A new smartphone from Samsung has been spotted on India’s import-export site Zauba, bearing the model number SM-G532F. According to Phonearena, the smartphone is likely to be the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016), which as the name suggests, will be the successor to the Galaxy Grand Prime launched back in 2014. The Zauba listing doesn’t reveal a lot about the upcoming smartphone except for the fact that the device will come with a 5-inch display just like its predecessor.

The Galaxy Grand Prime was launched with specifications like a 5-inch qHD (960×540 pixels) display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB internal storage that could be expanded using a microSD card.
The smartphone also featured an 8-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel camera at the front, 2,600mAh battery and connectivity options like 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS. On the software front, the smartphone runs on Android KitKat 4.4. The industry has changed a lot since 2014, and this year’s Galaxy Grand Prime smartphone is expected to be a major upgrade over its predecessor. At the very least we can expect a metallic body, full HD display, 4G LTE support and Android Marshmallow 6.0.
Besides the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016), Samsung is also believed to be working on the successors to the Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7 — called Galaxy On5 (2016) and Galaxy On7 (2016). These smartphones are expected to be launching soon, and have been spotted multiple times on benchmarking sites.
