Samsung’s budget-friendly Galaxy J lineup is one of the well-received series. Following the success, the South Korean tech giant is apparently gearing up to introduce the successor. A new leak points to a slew of live photos and key configuration details of the Galaxy J1 2016.
Going by the tweet from @sleaknow and details given in the site SCCN VN, the Samsung Galaxy J1 2016 will reportedly flaunt a pocket-friendly 4.5-inch display. In comparison, the predecessor comes with a relatively smaller 4.3-inch screen. However, the South Korean tech giant will maintain the same screen resolution of 480 x 800 pixels in the successor.
Under the hood, the handset will apparently come powered by an unannounced Samsung Exynos 3457 chipset. This chip will work in tandem with a quad-core processor, while the graphics side of things will be taken care by Mali-T720 GPU.
Plus, the device is believed to come backed by 1 GB of RAM. The predecessor, on the other hand, comes bundled with a dual-core processor running at 1.2 GHz, Mali-T400 GPU for graphics and 512 MB of RAM configuration. On the software end, not Marshmallow but Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS has been reported to come out of the box.
As far as the release date goes, Phone Arena reported that the predecessor was introduced in February this year. Hence, it is safe to assume that, the Galaxy J1 2016 will hit the store shelves in the same time frame next year.
In any case, readers are advised to take the reported Galaxy J1 2016 specifications and release date with the proverbial pinch of salt as the company has not confirmed any information so far.
Furthermore, readers can check out a slew of alleged Galaxy J1 2016 photos from SCCN VN. And here is the tweet by @sleaknow showing one of the leaked images of the aforesaid device:
