Updated Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime gets approved by FCC, announcement may come soon
An upgraded Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime model is expected to be revealed very soon. The smartphone was recently spotted online, but the existence of the so-called Galaxy J5 Prime (2018) wasn't confirmed until today.
Also known as Samsung SM-G571, the smartphone has just received certification at FCC (Federal Communications Commission), which somewhat confirms the device is about to go official.
No additional details about the phone's specs have been listed at FCC, so we're left with what appeared in the benchmark. Apparently, the smartphone will ship with Android Nougat on board, but we don't rule out an Oreo update.
Even though it's an improvement over the last year Galaxy J5 Prime, the smartphone is far from being impressive. It sports a 4.8-inch display with HD resolution and a quad-core Exynos 7570 processor.
Also, the smartphone is rumored to pack 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, which makes it quite alright for a mid-range device. The back side features a 12-megapixel camera, whereas in the front there's a secondary 8-megapixel selfie snapper.
The documents filed at FCC also confirm the Galaxy J5 Prime (2018) comes with a non-removable battery, but there's no info on the capacity.
Considering the original Galaxy J5 Prime was launched last year, there's a high chance the new model will make its debut by the end of 2017.
