Samsung launches the Galaxy J1 (2016) in Canada for $150

Three days earlier than scheduled, Samsung has launched its latest budget-friendly smartphone, the Galaxy J1 (2016), in Canada. The handset is available to purchase right now through Telus for $150 off-contract and will be up for grabs through Bell on the original intended release date of April 13.

Just in case you need a refresher on its specifications, the Galaxy J1 (2016) sports a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.3GHz Exynos 3475 quad-core processor, a Mali-T720 GPU, 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, 8GB of expandable memory and a 2,050mAh battery.

As far as connectivity goes, we’re looking at support for WiFi, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS, an FM radio and microUSB 2.0. Unfortunately, there’s no compatibility for NFC, fingerprint recognition or fast charging, but that’s no surprize from a sub-$200 handset.
