According to fresh intel coming from SamMobile, it seems that a low-cost Samsung smartphone is allegedly in the works, and will actually mark the introduction of a new family line. We’re speaking about the entry-level J1 smartphone, which is apparently a smartphone featuring a 4.3-inch 480×800-pixel display and a 5-megapixel camera.
The handset could also feature 1GB of RAM with 4GB of internal storage, along with a 64-bit 1.2GHz quad-core processor from Marvell and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, all powered by a 1,850mAh battery. Of course, these are very modest specs, which will result in Samsung making the device available at a really affordable price. The smartphone is said to run Android 4.4 KitKat with no words yet on the Lollipop upgrade.
However, the new device could get loaded with Ultra Power Saving Mode and other custom software currently present on some of Samsung’s more powerful Galaxy models.
According to the fresh leak, Samsung could release the device in single-SIM and dual-SIM options with both 3G and 4G LTE connectivity. Judging by the leaked images, the device doesn’t seem to look that great and is more reminiscent of already old models.
The Galaxy J1 is said to make its debut tomorrow, but if it doesn’t get announced, then we could see it unwrapped at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
