Samsung is not willing to reveal the details of the Grand Prime (2016), but almost everything about the device, including specifications have surfaced online. It appears like the device will be launched earlier than expected, as it has already passed the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval in the United States.

A new Samsung device with model number SM-G532, believed to be the Grand Prime (2016), has been spotted on Zauba, a website that tracks imports and exports in India, giving a hint that the release date of the device may not be far off. The device is seen with a 5-inch display and a price tag of Rs 13,686 (price may differ at the time of launch). 

Samsung's original Galaxy Grand Prime, that was released almost two years ago, has model number SM-G531, so the device with model number SM-G532 is very likely to be the successor the original.

The Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) is spotted with a Mediatek MT6737T quad-core processor clocking at 1.4GHz, a 2GB RAM, and an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system on Geekbench. It is also seen with a 5-inch display, a 540x960 pixels, an 8MP main camera, and a 5MP front-snapper.

It may be mentioned that the Galaxy Grand Prime sports a 5-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with 540x960 pixels (220 ppi pixel density), powered by a Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410/Spreadtrum SC7730 (Value Edition) processor, and runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat (upgradable to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop) operating system. It also features an 8GB internal memory expandable up to 64GB via microSD card, a 1GB RAM, an 8MP main camera with f/2.4 aperture, autofocus and LED flash, a 5MP front snapper with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2,600mAh battery.
