Samsung is getting ready to introduce the Galaxy J1, it will be the first device in the series designed for the entry-level market. Though it may not have everything that the average smartphone we have today, one distinct characteristics it have is that Samsung is throwing-in a 64-bit processor on this low-end device while maintaining the cost at bay. The new handset for the Galaxy J series is yet to be announced by Samsung, but our friends at SamMobile got hold of the handset’s leaked promotional images which shows the Galaxy J1 in all its glory.
The entry-level handset will be the first affordable Samsung Android device that features a 64-bit Quad-core processor manufactured by Marvel with Model PXA1908 clocked at 1.2 GHz. Unfortunately, the handset only comes with 1 GB of RAM and a modest 4 GB of internal storage that should reflect from the price ranges that the new series would be playing.
The handset is equipped with 4.3-inch display with 480 x 800 resolutions. it comes with a basic 5-Megapixel camera on the back with LED flash and a 2-Megapixel camera on the front that should be acceptable enough for hi-res video calls and everybody’s favorite the Selfie. It ships with Android 4.4 KitKat which should be upgradable to the latest version of Android whenever there’s available and will have a 1850 mAh battery equipped with ultra power-saving mode.
The handset will come in a number of different variants depending on wireless network support, there would be a single-SIM and Dual-SIM handsets with both models either supporting LTE and 3G only. The latter is said to have a lesser quality front facing camera with VGA resolution which should lower more the cost on every unit.
The Samsung Galaxy J1 is expected to arrive on January 14 and will be available in the emerging markets.
