The Samsung Galaxy J series has helped Samsung in terms of sales. Where high-end models failed to meet the numbers, the Samsung Galaxy J series helped the company. Despite heavy promotions, the high-end flagships of Samsung failed to meet expectations. A tweet has revealed that Samsung is coming up with a new model in the Samsung J series.
A tweet from @S_leak reveals that Samsung is going to bump the specs of the entry-level Samsung Galaxy J1 for the Samsung Galaxy J1 2016. The @S_leak says that the display size will be up to 4.5-inches up from last years 4.3-inches. The resolution of the smartphone though will remain the same as the earlier model i.e 400x800.
Galaxy J1 - 2016 / SM-J120F / 4.5inch Display (480x800 pixel)/ Exynos 3457/ GPU Mali-720/RAM1GB/ Android 5.1.1 pic.twitter.com/fKttqA9RIR— S_leak (@sleaknow) December 28, 2015
The tweet reveals that the Galaxy J1 2016 will have an unannounced Exynos 3457 chipset. It has a quad-core CPU and Mali-T720 GPU, 1 GB of RAM and will come with Android 5.1 Lollipop on board. The original version of the Galaxy J1 is driven by a dual-core 1.2Ghz CPU with a Mali-T400 GPU and a RAM of 512MB.
The original Galaxy J1 was launched last February, so a very early release of a sequel can be ruled out. However, this too cannot be confirmed. It's most likely that the Samsung Galaxy J will get through FCC and TENAA certifications. We can then expect something real from the Samsung Galaxy J1.
