If we were to name the smartphone manufacturer that has the most diverse portfolio, it undoubtedly would be Samsung. The Korean company releases so many phones each year that it’s not difficult to lose track of all the models. And apparently it’s not going to rest on laurels anytime soon. Only yesterday Samsung launched the Galaxy A7 and shortly after that the very first press renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J1 (SM-J100) leaked online.
Samsung Galaxy J1 (SM-J100)
The Samsung Galaxy J1 is the first member of the new Galaxy J series which will be aimed at lower-end sector of the market. We first heard about the phone a month ago and then it popped up again revealing key technical details. Now we have a set of pictures to accompany the list of specs.
The images present a white handset that keeps the familiar Samsung design with rounded corners and a physical key under the screen. It’s hard to be certain by just looking at the photos, but the phone gives the impression of having solid construction.
According to earlier leaks and rumors, the Galaxy J1 sports a 4.3-inch display with 480×800 resolution, though we can’t confirm whether it’s AMOLED or other type. Powering the device allegedly is a 1.2GHz quad-core Marvell PXA1908 64-bit paired with 1GB of RAM.
Users will also get 4GB of expandable storage and a 1,850 mAh battery with Ultra Power Saving Mode will keep the lights on. The Galaxy J1 will come in four versions: LTE single and dual-SIM and 3G single and dual-SIM. In addition to connectivity, the phones will have different front-facing cameras – the LTE variants feature 2-megapixel shooters, while the 3G versions step down to VGA sensors. The rear camera is identical in all models and it’s a 5-megapixel unit.
The leaks suggest that the Samsung Galaxy J1 will go official on January 14th; however, so far Samsung hasn’t confirmed the claim. Pricing also remains unknown for now. Being an entry-level phone, the J1 shouldn’t be expensive, but we wouldn’t venture a guess as to how much it can cost. If the leaks are to be believed, we will find out tomorrow.
