Some of you guys might recall that a couple of weeks ago, leaked information revealed that Samsung had a handset by the name of the Galaxy J1. We even saw its priced leaked by an online retailer and for those curious about the handset, wonder no more because Samsung has officially launched it.
Now the Samsung Galaxy J1 is by no means a powerful handset, although given that it is part of a new J-series of smartphones, we can only assume that its siblings would come with better specs. That being said for those who are curious as to what kind of specs the Galaxy J1 packs under the hood, here it is.
The phone will come with a 4.3-inch WVGA display. Under the hood the handset will be powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz chipset which goes against the original rumor of it packing a 64-bit quad-core Marvell processor. It will come with a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage expandable via microSD, a 1,850mAh battery, and will come with Android 4.4 KitKat.
The price of the phone was not revealed and it is unclear if it will be launched stateside as the handset was found on Samsung Malaysia’s website. However the earlier retailer leak was from Russia, so presumably the handset could be headed there as well, but either way we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
