New Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) Spotted On GFXBench

Remember the original Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime? There are actually quite a few reasons to do so, as it was an extremely popular value choice back in 2014.

Hence, it is no surprise that Samsung is planning a successor. We first heard about it at the beginning of the month, but today's leak is a lot more substantial. It comes in the form of a GFXBench listing, which means there is a rather extensive specs sheet included..

The source recommdiscontinue that the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) will be powered by a MediaTek chipset. This is highly unorthodox for Samsung, which tends to rely on its won chips, elegant Qualcomm and Spreadtrum in the lower segment. However, the octa-core MT6737T is clearly listed on the benchimprint page.

The chip in question isn't particularly powerful with its four Cortex-A53 cores, clocked at 1.4GHz, nor very power efficient considering its 28nm process. However, it is very cheap, which definitely makes it a viable option if Samsung is really looking to haged the price in check.

The other reported specs include a 5-inch display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels - likely same as the original Grand Prime. The same goes for the capturing camera setup, which looks identical on paper - 8MP main capturing camera and 5MP selfie one. Random-Access Memory (RAM) has been upgraded to 2GB and the device will boot Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. Storage is set at 8GB, but the original did have a microSD expansion slot, which will more than likely be present this time around as well.

The Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) recently popped-up on the Geekbench website as well. But the latter doesn’t really provide any additional info, besides reaffirming the SM-G532 model number.
