Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime

Samsung is reportedly gearing up to release Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime (2018) within the next few days. The rumor assumes significance with the smartphone surfacing on the official website of the FCC. Before release, all smartphones should hit the FCC and hence we expect the launch before December 31.

According to AndroidCrunch, the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime (2018) has already received all the required regulatory approvals from Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It includes not only interstate but also international communications by television, radio, satellite, and cable in the United States. The FCC document sourced by the tech portal only reveals the model number, which is SM-G571.

Based on the previously released specifications via GFXBench, the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime (2018) will be equipped with a 4.8-inch HD display, Exynos 7570 processor, Mali T720 graphics, 3GB RAM, 32GB expandable internal storage loaded with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The display provides support for five finger gesture and the processor runs at the clock speed of 1.4GHz.

Talking about the optics, the Galaxy J5 Prime (2018) will be integrated with a 12MP rear camera sensor with support for autofocus and LED Flash. The front side will have an 8MP sensor with support for LED Flash. You can also expect the addition of standard sensors and connectivity features.

The FCC listing reveals the fact that the upcoming Galaxy J5 Prime (2018) is expected to ship with a non-removable battery. However, there is no information about the capacity of the battery. The phone will be most likely integrated with a 3000mAh battery like in the case of other standard smartphones. In addition to 4G VoLTE, the smartphone also provides support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

It remains to be seen as to whether Samsung will integrate bezel-less display in a budget smartphone like the Galaxy J5 Prime (2018). The smartphone will be a deal breaker if the company infuses modern and trending display.
