Back in December, we first caught the glimpse of a new Samsung J line, which has so far failed to put anything in the hands of consumers. But, Keen on making its presence felt again in each segment, the South Korean tech giant Samsung has another device in the affordable budget rangle club preparing itself for launch. The Samsung J1 is not yet officially announced but a photo and a price tag have showed up on a Russian online store.
Anyway, at the current cost of the device we are getting a generic low-end representative of the company's vast lineup. The J1 flaunts a 4.3-inch screen of 480x800 pixel resolution which is surrounded by generous bezels along with sensors and buttons. It is clocked by a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 CPU, paired with 1GB of RAM which provides decent power for daily activities, and 4GB of built-in storage is expandable via microSD. It is based on Android Kitkat V4.4 and the whole show is managed by a Li-Ion 1850 mAh battery and a 5MP/2MP camera combo.
The smartphone will be available in no less than six versions, according to the user manual on Samsung's Russian site. Variations in the radio connectivity and dual SIM options will differentiate between the six. The picture provides us the price of the single SIM LTE-enabled edition. The phone is expected to start shipping on January 23.
