Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) coming soon to AT&T
Announced by Samsung in January, the Galaxy J1 (2016) is seemingly headed to the US via AT&T. Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) posted a render that shows an AT&T-bound Galaxy J1 (2016), without providing details on when, or for how much the handset will be sold. Anyway, AT&T could start selling the new smartphone on April 1 - or at least that's what the date seen on the device's home screen is suggesting.

There's nothing really impressive about the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016). Like the Galaxy J1 from 2015, this is an entry-level handset. It's got a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 480 x 800 pixels, only 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal memory (fortunately, there's also microSD card support). Powered by a quad-core Exynos 3475 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, the J1 (2016) further features LTE connectivity, a 5 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 2050 mAh battery. The device runs Android Lollipop, and has three color variants (white, black, and gold), but it's not clear if all of them will be available at AT&T.

As previously reported, AT&T is also getting ready to release the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016), which can already be bought at Boost and Virgin Mobile. Compared to the J1, the J3 offers superior features (including a 5-inch 720p display, and 1.5 GB of RAM), so it will certainly be a bit more expensive. We'll let you know more about AT&T's Galaxy J1 and J3 when new details arrive.

on a 4.5'' display? THat's about 200ppi, not sure why you're complaining.
I consider anything below 170 as s**t.

Dude...this phone is probably $100 off contract and is a cheap entry level phone. Why does it need QHD. If you want QHD Samsung makes such a phone. What you said is like putting 30" RIM on a Yugo, if you even know what a Yugo is.

He said qHD, not QHD. 960x540. Pay close attention before you jump on someone's case.

Unfortunately, I don't believe Samsung ever made any AMOLED qHD panels. They went right from WVGA to HD.
