Samsung SM-G532F to be called Galaxy Grand Prime+, not Galaxy Grand Prime (2016)

Remember the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016)? The existence of this successor to the originalGalaxy Grand Prime from 2014 has first been outed by a benchmark database back in August. Then last week we heard that it would launch with the same Grace UX software layer on board as the Galaxy Note7.

And now it’s become rather clear that this phone will not in fact be called Galaxy Grand Prime (2016). Samsung has filed a trademark application for Galaxy Grand Prime+ in its home country of South Korea, as evidenced by the screenshot below.

Since it’s doubtful that the company is working on two Grand Prime devices at the same time, this will thus be the name of the phone bearing the model number SM-G532F. The name has also reportedly been confirmed by a “reliable source” from inside the Samsung, as apparently there’s a (not detailed further) link between the SM-G532F model number and the Grand Prime+ product name in the company’s internal database.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime+ will arrive with a 5″ or 5.1″ touchscreen, the MediaTek MT6737T chipset at the helm (with a 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU), 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of built-in storage. It should run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow from day one.
