Leaked Hardware Specs of Samsung Galaxy J1 (SM-J100) Suggest an Entry-Level Device
The Samsung Galaxy J is one of the company’s newest smartphone series and is aimed for entry-level users. The Samsung Galaxy J1 or SM-J100 comes with low-end hardware specs, including 1.2GHz Marvell PXDA1908 64-bit quad-core processor, 4.3-inch WVGA display, 4GB of internal storage, 2Mp front-facing camera, 5Mp rear-facing camera, 1GB of RAM and 1850mAh battery. Apparently, high performance isn’t a priority and but the Samsung Galaxy J1 is still equipped with 4G LTE data connectivity.
Users may also need to settle with the older Android 4.4 KitKat, instead of the Lollipop. Judging by its processor type, Samsung surely makes a good decision by pairing it with rather poor quality display. The camera also has fixed focus mechanism and the phone only needs a low enough price tag to justify the rather disappointing hardware.
Samsung plans to simplify its lineup and it may remove old naming, Young, Zoom, Mega and Core. New names will be simpler, like the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy S5. With fewer devices and a much more focused catalogue, Samsung could minimize customer confusions and improve sales. There is no clue on the pricing, but the J series could be aimed to compete against sub-$200 phones from China.
