Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) hits Geekbench, reveals quad-core CPU and 1.5GB of RAM on board

Earlier this month, India's Zauba web site alerted us to the testing of a device that appeared to be the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) based on its model number. The OG Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime was model number SM-G531, and the phone listed on Zauba was SM-G532. Thanks to a benchmark test that was run on the sequel, we have some information pertaining to the phone's specs.

The new evidence appears in the form of a Geekbench test for model SM-G532, the same model that was listed on Zauba. The benchmark test revealed that the device is powered by a chipset sporting a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.44GHz. The handset will be equipped with 1.5GHz of RAM. The OG model was powered by a Snapdragon 410 SoC and also featured 1.5GB of RAM. Thanks to the Zauba post, we know that the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) will feature a 5-inch screen, just like the first-generation model. Android 6.0.1 will be pre-installed.

The phone was put through three tests and the final run through produced the best score. The highest single-core test result was 599 score, with a 1790 tally for the multi-core test.

Hopefully it comes out on American Movil networks (TracFone, net10, straight talk). Don't follow the ugly C Series please.

Chip looks like a 64-bit successor to Exynos 3475. Samsung really likes all these random chips from different companies: Spreadtrum SC8830, SC9830, Marvell PXA1908, its own Exynos 3475, and the QS410

1.5 GB no thanks! My Redmi Note bought at 2014 for $130 has 2GB Ram.
