A slightly enhanced version of Galaxy J1, the first J-series by Samsung, may be launched as J1 Ace. Galaxy J1 (SM-J100), the maiden venture of the J-series of budget handsets, was announced this January. This model will be accompanied soon by Galaxy J1 Ace (SM-J100F) as it happened to appear on a Dutch website NieuweMobiel.NL.

It seems that the new model would not feature some major changes. Few upgraded specs (primarily hardware) and a newer version of Android may be on board. The Galaxy J1 runs on KitKat. A Dutch online retail store already listed the smartphone without any other specifications attached.

Samsung has built a reputation of frequently rolling out smartphones with a consistent flow of new specs and features.  In the month of May it was speculated that the next J-series device is in development with model number SM-J110 and could be called Galaxy J1 Pop when it launches. It was also rumoured that the second generation of J0series will be launched to capture the developing markets like Brazil, Russia and India.

It is speculated that Samsung with the Galaxy J2 series on the horizon wants to rapidly build the Galaxy J1 series. Thus, it may launch the J1Ace as ‘Galaxy J1Pop’ in certain markets.

As reported by SamMobile, the Galaxy J2 (SM-J200F) series may be featuring a 4.7-inch display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Galaxy J2 may also house the new TouchWiz UX from the Galaxy S6 lineup.
