A couple of days back, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy J Max tablet along with the Galaxy J2 2016 in India. The Galaxy J2 2016 is the first smartphone to feature the all new Smart Glow feature on the rear which acts as a notification LED, Usage Alerts, and Selfie Assist. The Galaxy J2 2016 featuring decent specifications is priced at Rs. 9,750. But the company might also bring even more affordable smartphone in the coming days.
The Galaxy J1 Ace Neo is now listed on the company’s South African website. It will be the successor to Galaxy J1 Ace that was launched in September last year at a price of Rs. 6,300. Though there is no pricing or the availability of the device is mentioned, we got the details about its specifications. The device sports the same 4.3-inch WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) Super AMOLED display as on its predecessor.
Under the hood is the unknown quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz coupled with 1GB of RAM. The storage on this device is doubled up from 4GB to 8GB when compared to Galaxy J1 Ace. Though 4.4GB of storage is only available to end user, there is a MicroSD card slot for further expansion up to 128GB. The version listed on the website come with single SIM option, while we guess there will also be a dual SIM variant.
It has a 5MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and a 2MP selfie camera on the front. The device is backed by a 1,900mAh battery that is rated to deliver 10 hours of talk time. The design of the Galaxy J1 Ace Neo looks same as the Galaxy J1 Ace with the plastic bumpers on all the four corners. The power button is placed on the right edge while the volume rocker sits on the left edge of the device.
The device measures 130.1 67.6 x 9.5 mm and weighs 131 grams. It will be available in White, Black, and Blue color options. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS/GLONASS, and MicroUSB 2.0 port. We also expect the device to be launched in the selected Asian markets including India.
