It was first reported about two months ago that Samsung is working on yet another low-end handset which might be a refreshed version of the Galaxy Grand Prime, a handset that was originally launched two years ago. The Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) has already received its Wi-Fi certification and it also cleared recently by the FCC. We have now come across the user manual for the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) which reveals that this otherwise pointless handset is going to feature the new Grace UX that Samsung introduced with the Galaxy Note 7.
From what we have seen so far, there’s nothing special about the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016), it appears to be yet another low-end Samsung smartphone that people won’t even remember. Seriously, how many low-end Samsung smartphones can you name off the top of your head? The specs are nothing to write home about. The Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) is expected to feature a 5-inch HD display with a 1.4GHz processor under the hood hooked up to 1.5GB RAM aside from an 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera.
The user manual we’ve come across shows that the new Grace UX is onboard. It’s based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and offers features like Wide Selfie, Ultra Power Saving Mode, Smart Manager, Game Tools, Multi Window and more. The Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor or a theme store, Samsung Pay is missing as well. It’s unclear right now how much Samsung is going to ask for this pointless smartphone and when it’s going to be released.
