Samsung is quite busy in the low-end and mid-range areas of the market these days, and the updated Galaxy J5 Prime is one of the handsets that should hit the market soon. Although it has surfaced online already, now it seems that the arrival of the Galaxy J5 Prime (2017) is imminent, since this smartphone has just been spotted on the website of the Federal Communications Commission.

As it usually happens with the FCC listings, there is no set of specs or other details concerning the Galaxy J5 Prime (2017). On the other hand, a few earlier leaks and appearances in various benchmark databases revealed that this handset should keep most of the specs of its predecessor, including the quad-core Exynos 7570 processor, 3 GB of memory, 32 GB internal storage with microSD support, as well as a 13 MP main camera. The front camera is expected to be slightly improved and to move up from 5 MP to 8 MP. The size of the display is said to be around the 5-inch value. 

While there is no word to say about the battery or the operating system at this stage, we expect a power pack able to deliver at least 3,000 mAh and at least Android Nougat, although it would be nice to see it launch with Android Oreo onboard. 

Sadly, the technical details have not been confirmed yet, but we will probably find out all there is to know about this handset by the end of 2017.

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.
