Samsung's upcoming budget smartphone, the Galaxy J5 (2016), has made its way through the GFXBench benchmark software and as is always the case has left a trail of specs in its wake. We expect the J5 2016 edition to be launched soon and a benchmark test is a good sign of that, while Samsung launching its sibling, the Galaxy J1 (2016), last week is also a good indicator.As for what to expect. The J5 will be beefier than the J1 in terms of specs, but this is still a smartphone very much aimed at those purchasing on a budget. The original Galaxy J5 came with a 5-inch screen, but the updated model will sport a larger 5.2-inch panel of the Super AMOLED variety that Samsung favors. As for resolution, we are looking at a 720p display that is solid but is certainly upstaged by myriad competitors these days. Other specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with 64-bit power and a clock speed of 1.2GHz. Sitting with the CPU in the engine room will be 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a so far unlisted battery. Storage fiends will be happy to note there is a micro SD card slot to expand the space, while the camera set up looks to be impressive thanks to a 13MP primary lens and a 5MP front facer. The Samsung Galaxy J5 will land with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and will likely be unveiled over the coming weeks, if not sooner. Prices and region availability are TBA.
