Towards the end of 2014, Samsung released the Galaxy A series of devices and this was followed by the Galaxy E series and now, the first Galaxy J series of handset has become official. Apparently, the tech giant is gearing up to debut the entry-level Samsung Galaxy J1 in Malaysia.

Reportedly, the Galaxy J1 tied to the model number SM-J100H has been listed on Samsung’s official Malaysian Website. This means, the Galaxy J1 will soon be released in this region, says Phone Arena.  As far as the key Samsung Galaxy J1 specifications go, the entry-level handset will reportedly feature a pocket-friendly 4.3-inch WVGA display with 480 x 800 pixels resolution. Under the hood, the handset will reportedly be powered by a 64-bit, quad-core (Marvell) processor. However, the listed specification points to a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz instead. Therefore, at this point, there is no official confirmation available to ascertain, if the said processor is specific to Malaysian region.

On the software end, the J1 will run on Android v4.4 KitKat OS and the device will support dual-SIM and 3G connectivity. With respect to camera specification, there will reportedly be a 5 MP rear-facing unit with LED flash, in addition to a 2 MP front-facing snapper for selfies. Adding a cherry on top, the camera mounted on the front will come with Palm Selfie feature, which detects gestures and thereby, letting the user take selfies with the help of hand gestures.

As far as the memory configuration goes, the Galaxy J1 will come equipped with a meagre 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage capacity. However, this handset supports microSD card for memory expansion. Moreover, the whole configuration will reportedly be powered by a 1,850 mAh removable battery unit, which is capable of giving up to 10 hours of talk time. Plus, this device will support Samsung’s Ultra Power Saving mode. Speaking of size, the handset reportedly weighs 122 g and it is 8.9 mm thick. Lastly, the Galaxy J1 will be offered in blue, black and white hues. Interested readers can check out the images of the Samsung Galaxy J1 from the company’s official Website.
