Specs, image of Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) surface: 4.5-inch WVGA screen, Exynos 3457 SoC, 1GB RAM

The tweet from @S_leak states that the Galaxy J (2016) will be powered by the unannounced Exynos 3457 chipset. The latter contains a quad-core CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. The OG Galaxy J1 is driven by a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU with the Mali-T400 GPU. 512MB of RAM is aboard.
The original Galaxy J1 was launched last February, so it wouldn't be too far out of the question to expect a sequel to be unveiled soon. Still, we do suggest taking this story with the proverbial grain of salt. Perhaps we will soon see the Galaxy J1 (2016) certified by the FCC, or TENAA. If that happens, you will be able to put away the salt shaker.
Thanks for the tip!

Would 720p screen and 2gb ram too much to ask for? This s**t seems to be same or even weaker league than Galaxy s2 from 2011

I think they're reserving those features for the 2016 J2

Considering the majority of the world buys low end devices. Then this makes sense. Personally I don't buy low range devices. But I know in the Android world it is 20% high end ($400 and above), 20% mid range ($200 - $400), and 60% low end ($200 or less).

More like 80 percent low end if you count the world for Android. Androids biggest feature is the amount of quality low end phones being released since 4.4 was released. The 512MB ram optimization was a huge move by Google, 4.4 runs better than lilipop on most low end phones.

No, it's not too much to ask at all... But for around Hundred and Ten Bucks, I'm afraid it's indeed too much to ask for. And shall I stress the fact that Lumia 550 is offering more 'stuff' per buck than this 'rumoured' J1. And an awful lot more than current 512MB J1 with a tiny 1,700mAh Battery!

I think it has an antutu of about 20k.it is not that bad. Same performance that of sd400 and mtk6582. Because of the mali t720 2 cores the phone will have superior gaming performance like the Sony e4g. I think it is a good move by Samsung. 1GB ram is perfectly enough even for 2016. There are even phones with 2 GB , 3GB which lag. It is not about the amount of ram.but how well the software is optimized. People who aren't able to buy a J5 could buy this. Well the specs are not very bad. Hope this device has good signal receptors. I have often seen Samsung entry level devices with signal reception problems.

Buying used/older mid-high end phones is way better than buying new low end phones. I just bought a LG G2 for $125. The 2013 Moto X is a little less.

BLU life one x 2016 was $100 on amazon (now $150). i bought it as a back up phone at $90 with 10% chase discount. Also look at elephone p9000 us version. I dont care about brand name when buying less than $200 dollar phones cuz it is not going to be my main anyway.
