Earlier, July 3, 2015 : Samsung J1 Ace Android smartphone is the latest device which comes with the decent specs. While the detailed specs are still awaited, this phone is placed in the mid-range segment. With Android taking its chance with the Android One programme again in India where the new range from Lava is priced 2x times than 1st generation of Android One devices, Samsung wants to make sure that this time it doesn’t lose out on this turf. While it is still not sure on by when and where this new smartphone will be launched, this has been caught on the dutch website. Samsung was earlier spotted with the J1 android device and this on, J1 Ace is of the same family.
There are rumors that Galaxy J1 Pop might be launched as the Galaxy Ace J1. This device is dubbed as SM-J110F which means that there are differences when it comes to the hardware. The Galaxy J1 was announced earlier in January of 2015 and recently were still the J5 and J7 added to it. While the latter two are yet to come out, the Galaxy J1 is already available in the market.
