Verizon Samsung Galaxy J1 poses for pictures ahead of launch

The Samsung Galaxy J1 from Verizon has just been revealed, thanks to a new leak. The handset isn’t official yet, but a site has managed to access a couple of images of the device through a tipster.

The Galaxy J1 is your run of the mill budget device and will probably be sold through Verizon Prepaid when it breaks cover subsequently. Interestingly, the smartphone is shown to be 4G LTE compatible, which could be a major selling point when it lands on the shelves.

The original Galaxy J1 that is available elsewhere only supports 3G HSPA networks, so it’s good to see that Samsung has baked in support for 4G LTE for the Verizon variant. It is very likely that the smartphone will not be known as the Galaxy J1 when it is unveiled as the carriers like to have unique device names of their own.

In any case, we should learn more about the Galaxy J1 over the coming days when the carrier makes it official. The Galaxy J1 packs a 4.3 inch 480 x 800 resolution display, a 1.2 GHz dual core Spreadtrum chipset, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable), 5MP rear camera, Android 4.4.4 KitKat and an 1,850 mAh battery.
