It's no secret that Samsung has been waiting to reaffirm its confidence in the lower segment of the smartphone market, currently dominated by the likes of Motorola, Xiaomi and Micromax.
With the Samsung Galaxy J1, the smartphone maker is taking aim at the low-end handset market. The price-tag and specs are designed to blow away the likes of Motorola Moto E and Xiaomi Redmi 1S.
Samsung will be hoping that its trusted brand reputation in India, combined with the Galaxy J1's competitive specs will be enough to tempt anyone looking to buy their first Android smartphone.
