The Galaxy J1 appears to be a budget handset from Samsung

Budget phones are all the rage these days, with the likes of the Moto G, EE Kestrel, and every recent Lumia phone hitting the market for less than £200. Now Samsung appears to be trying its hand at that portion of the market with the Galaxy J1.

A bunch of images have been published by SamMobile showing off the phone and detailing what specifications we can expect. The phone apparently comes with a 5MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera, a 4.3-inch 480p display, a 1.2GHz quad-core 64 bit processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, microSD expansion, and a 1,850 mAh battery. That’s all coming bundled with Android KitKat.

The specs are fairly similar to other budget handsets on the market right now, even if the amount of built-in storage is a little bit disappointing. There certainly isn’t anything setting it apart from other handsets available, but it does have the obvious advantage of carrying the Samsung brand.

SamMobile also also noticed that the date in the images is Wednesday the 14th of July, which implies that Samsung might have been planning on announcing the phones on that day. That’s tomorrow, so we certainly don’t have long to wait and see what happens.
