New Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) images show up
Samsung is getting ready to release a new Android smartphone that should be called Galaxy J1 (2016). Obviously succeeding the Galaxy J1 from 2015, the Galaxy J1 (2016) has at least three color versions: black, white, and gold, all of which can be seen below, thanks to renders revealed by @evleaks.

As previously rumored, the new Galaxy J1 is expected to sport a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels. This is slightly larger than the 4.3-inch screen of the older J1, but it's still pretty small for today's standards. Size aside, the screen's pixel resolution automatically makes the new J1 a low-end smartphone. It's said that the handset is powered by a quad-core Exynos 3457 processor - which is, probably, Samsung's response to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410. The Galaxy J1 (2016) should also feature 1 GB of RAM, and Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Since the Samsung Galaxy J1 from last year was announced in January, the new model might be officially presented sometime later this month. The original Galaxy J1 was released by Verizon as a prepaid smartphone, so maybe the J1 (2016) will also be available in the US at some point. We'll let you know if that happens.

The second and third image look like half-assed finishes with the black screen panel... Regardless, would be neat to see these running lollipop with 1GB of RAM.

Unattractive device. Apart from brand name and aftersales services redmi 3 is better buy if available (they might come close in price tag)

On the won hand we have the Samsung J1 and on the other a similarly priced Redmi 3 with its metal build and HD screen and Snapdragon 616 SOC and the 4100 mAh battery. Beats me why anyone would buy the J1 (provided that both are available in the market). I understand that the brand value and after sales service are very important but the difference in quality of the two devices is unbelievable when we know that they are going to be priced similarly (around the 100$ mark).

Honestly 1 GB of RAM is a huge upgrade. No one should make phones with 512 MB of RAM Ever. The original J1 sucked so much because of this.

why 1GB RAM?. It should be minimum of 1.5GB/2GB in 2016..
