Want a low-end device? Samsung might be unveiling its Samsung J smartphone soon

Samsung’s been keeping itself busy by working on a handful of devices at the same time, if you believe the leaks that have been churning the rumour mill, that is. It’s apparently got its hands full with the purported Samsung Galaxy S6, the Galaxy Note 5, and it also might have a low-end unit it’s working on.

The speculation is that Samsung has in works a smartphone currently codenamed SM-J100F, but sources claim it will eventually be called Samsung J. The device got tongues wagging when it first appeared on the graphics benchmark site for Android, GFXBench.

There’s some really important specs revealed on this leak – according to the source, it will be a 4.8in 800 x 480 touch screen with multi-touch gesture support, a 5MP back snapper with LED flash and a 5MP front camera.

It’s also said to boast 1GB of RAM and 4GB of built-in storage, in addition to a Marvell PXA 1908 chipset with 64-bit support and a 1.2GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU. The SoC mentions that it will support 4G LTE Cat.4, but it seems to be available in all ranges of devices these days.

It might come out of the box with Android 4.4.4 KitKat, plus you’ll find the standard Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS features on it.

If this eventually pans out, this device could possibly mark the introduction of a new lineup of handsets (a J range). Unfortunately, there are no other details of the smartphone available but we’d advise you to hang tight – if the rumours are true, we’ll soon hear more about it in the months to come.
