Rumors have been doing rounds that Samsung Galaxy On5 2016 will be released very soon. Even though Samsung has not said a thing about refreshing this device, a series of leaks can confirm that this will indeed be happening.
Last month, India’s import and export site Zauba revealed that a device with model number SM-G570 had been shipped to the country for the purposes of R&D and testing. While this doesn’t confirm anything to do with the release of the Galaxy On5 2016, it does give out a huge hint. Last year’s Galaxy On5 has model number SM-G550. Given Samsung’s trend of coming in with incremental updates right from the specs of devices and their model numbers, it is possible that the leaked device with model number SM-G570 is probably the Galaxy On5 2016 version.
Now, in a separate report, it appears that the Galaxy On5 2016 will indeed be happening after a leak that shows off the device’s supposed spec sheet showed up courtesy of benchmarking site Geekbench.
If the website is to be believed, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy On5 2016 will indeed be an improvement over its predecessor. For starters, the mid-ranger will include Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. In addition, the RAM packed inside will be 2GB as opposed to the 1.5GB you get on the original version. Apparently, the phone will still be powered by a quad-core processor, probably one made by Samsung.
As with the Zauba report, the only detail that came out was the size of the display screen, which is the same the 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED panel used on last year’s On5.
As at the time of this writing, there are no details put forward with respect to pricing or even the phone’s availability in the U.S. However, expectations are high that this year’s Galaxy On5 will also be accompanied with a Galaxy On7 2016 as well, but there are no details about this phone’s spec sheet.
