This is the Galaxy J1, Samsung's newest low-end, 64-bit smartphone

This is the Galaxy J1, Samsung's newest low-end, 64-bit smartphone
Last month, we told you that Samsung was getting ready to introduce a new, affordable smartphone called Galaxy J1 (model number SM-J100). Now, although the handset has yet to be announced, we can take a look at it thanks to the existence of several leaked images posted by Sam Mobile.

The Galaxy J1 doesn’t look too different from some older Galaxy models, but that shouldn’t be a surprise. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the J1 is that, although it’s a pretty low-end device, it’s powered by a 64-bit processor: a quad-core Marvell PXA1908 clocked at 1.2 GHz.

The new handset sports a 4.3-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels, and will run Android 4.4 KitKat at launch. Other features reportedly include a 5 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 1850 mAh battery. It’s said that the Galaxy J1 will also have some features found on higher-end Galaxy devices, including Ultra Power Saving mode. The smartphone will come in LTE and non-LTE flavors, both having single SIM and dual SIM variants.

Samsung might officially unveil the Galaxy J1 later this month. We assume the handset will be mainly targeted at emerging markets. But we’ll see about that.

So many Galaxies. The only good Samsung phones are the Ativ line, and they are the reason the company is great today.

You mean the Samsung S and Note lines right? Because they don't make a phone that is better than those two.

Samsung is destroying/diluting its brand.If they really want to compete with Apple, they should focus on the premium segment. They have the technical expertise to bring the best smartphones to market. Why does this company waste its potential?

Just go on eBay and get an used Galaxy S3. That's a quality low end device there :D

S3 is still going strong, but it doesn't have the price tag of a low-end device, at least not yet.

One of the worst laggiest s**ttiest phones i have ever had the chance to play with. With Moto G 2014 170$ and running 5.0 smoothly I dont see a point of picking that crap.

I would bother more about that 4GB of internal storage. Someone should kick Samsung in the balls for doing that.
Oh, and Marvell chip. Set their HQ on fire.

It's probably a 100 dollar phone, so don't expect too much from it.

HAHAHAHA. knowing Samsung I would not expect such price.
Ace 4 Lite - Blazing FAST single-core CPU, Retina quality 4-inch WVGA, DSLR like 3MP camera, and WHOPPING 512 megawhoppers. Only for ~115 USD on Amazon! :(

Why so many Galaxies? ._. Why so crap specs? ._. Why the high price? ._.
How about instead - release ONE device from each line per YEAR with competitive pricing so you can stop whining about your sales.
TA-DA.

Samsung should have kept the Galaxy line for only the high end phones eg the S and Note lines.

the mid tier should get its own name, lets just say for instance Onima.

the low end should also get its own designation.

Each line should also have its own design language and build quality, however, there is no reason why a Samsung still couldn't have a Samsung style. Everything just doesn't need to look almost the same.
