Samsung is aggressively expanding their product portfolio in the country. In the latest move, the South Korean tech giant announced yet another smartphone, namely, the Samsung Galaxy J1 (4G) whose primary highlight is the support for VoLTE.

In terms of specifications, the Galaxy J1 (4G) will be the successor to the last year’s Galaxy J1 (2016) smartphone. It retains the same 4.5-inch WVGA display, but this time, the company is adding a Super AMOLED panel. Considering as an entry-level phone, there are no sensors present in this phone, which is not a new thing for Samsung.

At the heart of Galaxy J1 (4G), is a Spreadrum SC7727SE processor with Mali 400 GPU, which is a quad-core chip with all the four cores clocked at 1.3GHz. Supported by the chipset is 1GB of RAM to take care of system operations and 8GB of internal storage, out of which a measly 3.7GB will be available for the user. The storage can be further expanded up to 64GB via a microSD card slot.
