A terminal with the codename SM-J510x has been seen on the GFXBench. Considering that its little brother, the SM-J500 is the Samsung Galaxy J5, the smartphone previewed on the performance measurement tool might well be the Samsung Galaxy J5, but in its 2016 version.
Samsung Galaxy J5 (2015)
After the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) officialized a few days ago, a new smartphone of the J range reveals a little more. This is the new version of the J5, according to the information the tool gives us, the phone would have a larger screen, compared to its predecessor, of 5.2 inches, whereas the first version was only 5 inches. The resolution would remain the same in HD (1280×720).
No change on the CPU either, the Snapdragon 410 is still there. This means that the terminal will have a quad-core clocked at 1.2 GHZ, coupled with the Adreno 306 graphics chipset. It also appears that cameras will remain the same as its big brother, namely a 13MP rear camera, coupled with a 5MP front camera.
The RAM has been improved a little, with 2 GB, whereas the original version of the phone had only 1.5 GB of RAM. A gain of 500 MB is therefore present.
In terms of storage, it is doubled to 16 GB (11-12 GB real) for this version instead of 8 GB for the previous version. In terms of software, it will be equipped with Android Lollipop 5.1.1 with the traditional TouchWiz overlay installed. If you wish, you can find the complete characteristics of its predecessor
The Galaxy J series, which represents the mid-range segment, was well received last year, helping Samsung continue to dominate as the manufacturer with the world’s broadest range of smartphones.
As he did with this year’s Galaxy J1, Samsung is upgrading the specifications of its J5 a little to make it more appealing. We still don’t have any price indications, but you should still know that the 2015 J5 was priced at €229, and we hope the same will be true for this version.
