Samsung unleashed the Galaxy J1 (2016) smartphone in Russia two weeks ago, but now this 4.5-inch handset is also headed for the US market. According to Evan Blass, AT&T will be the launch carrier of this smartphone for budget-conscious users in the US. Unfortunately, he has no information on its pricing and launch date at this time.

Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) is a compact Android handset powered by a quad-core Exynos 3475 SoC with ARM Mali-T720 graphics, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage and microSD support, 2 MP front camera and 5 MP image snapper on the back, as well as a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display. The 2050 mAh battery provides enough juice to keep the new Galaxy J1 up for 12 hours in regular conditions and no less than 39 hours when playing music.

The Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) will probably hit the US loaded with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and there is virtually no chance for it to ever receive an official Marshmallow update. However, this should not be a major problem for a handset expected to cost around $120 USD. We will get back to it as soon as AT&T silently adds it to the portfolio since nobody should expect a special launch event for a handset belonging to the low-end category.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
