Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) appears on GFXBench with 5.2-inch screen?

A handset with the model number SM-J510x has just been run through the GFXBench benchmark test. Considering that the SM-J500 is the Samsung Galaxy J5, the phone that went through the GFXBench test could be the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016). After all, it was just a couple of days ago that the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) was officially unveiled by the manufacturer.

According to GFXBench, the new version of the Galaxy J5 features a larger 5.2-inch screen, compared to the 5-inch glass on the original model. The resolution remains the same at 720 x 1280, and no changes are seen under the hood where the Snapdragon 410 SoC will reside. That means that the phone will be driven by a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, and the Adreno 306 GPU. It also appears that the camera combo remains the same on the new version of the phone. That means that the Galaxy J5 (2016) will feature a 13MP rear-facing camera, with a 5MP camera adorning the front of the device.

The amount of RAM on the next-gen Galaxy J5 receives a small boost to 2GB from the 1.5GB that the original model sports. The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) is equipped with 16GB of internal storage, according to the benchmark test, which compares to the 8GB of native memory found on the OG Samsung Galaxy J5. Android 5.1.1 will be pre-installed on the next-generation unit.

The Samsung Galaxy J series was well received last year, helping Samsung continue its reign as the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Like it did with the Galaxy J1 (2016), Samsung is bumping up some of the specs on the Galaxy J5 (2016) to strengthen the appeal of the model.

Thanks for the tip!
