It seems Samsung is getting ready to unveil the follow-up to the Samsung Galaxy J1, an entry-level device launched last year, as the press renders of the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) have been leaked.
Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) press renders
The renders above were leaked by leak master Evan Blass (popularly known as @evleaks on Twitter). The renders reveal that the yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) will be available in at least three colour options: black, white, and gold.
We’ve learned from previous reports that the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) is expected to feature a 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, which is a tad larger than the 4.3-inch screen on board the first Samsung Galaxy J1. Despite the slight increase in screen size, the Galaxy J1 (2016) is still a pretty compact device compared to the 5-inch and larger smartphones currently available in the market. Under the hood is expected to be a Samsung-made Exynos 3457 SoC, which is a quad-core processor, coupled with 1 GB of RAM. In the photography department, the Galaxy J1 (2016) is expected to feature a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video chat. 4 GB of internal storage is expected to be on board. If this isn’t enough, a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB) is expected to be on board for additional storage options. It is expected to run Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) is not expected to burn a hole through your pocket, meaning it will be a highly-affordable offering.
Back in 2015, Samsung lifted the lid on the Samsung Galaxy J1 in January. This means that we could see the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) make its official debut soon, probably later this January of 2016.
