Samsung India has sold over 20 lakh units of its recently-launched Galaxy J8 and J6 mid-segment smartphones in the country. According to the company, it sold 50,000 units of Galax J6 and J8 each day.
Galaxy J6 was launched on May 22 while Galaxy J8 was introduced on July 1.
The South Korean giant toppled Xiaomi in the second quarter of 2018 with 29 percent market share in the country, said Counterpoint Research.
