It appears that Samsung are ready to bring back the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, which was quite a successful model in 2014.
This value for money buy has been replaced by a sea of launches in recent years. However, the 2016 edition of the Galaxy Grand Prime is all set to come back with a new design and better specifications after being spotted on the GFX benchmark tests. The specifications of the device clearly reveal that the Galaxy Grand Prime 2016 will be positioned as a budget friendly device once again. For this reason, it is all set to opt for the MediaTek processors to keep costs down.
The phone is expected to come with a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. While this may not seem great in today’s day and age when 720p and even full HD screens are making an appearance in the budget segment, Samsung are likely to incorporate technologies like Super AMOLED in order to make it more exciting and appealing to the user. Incidentally, the resolution is the one used by the original Galaxy Grand Prime two years ago.A quad core CPU with a clock speed of 1.4 GHz is seemingly used in the device according to the benchmark tests.
This average processor is expected to be sufficient to handle the android 6.0 out of the box. The processor will be supplemented by 2 GB of RAM while the internal storage is around 8 GB. It remains to be seen if Samsung will announce a version with higher internal storage capacity because much of the 8 GB is taken up by the android operating system. Just like the display, Samsung also appears to be interested in not offering any updates in terms of the camera. The rear camera will have the same eight-megapixel sensor just like the front facing five-megapixel camera.
One of the major disadvantages of the phone may turn out to be the processor. It is not the most efficient in terms of power delivery and battery usage. As a result, Samsung may compensate the phone with a larger battery since thickness is not a major factor in this price point. The phone’s ability to offer android 6.0 user experience straight out of the box will be a major advantage. It may not necessarily receive update to the recently launched Android Nougat because of lack of power.
