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...
