Recently, Samsung’s 2016 edition of the wallet-friendly Galaxy J5 was spotted at the Zauba DB, which keeps track of the import/export details pertaining to India. In general, many OEMs send their handsets for testing and evaluation to global delivery centers in India prior to the release. Meanwhile, the same device has silently made a visit to the GFXBench site, revealing full configurations.

According to the benchmark testing site, the Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 tied to the model number SM-J510x will apparently sport a 5.2-inch display, bundled with 720p screen resolution. From the hardware end, this device will come powered by a Snapdragon 410 chip, working in tandem with quad-core Cortex-A53 processor, running at 1.2 GHz.

Qualcomm's Adreno 306 takes care of the graphics, while the handset comes backed by 2 GB of RAM. Not Marshmallow but Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS runs the handset.

When it comes to camera specification, a 12 or 13-megapixel rear-facing sensor will be mounted with LED flash, in addition to a generous 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies. This phone will apparently come equipped with 16 GB of built-in storage space.

Speaking of release date, the predecessor J5 was announced in June last year. Therefore, it is safe to assume that, the 2016 version of the handset will also be released at the same time frame this year.

As always, readers are advised to take the reported Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 specifications and release date with the proverbial pinch of salt as the South Korean tech giant has not confirmed any information so far.
