Back in May, TENAA (the Chinese equivalent of the US FCC) certified the Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7, leaking specs and images of the devices. The images, however, are of low-quality, requiring us to take a second look to make out the smartphones’ design. Now, thanks to SamMobile, we get to see the unannounced Galaxy J5 in all of its glory.
From what we can see, the Galaxy J5 borrows design elements from the entry level Galaxy J1, sporting a plastic body and a removable rear cover. The difference between the two are their dimensions. The two both have removable batteries, and the SIM card slots and microSD card slots are positioned beneath the rear panel. The photos also shows that the handset running a new version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI slapped on top of Android 5.1 (Lollipop), the same UX found on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
Other specs include a 5-inch screen, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1.5 GB of RAM, and a 2,600 mAh battery.
It is yet to be determined when Samsung plans to lift the lid on the Galaxy J5, but since it has been certified by TENAA, we’re guessing it will be soon.
