Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime was an extremely popular value pack in 2014. So, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the Korean giant is planning for its successor. We reported about it in the beginning of this month and now a new leak is out telling a lot more about this handset. This leak comes from the GFXBench benchmarking website, which means that there is an expensive specifications sheet involved with this handset.
A source suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) will come powered by MediaTek chipset. This is unorthodox for the Korean giant as it always rely on its own chipset and uses Qualcomm and Spreadtrum chipsets in its low range phones. An octa-core MT6737T is displayed on the list of the benchmark page. But this chipset is not that powerful with its four Cortex A53 cores, with 1.4 GHz clock speed. Neither are they powerful with their 28nm process. However, it is really cheap and makes it a viable option if Samsung is looking forward to keep a check on the price of this smartphone.
Some other specifications for this new smartphone include a 5 inch display with 540 x 960 pixels resolution, which is same as in original Grand Prime. The same goes with the camera of this handset which looks similar to the original phone. There is an 8MP primary camera and 5MP selfie camera for clicking high quality selfie images. Samsung’s Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) will get a 2GB RAM for faster processing and runs on the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. There is an 8GB internal storage capacity but there is a chance to get a microSD card slot, which was also available in the original Grand Prime. This will help the users to extend the memory size by using a memory car but it is still not known that to what extent.
Recently, the Galaxy Grand Prime popped up on the Zauba website but there no additional information available, just that the phone will get SM-G532 model number.
