Samsung J1 4G and Samsung J2 Ace Launched At 6,890 INR and 8,490 INR

Samsung India has introduced two new budget J-series smartphones for 2017, the Samsung J1 4G and J2 Ace. And the Galaxy moniker seems to be gone for good. Both of these entry level smartphones pose with basic hardware and are primarily targeted at first time android users.


Priced at 6,890, the Samsung J1 4G includes a 4.5-inch 800 x 480 AMOLED display and is powered by 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage. The handset includes a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, and a modest 2050mAh battery. The software is quite dated. The J1 4G is still running Android Lollipop based OS

On the other hand, Samsung J2 Ace includes a 5-inch qHD display and is powered by 1.4GHz quad-core processor with 1.5GB RAM and 8GB storage. Other features include 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera and a 2600mAh battery. The Software is Android Marshmallow.
