The manual has been spotted on an official Samsung website and reveals a metal frame and a front-facing LED flash.

Although the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 have been around for less than a year, their successors are apparently ready to launch. While this duo is widely considered to be the best budget smartphone lineup from Samsung, it already looks like the updated variants will continue to wear the crown. As the manual suggests, the J5 (2016) and J7 (2016) will use a metallic frame, thus becoming the first budget handsets by Samsung to do so.

According to SamMobile, "The manuals don’t exactly reveal anything in terms of the devices, but we can once again see antenna slits on the phones’ frames, slits that are only required on metallic devices." Additional specs and features include a removable battery, a front-facing LED flash, Android 5.1 Lollipop with Samsung's music player app preloaded, NFC connectivity, but apparently there is no trace of a fingerprint scanner.

Although there is no official statement about these handsets' expected launch, they should hit the market soon. Both the Galaxy J5 (2016) and the Galaxy J7 (2016) have been spotted at the FCC and the Bluetooth SIG already, so it is very likely to see them unveiled later this month.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
