Samsung announced the Galaxy J1 earlier this year and, so far, it hasn’t been launched by a major U.S. carrier. That changes now. Thanks to an anonymous source, we’ve obtained pictures of the Galaxy J1 with Verizon Wireless branding, suggesting the device is about to make its debut in the U.S.
It’s a relatively low-end smartphone, all things considered, but that should mean that you won’t need to pay a whole lot of cash out of pocket. You should expect a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch 480 x 800-pixel display, a 5-megapixel camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
Things may be a bit different with the U.S. unit than the model Samsung introduced earlier this year, however.
As you’ll note in the photo above, there’s support for 4G LTE connections, which the original Galaxy J1 doesn’t support since it was limited to 3G connectivity. We suspect Verizon’s model also won’t support dual-SIM cards, and this means that some of the aforementioned specs stand to be updated, too.
We don’t know when the Galaxy J1 will launch, and it’s entirely possible Verizon will scrap the launch, but the images above suggest it’s on its way.
