Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace Neo is official: 4.3-inch screen, 1GB of RAM and quad-core CPU
Yesterday, we told you about the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy J Max. As it turns out, the other end of the slope was recently introduced. Samsung South Africa has listed a device called the Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace Neo, and this handset has a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen. The resolution of the display is 480 x 800.

Obviously an entry-level model, the Galaxy J1 Ace Neo is powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU and is equipped with 1GB of RAM. 8GB of internal memory is on board, of which 4.4GB is available to the user of the phone. In the likely case that more storage is needed, a 128GB capacity micro SD slot is available. A 5MP camera adorns the back of the phone, while a 2MP front-facing camera snaps selfies and handles video chats. The unit will be available in white, black and blue.

While a 1900mAh battery is inside, the Ultra Power Saving Mode can be deployed when the phone is down to its last percentage points of battery life. Some information, like the build of Android running the show, and the pricing of the device, are not yet known. What we can tell you is that we don't expect to see the Galaxy J1 Ace Neo touching down in the U.S.

Why r u so ignorant? This phone is gonna cost at least 150-250USD? You don't think they could have don't better? 480p display and 1GB ram is just pathetic. Buying a moto g4 is so much better than this piece of s**t. Even techiXP is gonna have to agree with this. What I was actually saying is, the spec itself is s**t for the current technology, a better spec'd phone than this doesn't have to be more expensive.

480p display is just fine for checking web browsing, facebook or instagram. Seen phones with 200+ppi resolutions and readability is ok. 1GB ram is also good as long as you're not opening too many background apps. 1900mah battery will make sure that it will last for more than a day with few calls. Don't you know that android was designed in a way that it will run on phones with small specs? "Obviously an entry-level model." Won't hurt to read the whole article yes? It's going to be around USD90-110 since we also have entry-level phones in my country, nobody said that it will be expensive. You're just assuming that it will priced that way.

Well, if they price it the same as feature phone, something like 59-99USD, then I have no problem, but if they price it like the way I mentioned, this phone is totally pathetic, and from my past experience with Samsung low end phones, they are gonna price it around 150-250USD.

Lol still a bigger battery than the iPhone 6s. Aside, this may be the worst Samsung phone of 2016 so far.

And it will go for 1/20th the price of an iPhone, and still make money for Samsung.

I am pretty sure is gonna actually go for around 1/4-1/3 the price of iPhone..... You r just exaggerating it too much...... Stop bring iPhone to this because it has nothing to do with it.

They don't even care if they're making a worst phone of all. So it's useless to post criticism on them.

Haha nice to see your name as an Arrested Development reference in and of itself, though season 4 was utterly garbage.

How much does it costs extra to put 8-13MP camera, 2GB RAM and 16GB space for this form factor?. 4.3" to 4.5" size with above specs would be awesome..

Another rubbish.

Since this phone is super boring , I have a decision to make and I need help . Which phone to buy and why : Moto X Style or OnePlus 3 ? My budget is limited and the phone is a gift. Any other option is also welcome but these seem to be the best buy around this price range.
