Mystery Samsung device with 64-bit Marvell chip
A recent benchmark data has revealed a mystery Samsung device that will be powered by Marvell’s new generation of 64-bit CPU’s.
Benchmark data from a Samsung device designated as SM-J100F was spotted, and it looks rather unusual. We can see that it has a 4.8-inch device but has a very low resolution of 800×480 pixels, well below today’s standards especially considering the screen size. It also has only 0.6GB of RAM (presumably 1GB) and 2.2GB of internal storage (presumably 4GB). The shining light of this device is the quad-core, 1.2GHz Marvell PXA1908 chipset that provides decent processing speeds and comes with LTE support. It also has a front and rear camera which are both 5MP and capable of full HD video recording, which is rare as the front cameras are usually weaker than the rear. Then again, this could be Samsung further enabling the selfie trend that has been going around.
Looking at the device overall, it is rather weak in terms of performance, especially given the bottlenecks in its RAM and internal storage capacity. Furthermore, the visuals are not going to be great given the low pixel density of the display. As such, we expect this device to be an entry-level device with more emphasis on affordability than performance. It will still be refreshing as it has an impressive front camera and runs on Android 4.4.4 out of the box instead of the conventional 4.3 Jelly Bean.
Those looking for a budget phone come 2015 may want to keep an eye out for this mystery Samsung phone.
