Samsung launched Galaxy J1, the first smartphone in its Galaxy J series back in Feb 2015. Now, a new smartphone has been recently spotted on the GeekBench listing with model number SM-J105F that is alleged to be a mini variant of the Galaxy J1 and will be called as ‘Galaxy J1 Mini.’
As per the GeekBench listing, the J1 Mini will feature a 4.3-inch WVGA (800×480 pixels) display and will come powered by Spreadtrum SC88330 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. The device will have 1GB RAM, 8GB of onboard storage that is further expandable using a microSD card slot.
Regarding the camera, the device sports a 5MP fixed focus rear camera with LED flash and a VGA front-facing shooter surely not for selfie lovers. As it is the mini variant of the Galaxy J1, we cannot expect 4G-LTE support, and it will come with basic connectivity options like 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and microUSB port.
The smartphone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop based customized TouchWiz UI out of the box and is expected to be priced around $100 (approx Rs. 6,700). The device was also recently spotted on the Zauba listing with the same model number. Although the company officially confirms nothing, we advise you to take this with a pinch of salt. Stay tuned for more details about the upcoming low-end smartphone.
