Samsung is competing on the high-end, mid-range and entry-level range of smartphones with equal interest. Amid rumors of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 and s6 Edge, there are fresh leaked images of a new smartphone with low-end specs.

Targeted mainly at the entry-level market, the all-new Galaxy J series will be inaugurated with Galaxy J1. Leaked images give away more than just the smartphone's design.

Based on the leaked specs by SamMobile, there are going to be a few new additions in the Galaxy J1. According to the report, the Galaxy J1 will sport a 4.3-inch WVGA display with 480x800-pixel resolution, 5MP rear facing camera and a 2MP front snapper. Interestingly, the budget smartphone will feature a 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core Marvell PXA1908 processor backed by a 1GB RAM, 4GB storage with a microSD slot. There is also a 1,850mAh battery aboard to run the show.

What's keeping the smartphone unique from other budget smartphones will be the inclusion of features like Ultra Power Saving Mode and other custom software.

The Galaxy J1 is expected to arrive in four variants, single-SIM LTE, dual-SIM LTE, single-SIM 3G and dual-SIM 3G. There will clearly be a difference in price between the LTE and the 3G variants, which will have a VGA front camera instead of 2MP, according to SamMobile.

The publication also shared series of images that show the Galaxy J1's design, which looks like a Galaxy Alpha-spin off. But the company will not choose metal over plastic for the J series as it will try to keep the price at the down low.

SamMobile is also predicting the leaked smartphone's release to happen on Wednesday, since the images have the date set for January 14. But CNET is pinning down the release on the Mobile World Congress event, where the tech giant is also expected to launch its flagship smartphone.
