Samsung has recently introduced the phones in the galaxy A Series. The A3, A5, A7 and A9 feature metal and glass bodies that looked beautiful similar to the galaxy s6. We do know that Samsung is known for flooding the market with similar specked phones. This time it’s the Galaxy J5 (2016) phone that is updated for 2016.
With the rise of competing manufacturers from china, Samsung has to do something different if it had to stay relevant in the smartphone game. But looking at the specifications, there isn’t much new here. The internals are mostly similar to the galaxy J5 (2015) and have been slightly updated. The specifications of the Galaxy J5 (2016) leaked via GFXBench benchmark test.
The model number associated with the Galaxy J5 (2016) is SM-J510x. the phone comes with a 5.2 inch display with a resolution of 1280×720. The type of the screen technology is not mentioned. There is a 12 MP camera with led flash for better low light pictures. A 5 MP selfie camera is provided. The quad-core snapdragon 410 powers the device. the memory capacity is at 16 GB out of which 11 GB is user accessible and 2 GB of ram is provided. The pricing details are not available.
The Galaxy J5 (2016) comes with android 5.1.1 lollipop out of the box. Would have been nice to see the phone running marshmallow since it has been out for quite some time now.
With decrease in the sales of its smartphones, Samsung has decided to release less number of phone models and in the year 2015, it has actually released 33% less phone when compared to 2014. but releasing similar phone won’t make any difference for Samsung. Bringing high end features such as fingerprint reader and full HD display might help its low end phones.
