Details about yet another Samsung smartphone have been leaked by the usually trusted Samsung related fansite SamMobile. According to their report, the Samsung Galaxy J1 will be an entry-level Android smartphone with a 64-bit quad-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity.
It is expected that the Samsung Galaxy J1 (SM-J100) will feature a 4.3-inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, a 64-bit 1.2GHz quad-core Marvell PXA1908 SoC, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 1,850 mAh battery. Unlike the Samsung upcoming Galaxy E series of smartphones, which possess similar specifications, the Galaxy J1 won't come with Android 5.0 Lollipop. The device will weigh 123 grams, measure 129 x 68 x 8.9 mm, and will be somewhat similar to the Galaxy Y. At this point, it isn't clear whether Samsung will release it anytime soon.
Samsung is in the process to renovate its entire smartphone line-up after its market share started declining, thanks to tough competition in the low-end and mid-range price segment from brands such as Asus, Xiaomi, Lava, and Micromax. Samsung has already released its first metal-clad smartphone in India, the Galaxy Alpha. It has also announced the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5 globally, which might be released in India early next year.
