You may remember yesterday when we got a tip about the new Samsung Galaxy Prime 2016 appearing on Geekbench. Today, the same device has cropped up again but in much more detail, with hardware specs galore.

This time, the handset is showing up on fellow benchmarking website GFXBench, with a much more thorough unveiling of the hardware inside. According to the site, it will include a 960 x 540 panel which is less than we expected. Oddly, it has two panel sizes listed; 5.1″ and 5.0″. The chipset will also be a MediaTek MT6737T variant, not the Qualcomm one we initially thought.

In terms of RAM, Samsung seems to have thrown in 2GB, which is double what last years model had inside. In terms of camera hardware, there’s an 8 megapixel sensor on the rear which is capable of recording 720p video, while the front camera is 5 megapixels. Internal memory looks to be just 8GB, which is scarily low.

The handset will run on the latest version of Android 6.0.1 with the obligatory Samsung overlay. Release date is unconfirmed but expect it soon now that we’ve had two very big leaks. The handset is only expected to debut in India and will be priced relatively low.
