Samsung is constantly expanding its repertoire of budget and mid-range smartphones, and now another affordable smartphone is coming up. Following the annual upgrade cycle, Samsung is reportedly planning to launch the successor to last year's Galaxy Grand Prime with marginal upgrades. The release date of the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) isn't final yet, but there are sufficient signs of the handset being launched soon.

According to the latest report, Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) reportedly passed the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval in the United States, which regulates radio, TV, wire, satellite and cable communications in the U.S. It means the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) is one step closer to the official launch, The Mobile Indian reported.

While Samsung hasn't officially confirmed the unannounced handset's existence, media reports suggest the launch is expected to happen by the end of September. The latest leak isn't the first for the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016), which has been spotted on Geekbench and GFX Benchmarking sites as well as India's import-export site, Zauba.

The Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) was spotted on Zauba under the model number SM-G532 and carried a price tag of Rs. 13,686, which is not the final one. But the recent leaks related to the upcoming mid-range smartphone have revealed quite a lot about its specifications and features.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) is said to sport a 5-5.1-inch display with qHD resolution, a 1.4GHz MediaTek quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB storage and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It will also pack an 8MP primary camera with LED flash and a 5MP front snapper, which remains identical to its predecessor.

In terms of design, another report suggested Samsung might include a full metallic design for the new Grand Prime handset. But nothing concrete has been announced by the company at the moment. Stay tuned for updates.
