Another day, another Samsung Galaxy. A few days ago we reported the confirmed specifications about the Galaxy J7. This time the leaks are about its younger sibling called the Samsung Galaxy J5.

From the looks of the images, the Galaxy J5 has a similar design to the Galaxy J1 and the Galaxy J7, with a common plastic body and removable back panel. The removable back panel allows for a swappable battery which is always a useful feature if you are constantly on the go and have no where to sit down to charge your phone. There are very few differences between the Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7 with exception to the screen size.

The phone is confirmed to have a 5-inch 720p display resulting in pixel density of 293ppi. For RAM and storage, the phone consists of 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage which can be further expanded by using the micro-SD card slot. The whole package is driven by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 processor and is powered by a decently sized 2600mAh battery. In the optics department, there is a 13-megapixel rear facing camera and a 5-megapixel front facing camera for selfie lovers. From the looks of it, the phone appears to be running the same version of Touchwiz as the Samsung Galaxy S6.

There is no official word on release date and pricing. Overall, I would say that the phone has decent spec’s to compete in the mid-range segment.
