Samsung is going to introduce another smartphone from their new series, Samsung Galaxy J1. Well we know what you may be thinking and we agree with that, lately Samsung has been popping up smartphones like candies. In January only the company to this date has unveiled six smartphones from different series. The company kicked off their year by introducing three devices from the A series: A3, A5 and A7 ; a new device from the Grand series was also seen, the Galaxy Grand Max and last but not the least the E series was introduced with Samsung E5 and E7.
Samsung Galaxy J1 will sport a 4.3-inch TFT LCD display of 800 x 480 pixels. The device will be powered by 64-bit quad core Marvell PXA 1908 chipset, accompanied by 1 GB RAM and 4 GB of internal storage which is extendable. Galaxy J1 will sport s 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front facing camera. The device will be powered by 1850 mAh battery set and will run on Android 4.4 Kit Kat. The smartphone will also get sport some software features as found in Samsung’s high-end smartphones, like Ultra Power Saving Mode. Galaxy J1 will be available in four variants: single-SIM LTE, dual-SIM LTE, single-SIM 3G and dual-SIM 3G. There 3G variants will have a VGA front facing camera and the LTE variant will feature the 2-megapixel camera talked about before.
Samsung Galaxy J1 is rumored launch on 14th January. No information about the price of the device or where it is launching is confirmed but going by the company’s launch patterns this month it is going to be an Asian country, most probably India or China. Samsung’s latest device does not offer consumers something new in terms of specifications, so we are a bit skeptical if it can compete with low end devices introduced by companies like Xiaomi, Meizu and Huawei whose devices have great specs and come with an affordable price tag.
Samsung is off to a busy year and all of the devices that the company has introduced yet fall in the entry level to mid range pricing category. It looks as if the company is experimenting what works through the different series announced, the sales and consumer feedback will help them in understanding the market needs and what they need to do for the future. Samsung’s profits in 2014 fell by a significant percentage, now the company is aggressively working towards regaining that share back. What Samsung’s strategy results in is still unknown but it will be interesting to see how the company with its all its latest devices fare among competitors.
