If the Galaxy Grand Prime seemed to pricy, Samsung is working on a Galaxy Grand Prime Value Edition. The SM-G531F is yet to go official, but it looks like a quick coat of paint over the highly popular Grand Prime.
It will keep the 5″ qHD display (540 x 960px) and while it drops the Snapdragon 410 chipset, moving to a Marvell PXA1908, but keeps the quad-core 64-bit processor (Cortex-A53) and 1GB of RAM. The GPU is different though, GC7000.One definite improvement is that the Galaxy Grand Prime Value Edition will launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop. The original model is on 4.4 KitKat and there are no official plans for an upgrade.
Connectivity brings the same – LTE Cat.54, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. The cameras are 8MP on the back and 5MP on the front, the battery at 2,600mAh. Thickness and weight stay at 8.6mm and 156g, really not much has changed.
The launch price should be around €200, down from the €230 of the original. The current Grand Prime has fallen in price since its launch, of course, and it’s now at €180 or so. So, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Value Edition may not fully live up to its name.
