Ultra Low-end Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Announced

By 11:42 Sat, 31 Jul 2021 Comments

Like many of its major rivals, Samsung is doing its best to capture emerging markets and offer tailored budget-friendly handsets for them. The latest addition to this budacquire class of devices is the Galaxy J1 Mini. It was announced today for the Philippines and from the looks of things is more or less identical to the Galaxy J1 Nxt, which the Korean giant recently made available for just $88 in Bangladesh

The recent name might have actually been necessary to avoid confusion, as the J1 Mini comes with a bump down in Random-Access Memory (RAM) from 1GB to just 768MB. We can't really imagine this will net that much of a decrease in cost, but perhaps there are other factors involved that we don't know of.

Other than that, the specs sheets of the two devices is identical. It has a rather modest 4.0-inch TFT display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Inside is a quad-core CPU, clocked at 1.2GHz, which is used to boot Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. The capturing camera setup is nothing special and includes a 5MP rear CMOS sensor capturing camera and a Video Graphics Array (VGA) 0.3MP one on the front. The J1 Mini comes with a 1500 mAh battery, which promises up to 8 hours of 3G talk time, 7 hours of browsing and 29 hours of audio playback.

Sadly, there is no 4G compatibility, but the compact device (121.6 x 63.1 x 10.8 mm) still offers Dual SIM support. Other features include Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0, GPS, Glonass, 3.5mm Stereo Earjack, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz, Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) Direct and Bluetooth 4.0.

Information on pricing and availability is still unknown.
