Samsung Galaxy J1 2017 Is Perhaps The Cheapest AMOLED Display Phone

Samsung today added another budget Android phone to its J series portfolio, dubbed as the Galaxy J1. Well, the hardware on this one is quite modest, which means this is a phone befitting to only first time and basic users. But at 6,890 INR, Galaxy J1 is perhaps the cheapest phone with an AMOLED display.


The aforementioned display is 4.5-inches in size with 800 x 480 (WVGA) resolution. The handset is powered by 1.3 GHz quad-core Spreadrum SC7727SE processor with Mali 400 GPU, 1GB RAM  and 8GB of internal storage. With that little to spare you are bound to run out of storage and that is where the MicroSD card slot on the phone will come handy.

The dual SIM handset includes a 5MP autofocus rear camera with LED Flash, f/2.2 aperture and has a 2MP front-facing camera with an f/2.2 aperture lens for selfies. Samsung hasn’t clearly mentioned what version of Android is running on the smartphone. The software could be either based on Android Marshmallow or Android Lollipop.


The Galaxy J1 supports 4G VoLTE and will be compatible with Reliance Jio network. Other features include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and 2050mAh battery.

The Galaxy J1 will be available for purchase on both online and offline retail stores in Gold, Black and White color options for 6,890 INR.
