Samsung to release budget-oriented Galaxy J1 smartphone

Samsung to release budget-oriented Galaxy J1 smartphone

Following disappointing smartphone sales for the past few months Samsung is reportedly moving towards the low-end market where the company hopes it will be able to improve its positions and brand image. After all having the latest Galaxy S5 is a nice thing but most smartphone sales are in the budget market, which is especially true for developing countries where people try to get a nice smartphone for a budget price.

Samsung plans to offer exactly this and to do so the company will create the entirely new Galaxy J line, which will soon have its first member – the Galaxy J1 smartphone. Samsung plans the J1 to be a respectable smartphone for a budget price so the tech specs are something that raises our curiosity.

According to the first preliminary specs list the Galaxy J1 will be similar to the Galaxy Y smartphone which sold really well a few years ago. The specs list also mentions the 64-bit quad core Marvell PXA1908 processor at 1.2 GHz, a 4.3-inch display at 800 x 480 pixels, a 5 MP rear camera, another 2 MP front camera, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, a 1850 mAh battery and LTE connectivity.

When released the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J1 will be running Android 4.4.4 KitKat but there’s no information whether it will be Android 5.0 Lollipop-upgradeable or not. Again there’s no word on the pricing or the release date of the device but the J1 will surely come out sometime next year.
