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.
