Samsung announced a range of 4G-enabled smartphone at the Samsung Forum 2015 in Bangkok earlier today. Priced at Rs 9,990, the Galaxy J1 4G (SM-J100F) is the cheapest of the lot. It is an enhanced version of the Galaxy J1 (SM-J100H) 3G smartphone that was launched in India last week.
The Samsung Galaxy J1 4G has the same 4.3-inch (800 x 480 Pixels) display seen on the Galaxy J1 and runs on Android 4.4.4 (KitKat), but this is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor compared to 1.2GHz dual-core processor and has 768MB RAM instead of 512MB RAM in the 3G variant.
The smartphone is 8.9mm thick and weighs 122 grams. It comes in blue, black and white colors.
It has dual SIM support, 4G LTE connectivity that includes TDD-LTE B40 (2300) and FDD-LTE B3 (1800) bands for India. It has a 5-megapixel auto focus rear camera with LED Flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter.
It has a metal rim around it and has flat design on the top and the bottom that slightly differentiates the smartphone among other Galaxy devices. It has 4GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 64GB with microSD and has a 1850mAh battery. The Galaxy J1 4G will go on sale in India from the second week of March.
