    Not too long ago Samsung claimed they were going to slow down the production of a large variety of smartphones and refocus their efforts on fewer models. Apparently, that was just lip-service to the media, because they just announced a completely new Galaxy series of smartphones to add to the plethora of options already coming.

    The "pinnacle" of their new J Series Galaxy model is the Galaxy J1, and here are the humdrum specs:
    • 1.2 GHz dual-core processor of unknown origin
    • 4.3-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display
    • Dual SIM capabilities
    • Android 4.4 KitKat on board
    • 5 MP camera with LED flash on the back
    • 2 MP snapper on the front (includes a Palm Selfie function which can detect movement so you can take selfies using hand gestures)
    • 512 MB of RAM
    • 4 GB of internal memory
    • A microSD card slot
    • 1850 mAh removable battery
    • Ultra Power Saving mode
    • Weighs 122 grams
    • Measures 129 x 68.2 x 8.9 mm
    • Three color versions: blue, black, and white
    The phone will be launching in Malaysia and Russia soon. We have no further details than that. Apparently, Samsung feels they can just slap a "Galaxy" name on any device to make it a great product. Feel free to "groan" now...

    Looks like a super low end market phone.

    Perfect fit for Malaysia. Don't know about Russia.

    I'm not sure about Russia either. This phone will be a hit though in that general region if it has a super low price.

    Selling @ $250 to $319. A bit pricey. The Yureka is a much better buy at $160.

    W...t...f...? Can somebody please let Samsung know what they said they're gonna do?

    Funny that I'm seeing this article after skimming articles last night about how even though the Note 4 gave them a bit of a boost, their numbers are still down. STOP doing what's obviously not working, especially when you outlined a plan that sounds smarter to everyone...except maybe you.

    What was that last "lower-end" phone they announced? The public in that market was underwhelmed. LEARN SOMETHING SAMMY!
