Samsung seems to be hard at work revamping their current line of devices – hopefully for the better. We’ve seen a change in their design paradigm with the Samsung Galaxy A series and it would seem that the changes are still coming. The Korean manufacturer looks to be adopting a new, simpler naming convention for its devices. This trend first showed up with the Galaxy A series and seems to be continuing with newer leaks with the Galaxy E and Galaxy J line up.
We saw details of the Galaxy J1 emerge earlier in the year with the appearance of a device with the model number SM-J100F on benchmarks. Initial rumours showed that the device will be running a new 64-bit Marvell Quad Core processor and the new rumours seem to confirm it. In addition, more information has also surfaced.
The Galaxy J series looks to be taking its queue from the Samsung Galaxy Y; bringing 4G LTE connectivity to the entry level. However, unlike previous entry level devices from Samsung, the Galaxy J1 looks to be bringing more bang for the users buck with better specifications.
The Galaxy J1 will be coming with the earlier mentioned 64-bit Marvell Quad Core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz with 1GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory. It will also be coming with a 5-MegaPixel camera with a 2-MegaPixel front facing camera. All of this will be powered by a 1,850 mAh battery and come in a 129 x 68 x 8.9 mm body weighing 123g. The Samsung Galaxy J1 will apparently be coming with Android 4.4.4 KitKat but we are expecting this to change to take advantage of the 64-bit processing. There is no word yet on pricing or when the device will be launched.
What do you think? Is the entry level device still relevant? Or has it been overtaken by cheaper midrange alternatives? Let us know in the comments down below.
