Rumors of Samsung coming up with a sequel to the Galaxy Grand Prime, the Galaxy Grand Prime 2016 have come to the forefront thanks to the recent sighting of a new device on the Indian export and import site Zauba.
Not surprisingly, details are extremely scarce at the moment though the model number mentioned in the site could be the biggest slip-up. With the new handset being identified by the model number SM-G532F, that in turn bears a striking similarity with the Galaxy Grand Prime that used to be referred to as SM-G531.
Also, from what is evident from the site, there have been 7 units of the device that has been shipped to India. The shipping dates mentioned are July 12th and August 4th. Also, the value of the latest shipment has been pegged at $103 for each unit. Sure that won’t be the ultimate price the handset would be available in but serves to indicate it would be targeted at the mid-range to budget segment at the best.
