Earlier this year Samsung trademarked the “J5” name leading us to believe that they were working on such a device. In fact a rumor a few months later revealed that Samsung was working on a handset called the Samsung Galaxy J5 and now thanks to the folks at SamMobile, they have managed to get their hands on the leaked specs and photos of the device.
That being said, the Galaxy J5 will not be your top of the line phone. It will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and will be accompanied by 1.5GB of RAM. There will be 8GB of onboard storage, a good portion of which will probably go to the OS and apps that come preinstalled, but thankfully that can be expanded via microSD.
As for its display, it is said to pack a 5-inch display although the exact resolution is unknown. There will be a decently-sized 2,600mAh battery that will be keeping the phone alone, and it will also feature a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera with Android 5.1 Lollipop running the show. Unfortunately an official announcement for the handset has yet to be determined.
Now given that SamMobile has in the past been rather reliable about these sorts of things, we suppose you could give them the benefit of the doubt that the images are real, but at the same time you should also take it with a grain of salt for now since it isn’t official and we reckon that Samsung could still pull the wool over our eyes at the last minute.
