Entry-level Samsung Galaxy J1 specs and images surface


Samsung could soon introduce a new line of devices, says oft-reliable SamMobile. The SM-J100 “Galaxy J1” figures to be the first of what we presume to be a series of low-cost devices.

Specifications are definitely on the lower end of the spectrum and include a 4.3-inch 480×800 display and 5-megapixel rear camera. Said to get its power from a 64-bit 1.2GHz quad-core Marvell processor, the Galaxy J1 is alleged to pack 1GB RAM with 4GB internal storage.Rounding things out, we should look for a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, an 1850mAh battery, and a host of custom Samsung apps.

Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Samsung handset is said to come with single-SIM and dual-SIM variants of both 3G and LTE connectivity.

There’s only a few weeks to go until Mobile World Congress takes place; that venue is as good as any to introduce a new line. We’ll be on guard for anything else that pops up relating to the Galaxy J1.

Based on what you know of the device, does this seem like the sort of thing you’d be willing to purchase? What about recommending to a friend or family member?
