The Wi-Fi component of the firmware version is same as the hardware. Even though the model number of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) has surfaced on the web, we don’t have any clear indication as to when Samsung will officially release the handset.

The official Wi-Fi certification document of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) doesn’t reveal the specifications. However, the document clearly indicates the fact that the new handset is an Android smartphone. Hence, we have to depend on the previous rumors about the specifications.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) will ship with single and dual SIM variants

As per the original Wi-Fi certification document, Samsung is tipped to launch two variants of the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) models such as single and dual-SIM models. However, the availability will vary by country and mobile carrier.

Possibility for Android Nougat low for Galaxy Grand Prime (2016)

On the software segment, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) will ship with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with upgrade capability to Android 7.0 Nougat. According to sources, the chances of Android Nougat upgrade for this handset are bleak based on the specifications of the smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) passed the Samsung’s testing procedure when it was imported to India in August 2016. Hence, the handset only requires the FCC approval.
