Samsung’s upcoming budget smartphone, the Galaxy Grand Prime+ was recently benchmarked on Antutu. The phone is expected to come to India with a price tag similar to that of the Galaxy Grand Prime that was launched last year. However, Samsung has not made any official announcements on the device as of yet.
The phone was earlier referred to as the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016), but recent reports say that the phone will be called the Galaxy Grand Prime+. The Antutu benchmark shows the phone as model SM-G532F. It is powered by a Mediatek MT6367T chipset, coupled with a Mali-T720 GPU. The phone is backed by 2GB RAM and has an internal storage of 32GB.
The phone sports a 960×540 pixels resolution display, and will be running Android 6 Marshmallow out of the box. Galaxy Grand Prime+ will be coming with an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie shooter.
A first look at Galaxy Grand Prime+’s features shows the device to be a minor upgrade over last year’s model. Even as the RAM has been double and the ROM increased, it appears that the phone will have the same display as the first generation phone.
A recent report from Sanmobile, which got access to the user manual of the Galaxy Grand Prime+ has revealed that the phone will be featuring Samsung’s new Grace UX interface first seen on the Galaxy Note 7. Sadly Note 7’s production has ended given that it turned out to be a fire hazard.
Samsung had introduced the Galaxy Grand Prime to India in August 2015 at a starting price of Rs 11,100. The phone features a 5-inch qHD (960×540 pixels) display and is 4G compatible. It is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor that comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM. The phone is backed by a 2,600 mAh battery.
The new Grand Prime Plus could be another budget offering in order to strengthen the company’s market share in this competitive space.
