Without making too much noise, Samsung has presented the new Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) in Dubai . The new model fits into the new year and has undergone a slight makeover, though despite being advertised in one of the most luxurious venues in the world, it remains true to its stark design and affordable features. Its 4.5-inch screen only achieves a resolution of 800i-480. Its processor is not very prominent either. The Exynos 3475 quad-core model is not going to classify it as one of the mobiles of the year. We can say that the Galaxy J1 (2016) is a mobile by and for users who want to talk, send a message, WhatsApp and little more, without spending too much, only the 120 euros that it costs.
At the moment, the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) is a device announced for the Asian market, so we do not know if it will finally reach our continent. At first glance, this model is in tune with the one announced last year: simple design with polycarbonate housing and relatively small screen (4.5 inches with WVGA resolution ). Three touch buttons are located on its front, which will allow us to comfortably access most of its services. The rear is composed of a main camera and flash along with the company logo.
The processor that Samsung has chosen to move this new Galaxy J1 (2016) is an Exynos 3475, a house chip made up of four cores that work at a speed of 1.3 GHz and are accompanied by 1GB of RAM. These settings should be sufficient to move basic applications, but not to run games and other apps with overly powerful graphics. Regarding the internal storage capacity, the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) has 8GB expandable through the use of MicroSD type cards of up to 32GB. Those users who need more space already know that they can always resort to some type of cloud storage service such asGoogle Drive or Dropbox .
Moreover, the new mobile low cost of Samsung equips a fairly simple main camera with a resolution of 5MP with flash. The secondary camera is only 2 megapixels, somewhat lacking for selfies and video calls. Regarding the connectivity section, this year's Galaxy J1 has an LTE connection , to connect to high-speed networks, WiFi, Bluetooth , as well as microUSB 2.0 and GPS . Also noteworthy is the 3.5mm minijack, which will allow us to adjust our favorite headphones.
How could it be otherwise, the new South Korean phone will not be governed by the latest version of Android (Android 6.0 Marshmallow) . The company has decided that Android 5.1.1 Lollipop will handle it. It is a version that incorporates some new features and also provides greater performance and stability to the team. Finally, mention the battery, which has a very interesting autonomy: 2,050mAh. The company has not provided data, but we assume that it will give us the possibility of being able to use the phone for long hours without having to charge it.
