The Samsung Galaxy J1 is one of the latest budget devices in the Kenyan Smartphone market. The Galaxy J1 features just the basics in terms of technical specifications with its highlighted features primarily being its design as well as its affordable price tag. Here is what the Samsung Galaxy J1 has to offer. Samsung Galaxy J1 Technical Specifications Display Display Size: 4.3 inches Display Type: TFT capacitive touchscreen Screen Resolution: 480 x 800 pixels Screen Resolution Density: 217 ppi Screen Protection: None The Samsung Galaxy J1 features rather interesting display properties. The Galaxy J1 boasts of a 4.3-inch TFT capacitive display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. This particularly stands out as it is exactly the same display specifications as those found on the Samsung Galaxy S2. The notable difference between the Galaxy J1 display and that of the Galaxy S2 is that the latter is an Amoled display. Design Frame Dimensions: 129 x 68.2 x 8.9 mm Weight: 122 g The Samsung Galaxy J1 features the generic Samsung Budget device design. You get a polycarbonate frame and some well rounded corners. Samsung really tried hard to give the device a premium feel, something that the company often overlooked on previous budget smartphones. The Smartphone is affordable, but fortunately doesn’t look cheap. Performance Operating System: Android OS, v4.4.4 (KitKat) CPU: Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 RAM: 512 MB Internal Memory: 4GB Micro SD: MicroSD, up to 128 GB The Samsung Galaxy J1 boasts a technical profile that is sub-par to what you will get on other Smartphones in the same price range. In an age where budget devices feature Quad core CPUs, the Galaxy J1 has a Dual Core CPU. Another weak point is the 512 MB RAM. That’s definitely doesn’t look pretty on the device and generally Samsung could have done better. However, it’s awesome that the device runs Android OS, v4.4.4 out of the box. Camera Rear Camera: 5 MP Secondary Camera: 2 MP LED Flash: Yes The camera profile (especially the LED flash) of the Samsung Galaxy J1 is decent and strikes a bargain for that price.
