Samsung has announced the launch of a new affordable smartphone, named as Galaxy J1 Ace. The handset has been launched at Rs 6,300.
This official announcement came almost a month after its unofficial release about which we reported last month.
The Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace sports a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display that has 480×800 pixels resolution. It is powered by a dual core processor and 512 MB RAM. It has just 4 GB of internal memory but its expandable storage slot can hold a micro SD card of up to 128 GB.
The J1 Ace has an 1800 mAh battery, 5 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front camera. An LED flash light is also there on its back panel to assist the rear camera in low light. The dual SIM Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace offers Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi (b/g/n), WiFi Direct and GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS.
Sadly, the new phone is based on Android KitKat operating system. It measures 130.1 x 67.6 x 9.5mm (height, width, thickness).
The Sub-Rs 7,000 smartphone segment is currently filled with many lucrative handsets which we recently highlighted in our ‘Top 5 Smartphones Under Rs 7,000’ article.
Most of the leading devices in this price segment offer HD displays, quad core processor, 1 GB RAM (some even offer 2 GB) and even 16 GB of internal memory. Clearly, the Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace seems to be an outdated device, atleast at its current price.
