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.
