Samsung is tight-lipped about its upcoming mid-range smartphone, the Galaxy J5 (2016), but almost every detail, from features to pricing, has been leaked. Now, a hoard of images of the device has made its way to the net, giving fans a fair idea of what to expect when it is launched.
Several pictures of Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016), which give a good view of the device from different angles — front, side and rear — have been leaked on German website WinFuture (via GSMArena). The device resembles the 2016 version of the Galaxy A-series devices released last year.
The leaked images hint at a metal frame, which is in sync with the China Mobile and China Telecom variant of the device showcased on the Samsung website (via SamMobile). The antenna slits on the frames seen in the user manuals of the device gave a strong hint that it could sport a metallic frame.
The South Korean electronics giant is yet to announce the release date of the device, but it is expected to see the light of day in June. It has got the green signal from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Chinese telecom equipment certification authority TENAA and Bluetooth SIG, so its launch should not be far away.
The device was also spotted on Zauba, a website that keeps track of imports and exports in India, with model number SM-J510FN. It was seen with a price tag of around Rs 17, 031, though it is very likely to change when it actually hits the stores.
Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) is expected to sport a 5.2-inch display with 1,280x720-pixel resolution, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, an Adreno 306 GPU, and run the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system, according to GFXBench. It is also reported it will come packed with 16GB internal memory, 2GB RAM, a 12MP main camera, and a 5MP front-snapper.
