Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) breaks cover in leaked images


Last updated: January 12th, 2016 at 08:00 UTC+02:00

Samsung is gradually updating its mid-range and low-end lineup for the new year, merely weeks after it unveiled the 2016 models of the Galaxy A series, it appears that the Galaxy J series is up for a refresh next. We have already reported that the Galaxy J5 (2016) is being tested in Samsung’s R&D facilities in India and now we’re seeing the Galaxy J1 (2016) break cover in some images that have been leaked online today.

Images and specifications of the Galaxy J1 (2016) have already been leaked previously, the refreshed handset is expected to feature a 4.5-inch 480 x 800 pixel resolution display, its predecessor had a 4.3-inch display, and might be powered by an Exynos 3457 quad-core processor with 1GB RAM and Android 5.1 Lollipop. This is a bonafide low-end smartphone which may also make its way to the United States since the original Galaxy J1 was also released by Verizon in the US as a prepaid device. It arrived in January last year so it has been a full year and it’s about time that the Galaxy J1 (2016) was formally launched, Samsung hasn’t said anything yet but from the looks of it an official announcement may not be far off.
