Specifications of Samsung's 2016 series Galaxy On5 budget smartphone have surfaced online, revealing that the new device will have huge upgrade over its predecessor.

Samsung's rumoured Galaxy On5(2016) first broke covers for the first time last week, when it made an appearance on Zauba, an Indian logistic company. In the import manifest, the device bearing model number SM-5700 was shipped from South Korea to India for evaluation and R&D (Research & Development) purposes. There was no mention of the device's features.

Now, the same handset has made an appearance on Geekbench performance testing site. It scores 646 and 2000 points on single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. That is an impressive mark sheet for a budget smartphone.

As per the Geekbench site, the SM-G570F (Galaxy On5 2016) houses 2GB RAM, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, universal7570 motherboard with ARM-based 1.4GHz quad-core processor. Though there is no word on the moniker of the processor, 7570 numerical code does hint that CPU might be Samsung's very own Exynos series, as there is no Qualcomm Snapdragon processor in that numerical series.

Other key features such as screen size, camera, storage and battery capacity is yet to be ascertained.

There is no word when the Galaxy On5 (2016) will be released but it is certain to make its debut along with Galaxy On7 (2016) like the 2015 series models last year.
