Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime 2018 Specifications Leaked in Benchmark Listing
Samsung’s budget smartphone lineup has had a lot of competition over the years since the rise of the likes of Xiaomi and Lenovo’s budget lineup. The Galaxy J5 Prime has long been Samsung’s flag bearer in the sub 15K category and the next year’s J5 Prime 2018 will be an incremental upgrade over the J5 Prime 2016 edition. New benchmark listing sheds light on what we can expect from the upcoming J5 Prime 2018 variant.
According to the listing, the J5 Prime 2018 will have a 4.8-inch display with a 120 x 720 px resolution amounting to a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. While the flagship lineup and presumably the mid-rangers of 2018 will have display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, it appears that Samsung is not quite convinced to compete with the likes of the LG Q6 which has a taller display.
The SM-G571 was benchmarked as being powered by the Exynos 7570 SoC, the same Samsung-made chipset found inside its predecessor, Galaxy J3 (2017). The chipset is listed as running at a maximum operating frequency of 1.4GHz, which is in line with its previously commercialised configurations. The device will have 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of onboard storage which will be expandable via microSD card.
The device was also identified as having a 12MP primary camera capable of shooting 4K photos and 1920 x 1080 px videos along with an unspecified flash unit. The smartphone also appears to sport an 8MP camera with 1080p video support. The benchmark has listed it as a 7MP camera but, it is likely that the phone will have an 8MP sensor.
There are no firm availability details for the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime 2018, with an early 2018 launch being the most plausible scenario.
